Deck the Halls

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  Hope everyone is having a fun and safe three day weekend (or if you're like me, a four day weekend).  Today I decided to beat the Christmas rush and started working on making Christmas cards.  Hey, it's never too early to start working on those things, right??!!  Especially if you have a long list of special people to send them to!!!

For this card, I started with kraft paper for my background, added an olive and white checked paper and then white card stock that I rounded the edges on.  I stamped the pine branch twice in two different shades of green.  Aren't the Christmas ornaments hanging from the branch cute?  The three different Christmas ornaments are from Two Paper Divas new set called "Deck the Halls."  I stamped the string with bows in black ink on the white paper.  The ornaments were stamped, colored with a gold Wink of Stella pen and then cut out.  I wanted them to really stand out, so I popped each one of them.  I was having so much fun with my gold glitter pen, so I used it on the branch and the "Deck the Halls" sentiment at the bottom to carry over the gold, shiny look for this card,.  Finally, I finished this "fancy" card by adding three gold pearls to the top right corner.  

Thanks for taking a minute to check out my blog today!  Only 111 days until Christmas, one card down, a whole lot more to go. 

Make it a great day!
