Let's Be Merry

Happy Saturday peeps!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

This card is one of three I did using the Tim Holtz Halftone Christmas Stamps. I kept the colour scheme similar for all three. The card looks quite big in the photo, but it's only a tincy wincy one - 7.5cm x 14.5cm.

What you need...

Stamps: Tim Holtz Collection Halftone Christmas (CMS204) - Stampers Anonymous; Christmas Sampler - Paper Smooches
Patterned paper: Oh Deer! 6"x6" Paper Pad - Fancy Pants Designs
Card stock: white
Ink pads: Spanish Moss - Versafine; Aquamarine - Avery Elle; Jumbo Java - VersaMagic
Ribbon: teal
Gems: teal

What you do...

Create a white 7.5cm x 14.5cm top fold blank.
With Spanish Moss, stamp the halftone part of the tree to the left, just over half way up the blank. Over stamp the tree detail with Jumbo Java ink.
For the moon, stamp the halftone part of the snowflake in Aquamarine to the right at the top of the tree.
Cut a piece of the tree paper 4.5cm x 7.5cm and attach to the blank under the tree.
Wrap and tie ribbon around the patterned section.
Stamp the sentiment with Jumbo Java and finish with a few gems.

I love the colour combination of teals, blues and browns for Christmas. They seem to work really well together.

With this being an odd sized card, I'll have to make an envelope for it. It's a good way to use up old papers from my stash.

I'll be back soon with the last card I did using this colour scheme and stamp set. Thank you for calling by! TTFN xx
