Happy Holidays!

Hi there!!

It's There She Goes Again Week at TSG! This week we featured three stamp sets: Stick Together, Penguin Pals, and Just for You.  My card is a little late!! I apologize for that! Never late is better, but better late than never, right?

I used one of my favorite sets - Just for You. I love this set because it works for several different occasions and even has matching dies which make the cutting work super easy! I reach for this set when I want to make a quick card and don't feel like coloring (yup, it happens!). This set makes adorable tags, too! 


The papers I used in my card are from the Bo Bunny Mistletoe paper pad. I did some stitching around the edges. That white thread really pops on those dark colors! I stamped my image a few times on a few different patterned papers and cut them out so that I could layer my image. I added some red rhinestones to the sentiment banner. I also used some Green V-Striped Twill Ribbon from Ribbon Carousel and tied it off with a little red twine.  When I went to adhere my image to the card, I felt like it blended in too much with the background , so I added the white embossed circle behind it to make it stand out a little better.


I am off from school all week next week, so I'm looking forward to a week of relaxing and stamping!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
