Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

I am loving today’s card – inspiration from a fab Mojo Sketch <3

Clean & Simple Cards 051

I picked up the Pink Paislee London Market papers for a steal, and felt inspired to use them for a Christmas card, even though these papers are about as far from Christmas as I think they could be!  I especially love the handmade banner, it’s my first one I’ve ever tried, I think it turned out good, check out the close-up below In love

Details on the make (do any of you read this part?  PLEASE  leave me a comment, tell me if you are interested and I’ll keep doing it – if not that’s ok too I just want to write what interests you guys!!)  I started inking the sides with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  The papers are mostly from Pink Paislee London Market, the darker pink is from SEI Field Notes, and the white piece with graphic print I made using HA Shadow Ink in Soft Pink and a HA print.  The main sentiment is Technique Tuesday inked in a ColorBox chalk ink.  The other sentiment is also TT, embossed in another CB ink.  Some Stickles in Thistle, and Ice Stickles in Strawberry Ice on top of those cute stars.

I haven’t had this much fun with a card in awhile – I hope you enjoy it too!
