Keeping Christmas November Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello! I'm joining some delightfully talented ladies on the 25th of every month with a fun Christmas creation. It's our last blog hop before Christmas, so I thought I'd make this one a good one.

Sandy Allnock's Winter Wonderland class was the inspiration for the background of my card this time around. I can't recommend her classes enough. It looks like a complicated drawing, but it literally took me about 20 minutes to create. If you've never taken one of her classes, let me just tell you that even beginners can create masterful looking creations immediately!

Since the background is so light, I drew in the background first (it was actually much larger, I cut it down) and then stamped my images on top and colored them in. Unfortunately, the images I used are from a My Favorite Things set that has since been discontinued. It's still one of my favorites and I find myself reaching for it at this time of year even though I have other, newer sets that I could use. It's just that cute! I trimmed down my piece so that it would fit the front of an A2 card base and then stamped my greeting in Versamark on black cardstock. I heat embossed my sentiment in white powder and then wrapped it around the panel and adhered it down. I used my double sided tape to adhere the panel to a card base and I was all done!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the other stops in the hop!
