For today's card I used some of my new supplies that arrived in the post this week. I had taken advantage of some online Black Friday sales and it really felt like Christmas (or rather, St. Nicholas Day) to me when all the parcels arrived in a time span of 2 days, although my orders had been placed in various parts of the world and on different days.
Anyhow, here's my card:
And here's the sketch I used:
I absolutely love the papers of my new Signature Christmas 6x6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye. Can you believe I picked this up for only $4 in the sale? I stamped the sentiment (from Christmas in the Air stamp set by Verve Stamps) in Memento Rich Cocao ink and cut out the label with my new Lifestyle Crafts die (nesting freame 3). I traced around the inside of the die with a Promarker pen in a matching colour. The scalloped border was made with a Spellbinder's die and the ribbon was cut with a new Die'sire die (Lace Border 7). The lace border is actually 4 rows wide, but I cut the strip of paper to size before die cutting. The poinsettia die is by Marianne Design and I got the lush felt from Ladybug Crafts Ink. I finished the card off with a pearlescent button from my friend's big old button box and a few Kaisercraft pearls.
