My Craft Spot Color Challenge - Christmas Card

Good morning! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot - and this week is a color challenge...but I decided to take the color challenge and make a Christmas Card:

This is the color combo - and at first I was totally thinking along the lines of a more spring theme card...then it hit me that it would be perfect for a Christmas Card too!

I pulled out all of my My Craft Spot Stamps to see if I could make what I was thinking of, and found that cute little branch on the Stamping All Around Fall set - and the sentiment from Mistletoe.

I started by die cutting a circle, then using it as a stencil to very lightly in pencil trace onto my white cardstock. Then, I stamped the leave a BUNCH of times in Versamark ink, then heat embossed with green Zing embossing powder. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment, then added all the enamel dots, and the little Ivory jute twine bow at the top. I used some Bazzil Cardstock for my cardbase - it matched perfectly with the green embossing powder!

I love being able to stretch my stamps to make new things - and like I told my husband, I especially love it when the idea I have in my head actually works on paper like I want it too! Sometimes that isn't the case...haha!

Anyway - thanks for stopping by! I hope you will head over to My Craft Spot to join in this fun challenge! Have a great day!!!
