Joyeux Noel

Hi everyone! I have another card to share with you today that I made for one of the holiday challenges on the Moxie Fab World blog.


The holiday tag stamp is from the Very Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. Claire's sets are fantastic, and I just couldn't resist this with the beautiful tag image and build-it-yourself snowflakes (I also picked up the Halloween Party stamp set as well).

The tag was stamped in Bravo Burgundy. The snowflake and sentiment were stamped with Distress Inks. The background is three strips of Cosmo Cricket paper from the Oh Joy Collection. These were matted on a piece of Sage Shadow cardstock and stitched (I used the same sketch as I did for this card). The card base is Vintage Cream. Loved using these stamps!

Hope you have a great evening!

  5. This is such a beautiful card! You did a wonderful job on the color combo - it takes a gifted person to use so many patterned pieces of paper on a project and for it to look so great! You did an awesome job on the stitching, too!
