Layered Christmas Card

I love Melissa Phillips' cards. Her designs are awesome. I just love all the layering she uses. This week she is featured in PTI's Make It Monday: Anchoring with Border and Banner Dies. I just wish my cards looked half as good as hers.  This is my take; a Christmas card.

I actually like the way this card turned out. (But I'm not going to divulge how long it actually took to make this card) The white banner was actually cut from white glitter paper; it just didn't show up in the photo. I also used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment in Fresh Snow 4 times and then stamped it with glue so I could glitter the sentiment (from Peaceful Pine cones) to accompany the glittered banner.

I'm also back participating in this week's Merry Monday's challenge which is stars.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

PTI Blog Hop: February 2015

My blog continues to be neglected. Not much crafting going on lately. Instead I have been spending time away from the cold cruising the Caribbean.  Now that I'm back I thought I would make a quick card for this month's Bog Hop at PTI.  The challenge is to create something based upon the inspiration photo below.

 My background was created using a stencil and inks on glossy paper. I'm still learning how to use my MISTI (most incredible stamp tool invented) with die cuts. It worked perfectly doing selective stamping with the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. I'm volunteering at our hospital's gift shop, so I'l be blog hopping this evening. Enjoy!
