Welcome to this week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop. This week we have a great sketch to be our guide.
I saw that middle circle and immediately knew I wanted to do a belly band…
…So I started with a base of Garden Green layered with Gold Foil Sheet and Cherry Cobbler. I then used the gorgeous Pretty Pines Thinlits to create a cluster in the upper left corner using Garden Green, Old Olive, Gold, and Cherry Cobbler.
Next I created the belly band using the Layering Circles, the sentiment from the Wonder of Christmas Stamp Set, and some more Gold Foil (is it possible to have too much gold on a Christmas card?!).
Honestly, I was going to leave it at that, but when I showed my 10-year-old girl the card, she said – Mommy, you have to have something under the band. So, why not. I took another sentiment from the Wonder of Christmas and stamped it in Green Garden on Cherry Cobbler and did some more layering underneath.
Now click on the next button below to swing on over to Amy‘s blog to see what she’s created for today.
