The Light Of Winter

Hi everyone! I can't believe the month is half over already although I'm super excited that Christmas is only 10 days away!  The image and sentiment used on today's card are from another new release stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps called The Light Of Winter.  The holly is a separate image in the set and was cut out and adhered over the candlebra.

My card base is Real Red layered with White Cardstock then Nestled (top) and Toasty (bottom) Patterned Paper stitched around the edges. The image and sentiment were printed on White Cardstock with rounded corners and the image colored in using copic markers. I stitched around the edges then layered the image on Real Red. To embellish the card I added a strip of Pure Poppy Saddle Stitched Ribbon with a matching bow and a champaine dew drop in each corner of the card base as well as two along the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

I just love this card. The candle looks just like the Walt Disney candle on the show we watch every Christmas Eve, lol.
Hope you have a nice day.
