JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #2

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #2!  Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps!  This week, it’s the Stamper’s Dream design team!  So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am US Central (Midnight Australian EST) for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration Blog!

Today's card started as a Joy Fold card, but I really wanted to frame the stamps with this MS punch around the page set and it just wasn't working, so instead it just folds on one side leaving the background visible and you can write on the vanilla panel inside.  The backing card is 5 1/2in x 8in and scored at 5 1/2in.  I've used Very Vanilla and green bazzill for matting and topped with two pieces of Belle DP.  Underneath each panel I've attached pieces of clear organdy ribbon to close the card.  
The sentiment and borders are from JustRite's Christmas Nested Frames set and I've stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Very Vanilla.  (I wouldn't normally use cardstock designed for watercolour, because in my opinion the colours don't blend properly - but since I wasn't blending on such small images I didn't worry about it.)  I've coloured the borders using Copics (R29, G21, G28) and the inner panel has been cut and popped up on foam tape.  I framed it all with the Martha Stewart Iron Gate punch around the page set and finished by adding a couple of blush pearls to the corners.

Stamps - Christmas Nested Frames (JustRite)
Paper - Red and Green Bazzill, Very Vanilla, Kaisercraft Belle DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Martha Stewart Iron Gate Punches, Clear Organdy Ribbon, Foam Tape, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls.

What a very pretty holiday card! I really like the traditional color scheme and your layers of paper. The patterned paper is very pretty. Love the unique opening to your design, too. And those nested holiday stamps are fabulous. Love the punched border behind.
