Happy Holidays!

Hello Everyone!!  I've been doing so many red Christmas cards lately, that I've decided to boycott red for this card!!  :)  Instead I'm going with monochromatic green!  I really like the crisp, fresh look of white and one other colour and was happy with the way this turned out!

I've started with a base of green bazzill and layered with light green bazzill and some white that was embossed with the Jemara EF.  Across this I've added two pieces of green satin ribbon.  For my feature panel, I've stamped the outer border and the inner border from JustRite's Christmas Nested Frames in Memento Bamboo Leaves onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured them with Copics (YG93, YG95).  The outer border was cut out with the new Nested Frames Die by JustRite!  These dies are made by Spellbinders and JustRite is a Preferred Stamp Company - so you know they are going to be good!  :)  The inner border was cut out using the Nested Sentiment Dies and I used the Grand Calibur to die cut it, beautiful crisp cutting, first time, every time!!  :)  I actually cut a little green mat to go around it just to make it pop!  The sentiment comes from the Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, I've cut it with my trimmed and matted it with more green.  I then cut a 5" x 3.25" of green card and used the MS Deco Fan punch around the page set to create a beautiful frame for my sentiment and popped it all up on foam tape.

Stamps - Christmas Nested Frames, Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Green and Light Green Bazzill
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Memento Bamboo Leaves
Accessories - Nested Frames Dies, Nested Sentiment Dies (JustRite), MS Deco Fan Punches, Jemara EF, Green Satin Ribbon, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
