JustRite Blog Hop!!!!!

Welcome to the July JustRite Blog Hop!!!!! Today I'm excited to show you a sneak peek of the upcoming release of Christmas Treasures which will be available for purchase in August. This is a gorgeous 4 Border, 4 Centers set which fits the 3 1/4 inch circle stamper. I chose this beautiful cardinal, holly and birdhouse centre with the holly and sentiment border. As soon as I saw this border I knew I had to use it. My Mum loves that Christmas Carol and I thought of her straightaway - it brings back a lot of wonderful Christmas memories. I was also inspired by this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge - I thought it would be perfect for what I wanted to make!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with Chocolate Chip. I then cut three strips of Basic Grey Wassail paper and matted it with Ruby Red and added that to the Chocolate Chip layer. For the main panel I stamped the Christmas Treasures border and centre in Chocolate Chip twice and cut the centre out of one with the Large Circle Nestabilities and coloured it with markers and a blender pen. Then I used the mat pack and paper piercer to pierce the edge of the centre layer and popped it up on foam tape. Then I cut out the border with the larger Circle Nestabilities from the same pack and coloured the holly with markers and attached to a Ruby Red layer that had been cut with the Label 3 die set. I finished off by adding some Latte Kaisercraft pearls to the corners and red satin ribbon to the top left and bottom right card corners. The bow was made using the Bow-Easy....which I tell you is REALLY easy to do and the bow is perfect!!! :)
