Blending the old with the new!
Hello! I am so glad you stopped by to visit! December crept up on me and now I'm in a semi rushed state trying to get all of my projects completed on time! Good thing I had a jump start on my cards!
Today's card features a stamp set I've had for quite a while and it is still one of my favorites! I gave this set a modern twist with some new paper and accessories from the SU Holiday catalog...
I love the silver and blue combination that seems to be so popular this year, and the papers in Winter Frost are gorgeous! I paired the paper with the pretty silver ribbon layered on top of some pool party seam binding. After I finished my card, I realized that pool party was not the blue in the DSP, but it went beautifully anyway so I left everything as is!
Our family survived two food filled days of Thanksgiving and now we are in full mode for Christmas! Hopefully all of the decorating and cookie baking will keep me focused on the Christmas cards that I really need to finish! Wish me luck!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a marvelous and crafty day!
