Today The Dream Team from Stamper's Dream is joining JustRite Stampers for their newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #2! Every Wednesday until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing the JustRite Christmas Collection of stamps! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card and project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!
For my sample, I chose the Christmas Nested Frames set....sooo pretty, and yet so easy to use! I colored the pretty garland border using Copic markers. I love how it looks on Kraft cardstock! I distressed the edges of the main layers with a bone folder and several shades of Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I used Martha Stewart's Fern Punch and some pretty pearls for the "holly", and added some tiny pearls to the punched bottom edge of the card. Wanna hear something cool??? I used up some of my "left-over" tiny pearls for that bottom border. They were blue, white, cream, silver, and red....and thanks to the magic of Copic, they are now all the same lovely shade of dark red! How about that?!
Here's a close up:
