Holiday Card

Hi All,

Happy Sunday to you! Hope you're weekend is going well.

All this month at Paper Maniac the design team has been creating various projects for the holiday season. There have been some really neat ideas that are also simple to do. I on the other hand am out of creative ideas and with a sick kid at home, I opted for a holiday card for my work with week.

I went for a vintage Christmas feel for this card and used these pretty holiday papers by Graphic 45, which are available at Paper Maniac and I've distressed the edges. I used the sketch from Charisma Cardz and embellished with satin ribbon and prima flowers and a couple black sticky gems.

The image is from Belles and Whistles and has been colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. Thanks for sharing these sweeties with me Erin! This card also fits the challenge at Colour Create which was red, green, and white.

Thanks for dropping by today. If you are in need of more holiday crafting ideas, check out the Paper Maniac blog for some inspiration! Paper Maniac is also having a sale on select Unity products and some of the previous set can now be purchased in single stamps! But hurry they won't be available for long...once the singles are sold, that's it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Happy stamping! :)
