The September Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink means we're only three months from Christmas Day. Time to get your "Kraft" on and think about buying and wrapping gifts. Fortunately, at this point in my life I don't need to do that much any more, but I do like to make my Christmas cards. What a great photo imspiration to jumpstart that mojo!
Here's my creation based on the image above. Yay, one more Christmas card done!
Because I don't "yet" own a pinecone stamp, I had to get a bit creative so I stamped dark chocolate berries topped off with a shimmery Gelly Roll pen. My black card stock was lightly sponged with white pigment ink, wrapped in twine and adhered to a white card base. Some of the greenery is popped up using SU Dimensionals, as are the berries. The tag was tied to the twine so it's floating freely. To coordinate with the white edges of my die cuts, I stamped just the "laughter" banner of the sentiment using black ink on white. That was adhered to the Kraft tag stamped in black ink.
Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. Looking forward to seeing all the fabulous creations during this hop!
