Blue Christmas

Hello there, it's Gracie! Christmas is approaching, and I have a new Christmas card to share with you all.

This card is unusual, (at least for me), since it's blue! It sure can be given to a man or a woman, because it has a classic feel that would be suitable for any recipient.

To make my card I printed a Christmas tag on White Pearl Linen. I mounted the image on various labels, but they are actually altered. The image is directly adhered to a combination of two blue, Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One, which were glued one on top of the other and that ended up looking like and oval. Then I die cut a label from Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor, to which I cut the sides, making it narrower. Finally I combined two Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags Two, to create a long rectangle.

I made the card base using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. To add interest to the card base I die cut a beautiful blue frame (one of my favorites) with Our Daily Bread Designs' Vintage Flourish pattern. Finally I decorated the image with a few Baby Rhinestones - Silver and before adhering the labels to the card I added a piece of blue ribbon that finished the design nicely.

I love how these die cuts look together. The card ended up looking very elegant. I invite you to check out the supplies used from Classy Cards 'n Such store. Remember to use my code Gracie-10 to get 10% off your entire order!
