Classic Christmas

Hi, Diana here today, to share a card I made with the classic colors of Christmas.

I always have such a hard time combining patterned paper - until I realized that the papers in a pack always go wonderful with each other.  So now I just need to stop buying individual sheets. :)

Another easy way to make a card is to use My Favorite Things Blueprints.  The elements practically build themselves into a card.  Here I used MFT Blueprints 13, with paper from a paper pad in my supplies.

I added a bow to my fishtail - always add a bit of interest to turn things on its side.  I die cut the Impression Obsession Merry Christmas twice - once in white and another in gold card stock. I layered them on my card, off-setting them just a bit for a shadow effect.  I find this help make such an ornate die easier to read against a patterned background.

Finally, a white Poppy tamps Small Blooming Poinsettia, and adding Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Aztec Gold glitter inthe center. I added  a couple of sprigs from a pine branch punch to balance the white bow.

*NOTE - Impression Obsession has Pine Branch or Fir Sprig Set dies, and Dee's Distinctively Ponderosa Pine Sprig dies, that would work great.
