Christmas card Sunday #37

Hi there!  Time for another Christmas card!  We are up to # 37!!  Wow!  Christmas really will be here before we know it!!  This is the last of the cards we made Friday night at my Christmas card class.  It was my favorite so I save it for today!  Here it is:

I made one as an example for class and then made a second one in class.  I wanted to show the girls that you could use a set that wasn't necessarily a holiday set and turn it into one!  This uses the stem from Simply Sketched.  I made the background with it.

I changed the placement of the sentiment on this one and left off the pearls.  Funny how moving one thing can make the whole card look different! 

We stamped the stem in green and then colored the berries with a red marker before stamping.  We water colored the stems and then added Dazzling details in red to them.  We made a mat for the sentiment by punching a solid red punch, cutting in in half and then adding it to the back. The red strips were left over from another project, but worked perfectly to break up the white space!  ALWAYS save your scraps!! :)

The Details:
Stamps: Tags for You and Simply Sketched (Hostess set)
Paper; Real Red, Garden Green and Very Vanilla
Ink: Certainly Celery,Old Olive and Real Red
Punches and Dies: Label Bracket punch
Extras: Aqua Painter, Dazzling Details (red) and Dimensionals

Have a great day!  I will be back soonest with more to share! :)
