Hi everyone, and welcome to day one of the 2016 Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop! I am so excited to be joining along with this year’s festivities! You should have arrived from Lisa Bzibziak‘s blog, but if you’ve just popped in, you can find the start of the hop here at Choux Choux Paper Art.
For my project, I have made a card that mixes and matches lots of my holiday favorites. I am a sucker for all things kraft related… makes me think of those brown paper packages tied up with string that we all dream about at the holidays. So of course I had to add in a few rustic, natural touches with kraft papers. And then I mixed in an eclectic batch of elements to create a sweet winter scene.
That adorable reindeer and sentiment come from a new-to-me stamp company called Darcie’s Heart & Home. I stamped the images onto kraft and watercolor paper, and then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. The patterned papers and trees are from Reverse Confetti. I used a small snowflake punch and cloud border die to create the look of fresh snowfall, all framed within my favorite stitched square dies.
I’ve had so much fun playing along with the holiday hop, and now it’s your turn!
