25 Days of Christmas Day 6 and The Matchup #6



Tonight we have a matchup between Close to My Heart and Carta Bella.  I chose an older stamp set called Holly Jolly Season and Merry & Bright paper. I used MFT Blueprints #1 to pull it together. If you don’t have any blueprints, I highly recommend them for card making! They make putting a card together a breeze when you’re short on time!


2015 Card 124 - CTMH Holly Jolly Season


The color is a bit off…I was too lazy to go downstairs to take it in my light box. Since the papers were brightly colored, I used MFT Ripe Raspberry ink for the sentiment.  I even stamped the inside to carry the sentiment through. So fun!

I wasn’t quite sure how to embellish the card, I almost left it plain but then decided to add some enamel dots from Teresa Collins Signature Essentials. I think they give off the right amount of “pop” against the papers.


That’s all for tonight!
