June Keeping Christmas Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's the 25th of the month and that means it's time to join my crafty friends once again as we share Christmas inspirations along our Keeping Christmas Blog Hop. If you're just popping in, the hop starts over at Kelly's blog. If you came from Claire Broadwater's blog, then you're right on track! 😊

The purpose of this little hop is to share Christmas inspiration and get a jump start on our 2019 Christmas projects so we're not slammed come December! Hard to believe we're already half way through the year!

As I was pondering what to create this month, I came across a loose sheet of designer paper from the Lost & Found Christmas collection from many moons ago in my Christmas bin and fell in love with the bird and wreath design in the paper. So I decided to start with that as my inspiration and create a vintage style Christmas card (my favorite kind to create).

As I sorted through stamp sets, the O Holy Night set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps caught my eye, and I just had to use these lyrics as the focal point of my card.  I embossed the stamp onto a die cut tag of designer paper, then sponged with antique linen and ground espresso distress oxides.

I wanted something more for the card, so decided to stamp and color one of the beautiful flowers from the Christmas Botanicals set. I colored with Copic markers and then added some sparkle to the image with Emerald City Inklingz and Christmas Cheer Shimmerz. Love that sparkle! Another coordinating strip of paper down the side, accented with a string of rhinestones finished things off.

Hope this fun little card has inspired you! For more eye candy and inspiration, head on over to the next stop on the hop... Kim Heggins!

Love the vintage feel to this beautiful card Julee - and that carol is one of my favourites too, which may just have biased me slightly in it's favour ;)
