Holiday Happiness



From Adriel:

Awhile ago, I was inspired by some colors I saw in a combination together and wanted to make a Christmas card with those colors. I sat down and tried out different colors before deciding on this color combo: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Pink Passion and lots of white!
Patterned Pines, the new hostess set we recently earned, made fun little trees for this card. I inked them up individually and cut them out. I dimensioned the trees over an Old Olive strip that I did some faux stitching on... okay, not my strength. I need some practice on faux stitching and getting the stitches even. (Kristina Werner makes it look terribly easy!)

I used a medium dot stamp from a random stamp set... I think we've got 2 or 3 of those dots from different sets! Anyway, dotted the bottom of the card in the various colors. Finished the card off with a sentiment from an old set called "So Many Sayings" and little tiny rhinestones on one of the trees.

Had fun, enjoyed myself and made something new! =)
