A Christmas Wish

Hey everybody! I’m back with my second post this morning sharing a pretty Christmas card I created in non-traditional colors using the Slimline Woodgrain Background stamp from Prickley Pear Stamps, which is part of the new release featuring a super cute library stamp set, several very cool chicken stamp sets, and a chicken wire background stamp. I wanted to create something that’s not library- or chicken-related to show how versatile this woodgrain background is!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding landscape card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and a layering panel and 1-1/4″-ish strip from CutCardStock Bright Silver Foil cardstock. I started by stamping the Slimline Woodgrain Background stamp in Catherine Pooler Tranquil ink on the lighter weight Solar White panel which I layered on the Silver Foil cardstock panel and then adhered the Silver Foil strip across the bottom. I added a poinsettia element from the Spellbinders Sparkling Holidays Sticker Pack along with several Darice iridescent gemstones which completed the front.

And one more look… I always love a Christmas card in non-traditional colors and this one with the woodgrain background turned out so pretty!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
