Listing Your Wishes

Over at One Stitch At A Time this week, it was my turn to pick the image for the teamies in my  mini-team.  After a lot of umm-ing and aah-ing (as anyone that knows me, will testify that decisions are not my strong point!), I settled on Listing Your Wishes by My Heart Pieces.

This lovely image reminded me of Christmas cards I received as a child, so I opted to complement Santa and Rudolph with some lovely vintage style Christmas papers which I stumbled across on the Paper Inspirations website.  I welded the image to the card blank before cutting it on the Silhouette, so my Santa is using this gorgeous paper as a direct backdrop.  Originally, I had used white cardstock for the card blank, but it felt too harsh against the vintage-y creams and browns, so I popped a little slice of kraft on the front of the card.  The stripy paper on the front is from a First Edition Christmas Joy paper stack.  Finally, I created a circular stamp, which I printed and cut with my Silhouette, adding a couple of rich cream satin ribbon and a spotty epoxy button to top it off.

Make sure you pop over to One Stitch At A Time to have a peek at other DT projects…and why not enter the challenge too while you’re there!  The theme is Use A Digi, and there is another great prize for the winning entry using a Stitchy Bear Stamp, as well a runner up prize for entries that don’t have use Stitchy Bear stamp.
