Sandy Hulsart  (you are here)

For my card today, I began with a 6 x 6 white card base and added this beautiful paper from the Festive Holly collection.  Create a small border centered horizontally on the card.  Add the Believe in the Magic panel backed with white card stock.  Also add the small Christmas Blessings panel, again backed with white card stock.  Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp and die cut the holly pieces from the Festive Holly and Cardinals Cling Stamp Set and coordinating Die Set.   Color with Prismacolor pencils and add snow accents with a Marvy Snow Marker.  Adhere to the card with dimensional foam.

Thanks for visiting and good luck with the blog hop.
