Lovin' my new kraft paper!

I am still working on my Christmas cards.  This weekend I was hopping around and found a beautiful vintage looking Christmas card.  I loved that there was no red or green on it, so I decided to Case It.  Who is the very talented papercrafter I cased ...  Jenny Gropp - One Krafy Kat.  Please check out her card HERE.


I knew as soon as I seen Jenny's card that it would be perfect for using this country scene.  I bought this one last year and I'm so glad I'm finally using it.  It is by Northwoods.  I would love to tell you who makes the "Joy to the World" background stamp, but when I pulled it off the block, I forgot to catalog it.  But any script background stamp would work.  I inked the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad by Ranger.  The "Champagne" Stickles really dressed this one up.  And my new favorite ribbon is by Offray.  It is double sided satin.  I got mine in several color's from Joann's craft store here in town.

I'm linking this one to:
Let's Ink It Up - Christmas with sparkle of bling
CREATE - Quick and Easy Christmas Card
PaperPlay - Monochromatic
Creative Belli - "R" embellishments (ribbon)
Creative Cottage - Untraditional Christmas card

I hope you are having fun gearing up for Christmas!  It's coming fast!
Have a blessed day
Melisa
