Season of Joy



I know, I know ... I have been very slack blogging lately ... but the truth is, I haven't been doing much creating lately either. Anyway, I made this christmas card last night. It is a double fold card from Michelle Giraud. A very talented lady, if you get the chance you should check out some of her work. Beautiful!

Stamps: Season of Joy, so swirly jumbo wheel
Card Stock: Very vanilla, dashing DS paper, real red & river rock
Ink: Old olive, real red & river rock
Accessories: Spiral punch, sponge dauber & slit punch

I don't know if you can tell but I have used the slit punch for the christmas tree to slide into, but it doesn't really close properly. Michelle used a ribbon to tie around hers.
