Christmas Card Hop {Viva Las VegaStamps!}

Yay! Blog hop time with the fabulous VLVS! Design Team.


We've lined up to offer you some inspiration when it comes to Christmas Cards! There is a prize so be sure to stop by each blog and leave some love. One random comment wins a LB O' Rubber and a Christmas themed Grab Bag! 

Our hop :
Onto my card eh?? I went with a woodsy sort of "All around good time" card using the Peace On Earth sentiment.


The base of the card is kraft cardstock. I livened up the background by stamping the brand new Sheet Music Background in nice rich Archival Black ink. I've been doing this whole creating new stamps thing a long time now, and even I'm surprised by the detail and glory this new background stamp has.



Peace On Earth was stamped in the same ink on a matching piece of kraft paper and then trimmed to size. The white block is a piece of white cardstock diecut. I trimmed off one side and adhered it down with Miracle Tape.



This version of Alice with Fawn/Deer is also from the brand new release. I adore how earthly, loving, and down to earth she feels. She makes a great Holiday themed stamp and gives her a little break from that maddening world.



My card was finished with a bundle of May Arts Twine, vintage button and some UmWowStudio Star Confetti

Thanks for stopping by today -- don't forget to leave me some love and then you're onto Glenda
