Something New for Christmas

We all have something new in our stash, I am sure!

 

Maybe it is the ribbon you have just purchased or the buttons you just had to have that haven’t been opened, I can see you nodding your head.

 

Something New is the theme of the challenge I have chosen at Holly Jolly for this week, so I have created my card with a new purchase which is some of the new In-Color cardstock Coastal Cabana.

 

I have taken the inspiration for my layout from the Just Add Ink Sketch and the colours have been inspired by the Dynamic Duos challenge which is Basic Gray and one other colour.

 

Here is my card:

Ink: Basic Gray 
Accessories:  Labels Collection Framelits, Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon (retired), Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder (retired), Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive

 

 

I am really happy with my “Something New” Christmas card and when I look at it now it looks almost like it is an ornament.

 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Very pretty. The embossing is fab. I like the "ornament" look to it...and the sentiment is so great! Thanks for joining us over at The Squirrel and The Fox.

A lovely classic Christmas card Meighan. The embossing adds so much subtle detail that complements the CAS design. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.
