Bright & Merry Christmas

Watermarked Blog Posts-047

Have a Bright & Cheery Christmas…sometimes a simple sentiment is perfect! This card was inspired by a fun new sketch over at Retro Sketches…their sketches always keep me on my toes!


I had lots of fun deciding which pattern papers to use. I love the contrast of the peppermint stripes with the black background and print. A little barrier of red helps keep the patterns from overwhelming each other.

Simple and fun! I love that the embellishment is also the sentiment, it’s a twofer! Candy Dots and a big floppy bow finish the card off with just the right amount of fun:)

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
