Joyful Christmas Greetings *Heartfelt Creations*

I have another CAS card for you today. This style is great if you lots and lots of holiday cards for friends and family. You could skip the stitching and make it even easier or try using a good pen and drawing a border. All of the stamps and paper are by Heartfelt Creations. 

I used this sketch for inspiration. The lines reminded of the wood grain in the Festive Yuletide Doorway stamp by Heartfelt Creations. Come over to Stuck On U Sketches and play with us!

I love using two colors of Distress Inks. Here, I used Vintage Photo and a bit of Barn Door on the sentiment.

A bit of Diamond Stickles (my favorite) here and there.

How about this sparkly trim?! I love holiday ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey there!!!
So today I brought my laptop over to my Mom's while we are visiting. I knew I'd have some time to blog hop and I am just pathetically behind on visiting you girls..so my sister, you are my first stop! =)
I ADORE the projects and just love the projects for Heartfelt Creations!
The inking is perfection and I am a HUGE fan of Stickles, in particular ALL the whites! They are amazing so I loved seeing those details (which is what I did a ton of on the layout up at SOUS right now).
Anyhow take care girlie!

Hugs, Leah
