Merry Little Christmas Card

Good evening everyone and Welcome Winter! :-D 

I want to share with you a Merry Little Christmas Card I made this weekend.

I used From the Heart Stamps 'Winter Friends' digital stamp set, which includes lovely image and three sentiments. 

For my card layout I used a beautiful sketch091 with a twist from {heart} sketches by Imke Ludvig. I didn´t use twist or a color board. 

Card dimensions are 98 mm x 143 mm (3 7/8" x 5 5/8").

List of supplies: 
  • From the Heart Stamps 'Winter Friends' 
  • Crafters Companion Bebunni Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Paper Pad
  • Gingham Prints lavender from Little Llama Shoppe (these were free gift in July 2014)
