Wishing You Joy


It's Monday, the start of another week, and the start of a very fun cross-promotional event between Timeless Twine and Lil' Inker Designs.  The Timeless Twine team was given the opportunity to choose some Lil' Inker Designs products to play with, and let me tell you, I found JOY!  Timeless Time and Lil' Inker Designs are a great combination!
I've been working diligently to get a Christmas card or 2 (or more) made each month so I'm not so overwhelmed when December hits.  Here's another one to add to the "ready" pile:


I used the Lil' Inker stamp set, "Jolly & Joyful" to stamp the words "wishing you", and to stamp the Scandinavian looking tree.  I then separated Timeless Twine Olive Green baker's twine into strands, using just the green, and stitched over the stamped tree image.  The word "joy" is a Lil' Inker Designs word die.
Here's a closeup of the stitched Christmas tree:


Some Cherry Red Timeless Twine wrapped around the card, and several cute bows finish off the card.  One of those cute bows is the mini bow die from Lil' Inker Designs.


Papers -- Echo Park Christmas This & That
Rhinestones -- stash
rectangle die -- Spellbinders
card base -- Close To My Heart cranberry

  22. This is a cute Christmas card, Julie!
    I need to be doing this too!
    My supplies are all up in an empty spare bedroom right now since our basement flooded. I've lost track of my main supplies.
    Hopefully this fall/winter I'll get a new craft room.
