a uniquely Festive Friday...

Friday, August 22, 2014

Hello, everyone!  Here sharing a card for this unique Christmas inspiration over at the Festive Friday blog...

Now, I don't know about you...but this one had me thinkin', "hmmmm...."
After a little playing around, I came up with something I actually like...
It started with the striped frame and fun sentiment on vellum.  I knew I wanted to incorporate some Kraft colored snowflakes so the natural place to start was the little die cut one on the frame...then thought it would be nice to sprinkle some under and around the frame.  And finally, I knew I needed something fun down the left side...and she was done!
I was surprised to see so many people jump right in on this challenge I found a little tricky!  We'd love to see what you can do with have until Wed! (PLENTY o' time!;) 
I had a couple birthday projects for hubby to share but my computers are not cooperating. Took me about an hour just to get these two pix on (grrrr.....)
Thanks so much for stopping!


  1. So elegant, it's kind of black tie Christmas. I love the rounded corners on the card, the vellum and the gold!

  2. I actually love the inspiration photo, and I think your take on it is absolutely amazing, Geri! Wow, wow, wow, what a fabulous combination! LOVE the striped tag with the vellum insert and LOVE the snowflakes and border of holly. Love the rounded corners, too. I'd say you nailed this one, my friend!

  3. So elegant and beautiful :) love the dimension in the tag!

  4. And I like it I LOVE IT!!! FABULOUS Geri!!

  5. Loveeee!! Can you tell us what stamp set the holy leaves is from? Thanks much!

  6. That's HOLLY LEAVES!! darn fingers. Lol

    1. Yep…that's a 15$ set from Papertrey called Holly Jolly! There's a little set of dies that go with it, too! Glad you liked it, Erika!!!
      (sentiment is from a great set from Technique Tuesday)

  7. I would have found that tricky too but this is perfect! Love the frame and the holly border. Just a joy all around. Hugs!

  8. Gorgeous!! That sentiment works perfectly with the boldly striped tag. And I love the accents in kraft and pearl.

  9. This is a really lovely Christmas card, Geri, love how you've made the tag.
