Christmas Joy

I hear on the Papertrey Forum that people are starting to receive their orders from the August release. I can't wait to see what everyone starts making!

This was the second card that I made for the release using the Rustic Branches stamp set. I started out making my patterned paper with no real plan. But as I created, it evolved into this card. I really like the dark chocolate color with pure poppy and jardin moss for Christmas cards.

I got a chance to stamp today so I'll have something new tomorrow, hopefully, if I get a chance to take photos. Have a great day!

Cardstock: vintage cream, dark chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: (hand stamped)
Ink: pure poppy, dark chocolate (Papertrey Ink), jardin moss (Palette)
Accents: pure poppy grosgrain ribbon (Papertrey Ink)
