Waltzingmouse Stamps November Blog Waltz

Hello friends!

I am so excited to be participating in my very first Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz!  The theme for this waltz is Christmas projects. Using the new Nordic Winter, I came up with this:

Nordic Christmas

I stamped images from Nordic Winter in Riding Hood Red and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!). I matted the stamped panel on dark brown cardstock that I punched with a scallop border punch.  Before adhering to the card base, I tied a bit of brown twill ribbon around the matted panel and topped it with a cream button threaded with twine that I tied it into a bow.

This card seriously only took like 20 minutes to put together start to finish which is always a good thing when the days are getting shorter and shorter and daylight is a precious commodity! Hope you enjoy my waltz card! Thanks for stopping by!

  22. You shouldn't have said this was a quick card to make because it sure doesn't look like it! What a beautiful pattern you stamped to create a wonderful knitted scene. The brown and red look so nice together and the scalloped border was the perfect touch.
