Nontraditional Christmas Card

Thank you for your patience with my blog while I was out of town. My Dad has a long road ahead of him but he seems to have taken a turn for the better and know we'll just continue to pray that he keeps making progress. Thank you for the kind wishes and all the prayers.

On to is a Christmas card I made today, my first project back in my stamping room...I had taken a few stamping supplies with me and managed to make some cute one layer cards for my Dad, family members, and his nursing staff in the ICU, but I'll share those at a later date. This card is simple but has some pretty neat little touches to it that I think help make it special.

My card base is Very Vanilla scored at the top, followed by a layer of Old Olive. Another piece of Kraft cardstock was crumpled tightly then flattened back out and adhered over the Old Olive to add texture to the card. My sentiment from Many Merry Messages was stamped in Old Olive Ink on Very Vanilla. The edges were given a distressed look with my Soft Suede Stampin' Pad and a sponge. The Ribbon is actually the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, just turned to the plain side. I used SNAIL adhesive to form my bow and then used a bit of hemp twine as an accent.

I'd love to know what you think of this card...its a bit untraditional for a Christmas card but I love the way it turned out.

Happy Wednesday everyone, its good to be back home!
