Blue and Green Christmas, MM267

Hi everyone! The countdown to Christmas clock is ticking... I am going to try to finish making my Christmas cards this week as I will be doing some traveling later in the month. At the start of the season I always say to myself that I will try to use as many of my holiday stamp sets possible at least once, but this set has turned out to be a favorite and I've used it several times. I love the classic design of the ornaments.

My card was inspired by this gorgeous color combo from Colleen at Merry Monday. I love turquoise and lime together, maybe my favorite combo ever! 

I was really pleased how well the teal blue ink, glitter paper and sequins in my card went together - a perfect match though from three different manufacturers.

I stamped another ornament in a lighter shade of blue and added a sentiment to finish off my card inside. While I was at it, I made four of these! I'm getting closer to my Christmas card goal!

Stamp Sets: Holiday Ornaments, Christmas Trimmings (Hero Arts)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Smooth Watercolor Card Stock (Bristol)
Patterned Paper: Kitten Smitten (Doodlebug)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Tumbled Glass Distress Ink (Ranger), High Dive (Simon Says Stamp), Green Apple, Soft Pool (Hero Arts)
Tools: Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments Dies, Christmas Trimmings Dies (Hero Arts), Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies (My Favorite Things)
Accessories: Teal Glitter Paper (Recollections), Teal Adhesive Sequins (Jillibean Soup)

Thanks for stopping by!
