Blessings - The Craft's Meow


Hey, peeps!  I'm up on The Craft's Meow Blog today sharing a little Christmas inspiration using one of their new stamp sets!  This set, Christmas Blessings, is loaded with beautiful and faith-filled sentiments and three gorgeous distressed silhouette images.   


The retrosketches #89 inspired the layout of my card!


After choosing the Crate Paper Sleigh Ride papers, I die cut a stitched circle and doily for some layering.  I heat embossed both the angel and star images with white embossing powder, then sponged around them with Ranger Antique Linen Distress ink to make them more visible...but, still keeping the subtle look that they have.  The sentiment tag was inked up in gray and sewn down onto the front panel of the card.  Finally, a few sequins were sprinkled and some baker's twine was added to finish this card off! 


 Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
