Deck the Halls

Happy Monday morning friends! I hope you had a good weekend. We had a great one...a couple of highlights were seeing "This is it" and my husband took the kids to the club to go swimming for a few hours saturday and they were just in heaven (and yes, it was great to have a few quiet hours on a saturday!). I had a bit of time to work on my stash of Holiday cards and wanted to share one of them with you today.

I used the Holiday Button Bits stamp set from PTI for the hanging ornaments. I have fallen hook line and sinker, in love with this set...so many great images to work with! I also used some great vintage buttons...I love that they have a little shimmer to them and look like fancy ornaments!
To start my card, I used a Spring Moss cardbase. I ran a strip of Ocean Tides cardstock through my fiskars border punch for a nice classy border. Next, I stamped Giga Guidelines with Ripe Avacado Ink onto Ripe Avacado paper. I attached that just above the Ocean Tides border and then tied a nice bow with some Ocean Tides ribbon. I am 100% the biggest fan of the Ocean Tides color...one of my all time favroite shades of blue/green!! I stamped my sentiment with Ripe Avacado and then moved onto the ornaments. I stamped my ornaments onto white cardstock with Ripe Avacado ink and then added Ocean Tides vintage buttons with mini glue dots.

I love the clean and simple classy look of this one...a good one to reproduce! Thanks a bunch for stopping by today! Make it a great one!!
