Watercolor Christmas... Season of Cheer

Here is a fun Christmas card for you today :).

And to think...  I wasn't even that excited about this color combination when I first saw it in the Holiday Catalog!  Well, that was back in July (maybe it had something to do with being in Thailand and not quite ready to think about Christmas yet??),  but things sure have changed!

I am now loving this color combo of Basic Black, Whisper White and Old Olive!!  And...  I think this card is just stunning!  Read on to learn all about it....

We start our card with a Basic Black Card Base.  Next, we added two pieces of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper to our card, put a strip of Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon between the two pieces and then adhered them to our card.

Aren't the patterns in that Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper so bold and fun??  I just love them now!!

Next, we stamped "Season of Cheer" in Basic Black ink using the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set.

We die-cut this piece with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then layered it on top of a scallop square die-cut using the Layering Square Framelits.  Then, we added Dimensionals to the back of our sentiment and popped it on our card.

Finally, we added 2 Basic Black Rhinestones to our sentiment for a fun, finishing touch.
