Lost Lagoon Sleigh Bells Ring


Happy Wednesday, peeps! Can you handle another Christmas card?  The Paper Players got me on a roll, LOL!  I've got three challenges here to play with:



and Sandy's Stamp Ink Paper sketch and the Retro Rubber brad challenge

SIP Sketch Challenge 55 800RRCB 42

I started out with a retired SU set called Sleigh Bells Ring...it's from 2007!  My whole card is in shades of Lost Lagoon...here we go:


I had a couple of pieces of Vintage Christmas DSP from My Mind's Eye in the perfect shade, so I used them for my background; I stamped the image on Very Vanilla textured cardstock and trimmed it down.  I added a silver glimmer brad, some pretty Lost Lagoon ribbon and some Dazzling Diamonds snow!


The outside sentiment is from a new SU set called Oh What Fun, and although it's tough to see, there are sleigh bells stamped on the right side of the card front; they're from the same set.  The inside sentiment is from Sleigh Bells Ring, but I did add some holly in the corners, and that's also from Oh What Fun:


A fun mix of old and new!  Thanks for popping in today!


Just in case you thought maybe Cassidy grew out of her "lining things up" obsession, here you go:


These little magnastix make a perfect grid!  Enjoy your day!

LOL I am on a Christmas card roll too LeAnne, made two of them last night alone! Sadly I have Christmas carols stuck in my head, too :) Love your gorgeous creation! The monochromatic color and traditional images are so elegant, and the bit of glitter is just perfect.

Christmas cards are great all year round and this one helps me think of snow when it's pretty hot outside! Love the scene you made and using Lost Lagoon was a great choice! Thank you so much for playing along with Retro Rubber and hope you will be back in our gallery soon.
