Card #9–OWH Holiday Card Blog Hop

 

For World Cardmaking Day I’m participating in the Holiday Card Blog Hop with Operation Write Home.  If you’ve never heard of this organization I encourage you to click above and see what it’s all about.

A clean and simple, monochromatic card for Christmas, since that seems to be my favorite style.

I stamped it twice and cut out the sentiment, putting it up on pop dots.  I like the added contrast.

Now I just need to get to work and get a bunch more made and mailed before the October 31 deadline for Christmas cards!

Supplies used for card:  All Stampin’ Up! products – stamp from Holiday Best set; white cardstock; Real Red striped grosgrain ribbon, 1-1/4”

I'm a fan of big bows; and this is a beaut! Also love the idea of restamping and popping up the sentiment. I know I have stamps I could do this with -- thanks for the idea!
