Sweet Christmas Wishes

Good Morning!  I am so excited about a new product that Sweet n Sassy Stamps has in the store.  Have you ever heard of Echo Park papers?  I hadn't before Korin added them to the store.  They are simply gorgeous!!  The store is currently featuring 6x6 sampler packs of these rich two-sided papers.  You can find them here.

So my card for today is all decked out in two of these papers from the Merry Christmas pack.  Also featured is Cup of Cocoa, the stamp set that released the first of this month.

One side of this paper is the super sweet candy cane stripe.  The other side is a beautiful holly berry pattern that you can see a little of on the vertical stripe behind the focal point.  I did use the sketch from Card Patterns (sketch #91) to create this card.  It was perfect for the Cocoa image.

My oldest son is always fussing at me that I never do anything with the insides of cards, so to appease him, I decorated the inside with a simple sentiment that is included in the Cup of Cocoa set.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red, Whisper White (SU!)
Paper:  Merry Christmas (Echo Park)
Copics:  G28, RV000, RV10, RV29, W-3, YG67
Prismacolor Marker:  Cherry
Tools:  Cricut/SCAL, SVG cut (09 Kut Ups), Apron Lace border punch (Fiskars)
Embellishments:  green satin ribbon (Offray), rhinestone (Recollections), Aqua Stickles

I hope you enjoy my card.  I had a lot fun making it to share with you.  I will not be posting on Thursday so I wish to take this time to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Even in these hard times we still have much to be thankful for.
