Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Christmas for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a theme challenge. 

Here is what I created for it using the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set.

My card base is Balmy Blue Card Stock. I cut a mat of Night of Navy and a strip of Feels Like Frost. I adhered them to a piece of Neenah Bright White card stock and wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon around the seam and adhered it to back with tape.

The snowflake is die cut with the Christmas Layers Dies out of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper. I adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and cut out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. I adhered that to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish off the front, I added four Blue Adhesive Backed Gems and called it done!

The inside is pretty straight forward...a sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, along with the tree image from said set. The tree is stamped in Balmy Blue ink and the sentiment in Night of Navy.

Of course, as Mary D. says, "No nekkid envelopes" so mine got a tree on the front and DSP on the flap.

I'm entering my card in the Stamping Pals #9 Christmas Challenge.
