The Project Bin and CardMaker Magazine Christmas Blog Hop

Happy hello, to all my friends and visitors!

Today is a special day!
We at The Project Bin are joining with CardMaker Magazine
for a fun Christmas Themed Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Gaylynn Martling's Blog!

Since this is such a special occasion, I wanted to create a special card. 
I began with my favorite Christmas stamp set from The Project Bin.
That is the Luke 2 Stamp Set.

For's what Christmas is truly all about... 
celebrating the birth of Jesus! :o)

So here's the fun ornament card I came up with:

Here's a closer look at the wonderful Scripture verse stamped out. 
These stamps are always so crisp and clear!

I made some little poinsettias to frame around the bottom.

Then I added another little poinsettia and a ribbon bow at the top.

Here's a final look at the finished card:

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - 
Dies: Tim Holtz - Mini Poinsettia, Your Nest Die - Pine Bough,
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Scalloped Circles (LG), WRMK - Nesting Circles;
Cricut Cartridge: Winter Wonderland;

How pretty! The font the sentiment is done in is lovely and all those pretty poinsettias really dress this pretty card up even more. Festive and classy. hugs!

This is SO pretty, Nancy. It's always a treat to see some non-traditional colors (like this) used on Christmas projects. It's lovely! The scripture is also a lovely touch and really looks fabulous in the center. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and play along in our challenge. I appreciate it so much, and hope that you will join us again soon.
