I was inspired by some clean and simple cards that my Mom had recently made for a church Christmas bazaar. I loved the dark kraft paper that she had used, and I "borrowed" the green gingham ribbon from her stamping studio. Hee hee! When I was at a local crafting store yesterday, I found a package of the dark kraft cardstock just like the one Mom had used, so I had to snatch that up.
For these two cards, I stamped the pinecones from Cornish Heritage Farms' Evergreen Holiday stamp set in the middle of the card. Then I placed the "peace" sentiment directly below the pinecones and stamped it with the same Walnut Stain distress ink. I used the green ribbon on the first card, and then I wanted to see how it would look with the wider brown gingham ribbon.
Which one do you think looks better? :-)
Oh...... and I have a little bit of news to share with y'all. I was asked to join the Cornish Heritage Farms design team!!!!! I'm so excited and I'm just walking around on Cloud Nine! I can't wait to get started!
