Paper Sweeties 25 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Sunday, December 17, 2017

Evening, y'all!  Just stopping back in to share a sweet, little, paper-pieced creation in honor of the 25 Days of Christmas Blog Hop going on, over at Paper Sweeties, all month long.
I started this card by trimming the left side of a piece of vintage, Christmas, newspaper print with a wide strip of pink, diamond, patterned paper and anchoring them both, to the white, cardstock, card face, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching.
I then topped a For You Sweet Cuts, die-cut, from a gray, polka dot, patterned paper, tag with a darling, paper-pieced, Somewhere Over the Rainbow house, which was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on white cardstock and popped up with foam tape.  A little Glossy Accents gives just the right amount of shine to the paper-pieced windows; and a bit of stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a white, cardstock die cut, Snow Friends holly is the home's crown and glory.  The holly, too, was paper-pieced and given a touch of shine with Dazzling Diamonds.
The tag itself was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "A Little Dash of Winter Cheer", from Warm Winter Wishes, sentiment; backed with a snippet of cheesecloth; and popped up, with foam tape, in the center of the card face.
A trio of Snow Friends, paper-pieced, on white, cardstock die cuts, snowflakes and scrumptious, Frosting seam binding ribbon, double bow, embellished with a length of white lace and an ivory button, laced with white string, tied in a bow, complete the look.
Be sure to pop in to see how the team has been and continues to be inspired from December 1st through Christmas Day.  Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Merry Christmas, Paper Sweeties fans!
