Simply Christmas & The Bread of Life

I made these Christmas cards for the October Papertrey Guest Stamper challenge to make a Clean and Simple Holiday card.

This card is simply a panel of card stock, a 2/3rd's panel of designer paper, a ribbon tied along the edge with the sentiment stamped directly on the cardstock - accented with one dew drop and corners rounded!

Stamps: Signature Christmas: PTI
Paper: White, Scarlet Jewel, Holiday Cheer: PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Dew drop, glue dot, Scarlet Jewell extra fine polka dot satin ribbon- PTI, corner rounder.

And here is a no layer card where I just stamped the damask and greeting right on the cardstock. I accented the damask with a few gems and outlined the card with a black Micron pen!

It would be easy to make lot's of these cards in no time at all!
Stamps: Damask Designs, Signature Christmas - PTI
Paper: New Leaf - PTI
Ink: Enchanted evening - PTI
Accessories: Rhinestones - PTI, corner rounder, black micron pen

I made this 6x6 page for Week 20 of the His Holy Name Challenges on Split Coast - God's attribute for this week was Bread of Life. I chose John 6:35 to illustrate this attribute that I printed on the computer and cut with the Labels Three Nestability. I used the MojoMonday sketch from last week. I liked the earthiness of the Cosmo Cricket papers and chipboard pieces and thought they accented the idea of Jesus being one of the basic things in life we need to survive.

Stamps: none
Paper: vintage cream, dark chocolate - PTI, DP - Cosmo Cricket Earth Love/reuse
Ink: none
Accessories: computer generated verse, oval punch, window frame punch - SU, cosmo cricket ready set chip/Earth love, Alpine ribbon - SU, Nestabilities Labels Three

Wow, Julia, these cards are fabulous! Love the damask one in particular. The enchanted evening on new leaf is spectacular and I love the line around, except for the sentiment! Sue (suen)
