Merry Christmas from Gloria!

Merry Christmas Readers! I hope that you are blessed today with peace and joy, and friends and family. I am featuring a Christmas Card today, on this most special of days!

I love using chipboard layers with other embellishments. I find you can really load up a card this way! I love the beautiful, vintage vibe of this card. I makes me smile! I am digging into the NEW Graphic 45 Children's Hour paper, and my, it's beautiful! 

I used the Brick Wall 2 background for my card. I inked the brick wall sheet with red ink and then sponged on a bit of white. I wanted the card to convey the feeling of stockings hung by the chimney with care!

I also used one of the shapes from the Delicate Frames and Ornaments Shape Set (inked with gold ink), two large snowflakes from the Snowflake Shape Set (sprayed with white paint mist), and a bookplate from the Miniature Bookplates Shape Set (inked with gold ink) for embellishment. I tucked a doily from the Cardstock Doily Set - Intricates around the edges. I cut the doily in half and used both parts on the card.

As always, I decorated the inside of the card!

I had an extra snowflake, so I added it to the inside and then embellished it with part of a calendar image. I cut the image with a circle punch to make a "button" for the snowflake!

I hope you enjoyed this last Christmas card of the year!
