Here's a look at my holiday card...
This young girl just reminded me of someone on her way home to family and friends with her packages and wreath. I've colored up the digi with my Stamp 'n Up chalks. I wanted to give the card an aged and vintage feel, so I've again inked everything around the edges with a brown ink. I've added some laser cut snowflakes which I've spread some Diamond Stickles on to give them some shimmer. I've also used some Christmas die cuts that I purchased and was hoarding in my craft room! The finishing touch was to add some Ric rack type ribbon and a bow with a button....I was hoping this would give the card that little bit of coziness that would make it feel like home. I loved the die cut sentiment "At Christmas, all roads lead home"! And isn't that so true in the spiritual realm as well...Christmas should get us thinking about our Heavenly Father...the sacrifice He chose to make for us...and even that Heavenly home that awaits for us when our time will come to leave this world.
And now, I can hardly wait to read about some of the Christmas traditions you have...and to see where your creativity with them will lead in your card making! Be sure to link up with us at Twist of Faith this week...and don't forget to check out the other DT creations and their Christmas traditions.
Until next time...
