Merry Monday on Wednesday & CCCB Christmas!


Good morning!
I made a card yesterday for the Merry Monday challenge #118 blog (another Christmas card in the stash-yay!) and will also be submitting to the City Crafter Challenge Blog where Christmas in July is the theme.
I have a little stash of buttons, so selecting the button for my flower center was the most difficult decision  in creating this card!  
I have been organizing and tidying in the craft room, just 15 minutes a day, and came across a little pile of these Just Rite quilted circles that I had paper pieced.  With my Memory Box stem, Straight Stalks, I decided to layer the small version onto the larger version for my flower stem and have the quilted circle as my flower.  I added this ruby looking glass button with a teeny strand of silk ribbon threaded thru the center.  Easy Peasy.  This simple Christmas card style is not my usual fashion.  I usually have layers and layers, but I do like how this came out.  A sentiment from PTI is a good pairing for this homespun crafty card and I adhered with a little black stitching and left the front bits a little long for another little detail.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Have a great day!
Chriss

  6. This is really pretty, Chriss! It has lots of texture and dimension without all the layering! I think it should be framed!! Hugs, Darnell
