Muse Christmas Visions

The countdown is REALLY ON!

For this week's card, I decided to try incorporating an elegant look in the easiest way possible.
I have a tower stack of patterned papers that were bought years ago, with the very best of intentions.  Time to have a look and see what I could come up with!
using my patterned paper as the background, I layered a die cut in white street scene that I partially cut onto the front, adhered vellum behind the window openings, glued to the patterned card front and tied an elegant, narrow gold edged ribbon.  (I had previously embossed the little trees with gold dots)  My sentiment is cut from watercolor card scraps and also with gold foil card, layered together.
I told you...simple!  I made a dozen of these...

I am offering 6 of these patterned paper card fronts (just the patterned paper) to anyone that might be interested in using this same background.  I will mail to you anywhere in the world.  The first 3 people to request will receive.

I hope that some of these elements inspire you to either look through your patterned papers and create a little scene, or, maybe the white/gold/grey colours speak to you?  Let's see what you can create!

Thanks for peeking in!  Chriss


  1. Beautiful card! I must try and use some of my paper up too! xxx

  2. Oh it's lovely Chriss! I hope you're having fun with your new supplies!

  3. This is great, Chriss. I'm definitely CASEing it.

  4. The grey, white and gold background DP is so elegant, Chriss ... that fresh white scene in the foreground is brilliant against it ... and I love that shiny sentiment! Hugs, Anita :)

  5. Great use of that old pp, and it looks wonderful with your perfect little scene!

  6. Thanks for another great Muse project! Very elegant.

  7. Fabulous card, Chriss. I have kind of lost the art of using my patterned papers, so it was nice to see yours used to such great effect. Thanks for the inspiration.
