Bells & Boughs

I didn't plan on purchasing this stamp set Bells & Boughs but when I received the Demonstrator magazine Stampin' Success and saw a Christmas banner I just had to order it. Which reminds me I need to take a picture of it so I can show it to you. Anyway since I purchased the stamp set for the banner I figured I might as well use it to make Christmas cards too.

So this is a card that we made at my last card class. To be honest I kept wanting to make more vintage looking cards with this set. Maybe its because so many of the samples I have seen with this set are more vintage looking, or maybe because that is the craze these days but when it came down to it I didn't have the supplies for my all of my class attendees to make a more vintage card. I did wait until the night before the class to create the last couple cards and cut up all the materials so I needed to go with what I had on hand. So since I had a lot of old olive card stock and that beautiful satin old olive ribbon, I used those as my starting point. So this is what I came up with, not to shabby for 10:30 PM on a Friday night.

Well, now I need to go and take a picture of the banner I made. I already took a couple pictures of some other cards so I will definitely be blogging again very soon.
