Doodle Noel

I really enjoyed making this card! I must tell you that it was inspired by a card I saw some time ago by one of my favorite designers, Taylor of Taylor's Expressions . My personal thanks to Taylor for the inspiration! Isn't she awesome?

The image is from Stampendous and is called Doodle Noel . It was stamped on white cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I embossed using JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder, then colored the letters with Tombow markers. The "O" ornament in Noel was paper pieced from the Basic Grey designer paper used in the background. Then I used Peeled Paint Distress Ink and my new Stampin' Up Sanded background stamp to overstamp the Noel panel.

The decorative panel on the left side is actually three different papers...red, blue, and Basic Grey designer paper. I used my corner rounder to punch all three into scallops that I could layer together.

The strip on the left side is a piece of green May Arts ribbon layered with a strip of Basic Grey designer paper. I used Red Geo Shapes Sparkler Stickers to embellish the ribbon strip as well as the "N" on the Noel.

This will definitely be one of my Christmas cards this year!

Thanks so much for stopping by.....more tomorrow!
