"Hold on to the Spirit of Christmas" layered Christmas card
Happy Friday, Crafters!  Kathy Jo here to share another  Christmas project.  Last week I shared a scrapbook page I made using Quietfire’s gorgeous stamp “Hold on to the Spirit of Christmas”.  I liked using the stamp so much that I decided to use it on a Christmas card this week.
Hold on to the Spirit of Christmas
The stamp is classic, timeless and versatile.  It could easily be used on a CAS or classy and elegant or shabby chic or clean and layered card.  Whichever style you choose, the stamped sentiment will definitely be the focal point of the Christmas card.  For this card I decided to go with layers and deep, vintage colors. 
Several gems were added to the layered paper, the ribbon and on the stamped sentiment itself.  The gems added the sparkle and shine usually seen at Christmas.  The layers were made using Spellbinders Elegant Ovals and Exquisite Labels Eleven.
I like the way the card turned out and I am very happy to finish another Christmas card.  Did you know that there are only 131 days until Christmas?  That may sound like a lot of time to you but it is not for me!  I always seem to be rushing the last few weeks before Christmas finishing craft projects.  This year I am trying hard to not do that- I will tell you how/if it works out!  If you want to get a head start on your Christmas crafts then now is a perfect time: Quietfire holiday stamps are on sale for 30% off!  Yay!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
