Vintage Christmas card

No Cricut on this card - gasp!!  I hardly ever make a card without my Cricut, so I was kinda surprised myself.  I have a 6x6 paper pad (My Minds Eye - Holly Jolly) with this Santa page in it and thought it would make a great card!

The banners I cut using the Lacy Banners metal dies.  I used patterned papers from the same 6x6 pad so they would all coordinate, then attached the banners with Red jute string.

I inked the edges of everything with Cocoa ink from Close To My Heart, then went over it again with Distressed Walnut ink.  The stamped sentiment is from the new Joy To The World stamp set.

I hope you are all having a happy December and that your Christmas shopping and prep are going well.  What a busy and wonderful time of year!  In John 16:33, the Lord admonished us to "Be of good cheer: I have overcome the world."    Life is good.  :)

  7. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
