11 Weeks Until Christmas

This card is inspired by a couple of cards a saw online recently. I am drawn to cards that are simple yet beautiful. You will find them here and here. Fortunately I pinned them to Pinterest or I might not have been able to find them later to give credit for the inspiration.

The central image/sentiment is Christmas/Holiday Sentiments from Digistamps4Joy. Each month when you enter a project into the challenge with that month's image you are eligible to receive next months image for free.

Christmas/Holiday Sentiments was printed on Georgia Pacific white cardstock. The pre-cut and scored card base is 6.5" high and 5" wide. The paper tape was found at a Dollar Tree store after reading someone's post on Facebook (BTW, besides the holiday tape, they carry some decorative glitter tape and some non-holiday tapes; none say "acid free" but I do not find "acid free" on any rolls of washi tape I have). The "Merry Christmas" stamp is from Close To My Heart My Acrylix® Holiday Tags stamp set (D1560) and was stamped with Ponderosa Pine Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2145).

Edited to add: I forgot to mention that I inked the edges of the digistamp with a Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2105).

I hope to link my card to the Digistamps4Joy Monthly Christmas Challenge {October 2014} and  Decosse's Dynamite Doodles 12 Months of Christmas Card Link Up.
