Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! I've popped in this morning to share my DT inspiration project for this week's Inky Impressions Challenge, IIC #138 - Christmas Ornaments. Come play with us! We want to see your Christmas decorations or ornaments - your project can have Christmas decorations or ornaments on it or you can make a Christmas decoration or ornament. The random winner will receive 4 digis from the Inky store!

I used the super versatile Merry Christmas String Light Sentiment digi for this relatively CAS card which was easy and fun! The focal image is layered on black and then gold foil cardstock, as is the red background.

I adhered some twine and then paper pieced the bulbs with dimensional foam pads. That's it! ;)

The inside sentiment is computer-generated.

I'd love to enter my 3-D string of Christmas lights card into the following challenges:


I hope you've been inspired to create something fun for our Christmas decorations challenge! To get your mojo going, be sure to check out the selection of stamps and other crafting goodies in the Inky Impressions store! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
