For my project for today, I created a sweet holiday card using the Mulberry Woods, Christmas Wishes set. I stamped the image off to the right for my card layout (which I just kind of came up with myself!) with Memento Tuxedo Black using the gridline acrylic 3x4 block. Those are great for lining up items and making sure things are straight, especially type! I colored them in using my Spectrum Noir markers (blender, BT1, BT2, EB1, EB2, EB5, CG1, CG2, DG2, CT2, TN2, TN7, TN8, DR4, DR5).

After I colored them in, I ran the whole piece through my Cuttlebug using the snowflake pattern of the Christmas Elegance embossing folder. After that, I rounded the two corner and applied some small little rhinestones on top of where the dots of snow are that are in the stamp. I thought it added a lot of fun sparkle to this card! 

The sentiment is also from the Mulberry Woods, Christmas Wishes set. I just stamped that on the same color cardstock as I used for the base, and simply diecut out a circle. I just centered the type within the shape. I added a bow with a glue dot and stuck the circle on with a pop dot. 

Hope you enjoyed the card I have made. Please visit the rest of the designers who created something special for today.
