Christmas Cross

Happy Thursday!! I'm excited to share this card with you today because it combines two images that I think are just fabulous!! The Ancient Tribal Cross by Holly Berry House is so much fun to paper piece! And easy too. I just stamped the image 2 times on black, and 2 times on the burgandy and green (Eskimo Kisses - Basicgrey) with Versamark. I then embossed them each with Detailed Black ep (Judikins). Each piece is layered with Scotch Dimensional tape.

The pine flourishes are from Inkadinkado's Winter Borders Clear Set. I love these borders!! Each one works beautifully with other images, yet they could stand on their own too with a simple sentiment!!

Finally, before I assembled the card, I scored the White base with my Scor-pal.

Oh, before I forget, the little sentiment is from an Impression Obsession set called Lighten Up Mouse, and the corners were punched with a Fiskars Corner punch.

Hope you're having a fabulous week!!
Thanks for dropping in!!
Happy Stamping!!
