Another non-traditional Christmas card!

This time I wanted not only the color but the image to be non-traditional: so I chose blue and a heart!

The heart wreath was made using a McGill pine branch hand punch and two different shades of blue paper (in this case I cheated and used QuicKutz adhesive papers).  I added some turquoise colored faux gems (Stampendous Dot Sparklers) and an ivory satin bow (Anna Griffin) to complete the wreath. The text is a glittered rub-on from K&Company/E.K. Success.  The wreath is set on an ivory piece of paer, mounted on a ligt blue paper and then on an ivory card.

Merry Christmas!


  1. John, that is so terribly clever! Love the heart made with that fern punch! Beautiful card!

  2. John, maybe not traditional, but it's funny. I was just thinking this evening how I've always loved the blue/white combination at Christmas. This card is beautiful! Happy New Year to you and yours!
