Jingle Belles Rock #31 - Blue Christmas

This week's challenge over at Jingle Belles Rock is Blue Christmas: make a Christmas card where the main color is blue.

Here's my card:

I remembered this piece of blue paper from one of my Basic Grey Figgy Pudding 12x12 packs. Blue - check. I then went to rummage through my Christmas drawer for an appropriate image and/or sentiment, and I grabbed this Hero Arts wreath. I'm pretty sure I've used it on a Jingle Belles card in the past, but people, it's been 31 weeks! There's gonna be some repetition! :)

The polka-dotted strip is the reverse of the blue paper, and the sentiment is from an SU set I had out for a possible Stamp Camp project (we won't be using the Christmas sentiment next weekend.)

And yeah, I know, I didn't get a good impression with the stamped image, but I tried again and missed again, so I just called it DONE and added a slew of pearls (some blue!) in an attempt to distract you.

That's it! Now get yourself over to Jingle Belles Rock - Blue Christmas and play. There's still time!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That is really beautiful! I love that wreath (I think I need it) and that paper has such an beautiful, soft look to it. A perfect compliment to the wreath and with the pearls, too?! Really stunning.

  2. Beautiful! I love the pearls. I have resisted that HA stamp, but it is so versatile. Gorgeous card, L!

  3. what's wrong with REPEATS?!??! i have like 3 xmas dies and i think i've used them at least half a dozen times each ALREADY! and yet i am unrepentant... NAY i am *PROUD*... afterall, that's why i bought them, cause i LIKE them!!! :) :) :)

    you keep rockin' the wreath stamp, missus, and i'll keep ♥LOVING♥ it!!! also i think the "imperfection" of the stamped image... which i had NOT noticed until you pointed it out... so clearly the pearl are WORKING!!!!!!!) :) ...pairs reallllllllly well with the distressy elements of the BG paper! so there! GORGEOUSNESS, for sure, i ♥LOVE♥ this!

  4. I have that wreath and have never inked it up ... but certainly love what you've done with it too ... I thought the double stamping was intentional ... such a cool effect ... and those pearls are the perfect accent ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun.
