Good morning sweet friends, we’re on a Christmas roll! Thanks so much for your encouraging words yesterday about conquering the Christmas rush to get cards done. I’m a hopeless “fly by the seat of your pants” planner at Christmas time, so what in the world will my family think when I’m ahead of the game this year? Will wonders ever cease? So today I’m popping in with a short post and a Christmas Card using JustRite Christmas Vintage Labels Seven.
I started out the a kraft card base and added a design paper panel matted with gold foil (Die Cuts With A View) and added May Arts Silk Ribbon across the bottom with a sash of velvet ribbon on top and the same velvet ribbon in the corner. Then I added Spellbinders Majestic Squares (stenciled with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink), then on top added Spellbinders Elegant Ovals in gold then on top added JustRite Vintage Labels Seven where I stamped the lovely holly motif and added a sentiment in the center. To finish I popped a bow on top and decorated the bow with Spellbinders Holly Twigs and Leaves, a Bazzill Button and three gold pearls. To finish up I painted my triple pearl pin with a red Spectrum Noir Marker for a pop of color.

Question Parking Lot:
Wow. Truly awesome!! Beautiful!! Magnificent!! Gorgeous!!
Would never have thought to use kraft paper but I really like it. Sometimes through people like you, Becca, we learn things that we never had an idea about. Truly magnificent!!!
WAUW sooooo awesome Becca. a wonderful creation from you once again hun.
Gorgeous card! Love your bow! Keep up the Christmas cards, they are a huge push for me to get started on mine!
Beautiful ….just my kind of card…..Q when you make your christmas cards are they all different?
Beautiful Christmas card Becca. Love the use of all your dies. Christine xx
HOW BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!:) Becca, you WILL ALWAYS AMAZE people!!! LOL Not because you’re ahead of the game–at least where you’re blog friends are concerned, it’s because of YOUR TALENT!!!! :D WE LOVE IT TOO!!! :D
Sorry, but I just don’t get it…. you have a beautiful deep rich looking card and then you plop that holly motif on that I just don’t think goes with your card at all !! But, that’s my opinion and usually rather then leave a negitive comment I would not say anything but this time I just couldn’t help myself !!
I love your cards Becca but this one…. not so much !!
your card is stunning.
This is gorgeous! I usually start my holiday card making around the first part of November. I keep promising myself I will start them earlier and then….ah well! I will try again this year!
Love the layers – the velvet ribbon edging and really love that bow – wow! It’s reather humid and wet here today – not really in the C Card making mood yet – but I like to get the designs I will do and the buy the kit required so when the weather turns cooler and the festive mood hits me everything is ready to get on with it – so probably Sept/Oct before the doing mode kicks in – thanks for sharing
Hi Becca, another stunner, wow you will amaze your family this year, what a Joy it would be to receive one of your cards at Christmas. I love how you have made the berry out of a button & beads.
Love & Hugs

Good evening Becca.
This is gorgeous and sumptuous but I think it would look even more beautiful if the holly was stamped in gold! It may of course be too much, and then I’ll think “Becca was right after all”!
Take care, thanks for the inspiration, I LOVE making Christmas cards.
God bless x
Hi. Beautiful and elegant card today Becca. I love the colours and the hints of gold are stunning. Xxx
That sure is a versatile stamp, Becca. I love how you put it with the craft paper. Very vintage-y. Thanks so much for the inspiration! 90 degrees outside and difficult to think about Christmas, but it will be here before we know it!
Wow Becca, that is not a card, it’s gift, a very gorgeous gift…wow. It is so elegant, and the colors are so very rich. You’ve done an amazing job…as usual.
Love this. Your color scheme is perfect as is all the other details of this beautiful card.
Gorgeous Layering of the dies, like the touch of foil in there!
This needs to be made into a picture to hang up each year! So beautiful!

Hi Becca. This is a beautiful Christmas card and I love the holly leaves and berries, they are wonderful : ) Take care.
Hi Becca, A beautiful card, as always, the colours are rich and decadent and the die-cuts and stamping are just stunning.
I spent all Saturday doing my front gardening, then yesterday, after Church, I did all the back gardening, garden looks wonderful but my back is complaining bitterly haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Beautiful card – can just see it on the mantelpiece of a great big fireplace with a roaring fire.
I love the colours, design and everything about this beautiful card Becca,
I’m on a roll as they say but it’s a backward roll as I’ve gone from today’s card backwards!
Maybe it’s to do with being left handed or something!
Love today’s card too, except for the holly but that’s only a personal opinion!
I would love to be able to make such a masterpiece !
Hi Becca, if you’re not confused after that last post from me you are a very clever lady! Wow ! On re- reading it I confused myself! Think I need another holiday!
Sending love and apologies,
This is so sweet and elegant! Happy Christmas in July!
