Making the sentiment a focal point {DeNami Design}

Hello Friends~

I am back bringing you another card showcasing a newly released stamp from DeNami Design where I use the sentiment as a focal point.
I started this card by piecing together the patterned papers and adding to the Hunter Green card base.  I then wrapped the piece over the connection of the papers with white seam binding ribbon which I tied in a fussy bow and embellished with a bow made of raffia topped with a red button laced with red hemp twine. 

Next I die-cut a scallop oval shape on white cardstock. I stamped the Peace Hope and Joy sentiment in the center using Hunter Green Ink. I used a die-cut of Holly I had leftover from a previous project and added them to the lower right of the oval framed sentiment. You can add anything you may have in your supplies for an embellishing touch. Lastly, a trio of pearls was added to the upper right corner to complete this Christmas card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Be sure to check out the new release here.

I am also going to share at My Craft Spot - Sentiment as the focal point, Pause Dream Enjoy - Christmas

Thanks for stopping by!

Love that festive plaid, and the leaf-and-berry cluster, Tammy!

Hope you are well, and that your shoulder feels better by now. Life's been busier than ever here, really and truly, since the end of October. Waiting for some kind of new normal so I can develop a routine which includes crafting again. Ha. :/
