Best Wishes For an Old Fashioned Christmas

Today's card was inspired by the Sketch Challege at Splitcoaststampers yesterday. I can't believe that I am making another Christmas card. I am going to have enough cards for the next 2 Christmases.

My focal image is from the Old Fashioned Christmas set by JustRite Stampers. This set comes with designer borders and centers however I chose to only use the center for this card. I stamped the image on Neenah white cardstock and colored it with my Copic Markers.

To make my "wreath" around the outer edge, I masked my focal image and then used the Rubberstamp Tapestry Gingerbread Wreath peg stamps to stamp my wreath. Then I diecut the image with Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities. The two mats were diecut using Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circle Nestabilities.

I added white glitter ribbon around the outer edge of the designer paper and added red polka dot ribbon along the bottom edge of the card.
