JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #4

Good morning everyone.  Welcome to Week #4 of the JustRite 12 Weeks Of Christmas Blog Hop.  I hope you have been enjoying these weekly hops.  The inspiration has been amazing!!  Today will be no different.

Here are the details:
Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #4! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps! This week, it’s the Spellbinders design team! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

My card today uses 2 of the JustRite stamp sets.  The snowflake & border comes from the "Merry Little Christmas" set, stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves and Memento Cottage Ivy, diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles & Classic Scallop Circles.  I added some Eucalyptus Stickles and Christmas Red Stickles to the snowflake to make it pop.  The sentiment "Winter Wonder" comes from the "Nature Nested Sentiments" set, stamped with Memento Cottage Ivy and diecut with Spellbinders Labels Trio.

The icicles border below the red strip was created with the Martha Stewart Icicles border punch.  I added several layers of clear embossing powder to make it look like it was "melting".  The white layer above the red strip was embossed with Cuttlebug Snow Dots embossing folder.

Below are photos of the complete stamp sets used to make my card.

Here is a list of designers that will be participating in the hop today.  Be sure to check them out - You will be inspired!!!
