I decided to go more green and less white, with a combo of Old Olive & Confetti White, which is a much creamier white.
I used a similar layout for my anniversary card last week, and I like the way it looks. The point in the front allows the patterned paper to show whether opened or shut.
I embossed the cardfront with Lacy Brocade, and created a Hardwood panel with Old Olive ink and some sponging. Atop that, the sentiment Heart of Christmas is heat embossed white on Olive with a little more sponging. A little banner of burlap and three tiny bells strung on linen thread fancy it up some. Finally, rhinestones anchor the sentiment panel - I colored them with my Blendabilities.
Go check out all the beautiful cards at Merry Monday! BTW, I LOVE this inspiration photo. Just gorgeous!
