"Believe" - A Stamper's Dream Farewell Blog Hop

Good morning everyone! Welcome to your final stop for the Stamper's Dream & Friends Blog Hop!

Here is my project for today. I made this card using the JustRite Christmas Trimmings stamp set. I love all the options you are given to decorate your Christmas cards. I decided to use the wreath stamp and the sentiment "Believe". The wreath was colored with my Copic markers. I used Tsukineko's Rich Cocoa to stamp the images. The paper collection I used was from my stash, MME Festive & Frost. All the papers were edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

The wreath image was popped up on dimensional foam dots. The die I used as the base was Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two. The little pieces that came off the die after it was cut was used as little accents above and below the wreath. Brown seam binding from my stash was my ribbon of choice. It made my card look like a Christmas present.

To finish the inside of the card, I just punched a strip of scrap paper with a scallop border punch. So there is my card for the hop. All the links to the products that are still available at Stamper's Dream will be posted below.

*Now here is a little message from Michelle of Stamper's Dream:

It is with a heavy heart that I announce I've decided to close Stamper's Dream ! After many tears, and much prayer I just know it's the right thing for me. I really feel the need to reclaim my life and spend more time with family and friends. My grandchildren are growing up so quickly! And let's face it...no one can do it all! Not forever, anyway.
