Home Spun Christmas

 Home Spun Christmas Card 

For some reason I LOVE this card!!! 
Just the calmness of the muted colors, I guess.  
Jillian said it reminds her of Hot Chocolate!

This paper is from an old DCWV stack. I saw it and decided that this was my theme as I wanted to use the New Tim Holtz Fall Seasonal Ink in Gathered Twig ~ the 3 pack is still available on our site in limited quantities HERE!

So I used dark brown for the base, cut the brown/kraft gingham then a layer of the kraft and cream snowflake print.  I stamped the sentiment "Snowmen fall from Heaven .  . . unassembled" in Coffee Archival Ink, then distressed it with the Tim Holtz Fall Seasonal Ink in Gathered Twig on white card stock.

I also used white card stock, Gathered Twig to distress and Coffee Archival Ink, for the "Wishing you Snow many Blessings" sentiment.

 I then pulled our my kraft paper and used the new Type Star Font designed just for the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Star 25 Tool
Then Alphabet will fit perfectly in the center of the star and includes both upper and lower case letters,  numbers and some symbols in addition to 4 star shapes found HERE.
I used the JOY to make the banner above the "dirty" snowman!  I used Brown Sugar Divine Twine, inked with Gathered Twig to give it a more rustic look. and attached it with brads.
