Basic Grey Christmas Card

Dec 9, 2013 - Thank you!

Hi Bloggers -
Last night I was looking in my Basic Grey Box of items and I found a Christmas Card kit - did not even realize I had this - I purchased it last summer from an on-line store that is no longer in business. Anyway, here is my first card creation using the Basic Grey Aspen Frost Kit - I am liking this kit!

Basic Grey Aspen Frost Kit
Add striped strips that came with the kit on the side of the card
Added the 3 buttons that came with the kit
Put pop up tape behind the sentiment banner
Added a Metal Snowflake brad from my stash
Added Studio G Red Glitter Glue Bulbs to the sentiment
INSIDE card:
Making Memories Christmas stamp
Memento Black Ink
Scotties - sentiment stamp MFP
Red Micron Ink Pen  to color heart and write Love from
