Cards in Envy - The Spirit of Christmas

Hello friends! There's a new card challenge over at Cards in Envy. The theme is The Spirit of Christmas. Create any style Christmas card and any color theme.

I decided to create a religious Christmas card using an older Photoplay 6x6 paper pad and this beautiful sentiment stamp from Honey Bee stamps. I just love the deep red, gray and gold together.

Sentiment stamp - Honey Bee Stamps
Circle dies - Lil Inker Designs and Spellbinders
Banner die - American Crafts
Enamel dots - Photoplay
Ink - Lawn Fawn
Embossing powder - Love From Lizi
Ribbon - unknown

Thanks for visiting my blog today!


  1. Oh Kristie! This is a beautiful card. I, too, love the deep rich colors and the nod to the traditional spirit of Christmas. The sentiment is gorgeous. You have some of the best sentiments in your stash! Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Jeanne! I just recently purchased this sentiment stamp from Honey Bee Stamps. I just love it and will be using it often for my Christmas cards. :)

  2. Such a beautiful, rich color palette on this card. I love the gold accents on the ribbon and sentiment!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! It's always fun to add some lovely gold to a Christmas card. :)

  3. What a wonderful Christmas card. I was wondering where do you buy your ATG tape from? I am having a hard time finding someone in Australia who sells in bulk to try and bring down the price.

    1. Thank you! I buy my ATG refills from Tape Jungle online. I purchase it by the case. (144 rolls) I live in the US. I'm not sure if they ship internationally.
