Glory of Christmas – Challenge #51 Dots and Stripes

Sidebarglorykleiner

For the next two weeks, the challenge at Glory of Christmas is Dots and Stripes. I decided on a window themed card. I keep the design fairly simple. I used a stamp from Delicious Doodles called A Robin’s Christmas. I coloured the Christmas ornaments red, but left the rest of the image black and white. I framed the image with the small Memory Box – Madison Window Die. For my Dots and Stripes, I embossed the background wall using two folders: small dot pattern and a stripe pattern. I used three stickers from Kaisercraft to finish off the card.
