Hollyday Wish

A bit behind with my posts, so I hope you will forgive my multiple posts today.  This one is for the current challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This week we are trying a technique called Triple Time Stamping.  I have never heard of this technique before, and they kindly offered an outstanding video tutorial that includes precise measurements for creating the card.  I worked with images from Oxford Impressions.  The musical background was stamped with Old Paper Distress Ink.  The Holly leaves were stamped with Olive StazOn Ink and the berries were colored with a Fired Brick Distress Marker.  A bit of ribbon and some bits of red paper doily complete my card.  Thanks for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne

You did such a nice job with that stamping that I had to look twice to make sure it wasn't patterned paper :o) Really lovely card!! Thanks for joining us this week at 52CCT!

Yvonne - you're a born natural at triple time stamping! This card is amazing, what a charming old-fashioned feeling it has even with the more modern touches you added!
