Playing with papers....

Hey there .... is everyone having a wonderful week? I hope so!

I have been playing just a bit as I have been trying to get some things accomplished around the house, not nearly as much fun as crafting.

Have you been to Doodle Pantry to check out this month's latest releases
if not please do as you will love Laurie's new sets and until 
Sept 9th you will find a 35% off sale!  

This is an unusual card size for me but I have had these textured gate fold long cards by DCWV
 for quite a while and decided they would work wonderfully with my idea. 
I am using the new Holiday Joy Digi paper pack  along with a sentiment from Holly Stag. 
I printed the papers and punched a 3/4 inch square which I layered on a black and red square and layered on a piece of black card stock. 
The sentiment was cut with a oval die and layered on a scalloped one. 
Add a gold bow and ribbon and you have a fabulous card for your Christmas stash.

I simply punched a larger square which I cut on the diagonal and placed in each corner of the inside.

I hope you like my paper rich card and will give it a try. 

Don't forget to check out all of the many specials now going on at Doodle Pantry.

Happy Day!
