Christmas with a Button

Turning a New Leaf...there aren't enough words to express how I feel about this set from PTI. It's TOTALLY AWESOME! But even using all caps doesn't do justice to my feelings. Here's another Christmas card I made with it. Over the next few days, I'll post some non-Christmas cards that use it. Good golly, this set is PERFECT for clean and simple cards.

At first, I tried burgundy and then green strips under the border punch (with matching ribbon in the button). Both colors looked so heavy and unbalanced the card. By putting the white cardstock behind the white and keeping the ribbon white as well, the whole card seems brighter and happier.

I hope all my American readers are enjoying the long holiday weekend! We sure are.

stamps: PTI Signature Christmas, Turning a New Leaf
ink: VersaColor burgundy, evergreen
paper: PTI white
accessories: button (PTI), ribbon, Martha Stewart border punch
