November 2018 Blog Hop with Papertrey Ink

It's been a busy few days but I'm popping in to play along with the blog hop today. I didn't have much time but I got in the craft room for just a bit today to make my card. 

I kept the style clean and crisp as that's what the inspiration photo suggested to me. I love the bold combo of lots of white with red and a touch of blue. 

I used the following products from PTI: 
 Bitty Big Patterned paper in Pure Poppy, Bold Borders Yuletide Die, Sending Joy Stamp Set, Pure Poppy Ink. 
The blue ink is Lakehouse from WPlus 9. I needed a clean blue with no hint of green so this was selected after trying a few other inks. 

The Yuletide die is perfect for an elegant look, but I loved using it this time in a different way. Instead of a frame, I used it under my panel extending over it on the right side, giving me more room for the focal point and sentiments. I added a couple white die cut holly leaves and a tiny red bow.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I'm happy to have another card ready for mailing and it took effort to avoid sequins or other bling so it is flat for the post office. Having just mailed a bunch of cards I am sure I need this to become my habit!
