And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Christmas Peace, Love & Joy!

Hello friends!  My thoughts and prayers are for those along the coast and in Florida this morning.  Stay safe!

I keep plugging away at my Christmas cards for this year and Lisa's Ways to Use It Challenge has enabled me to complete another one.  This challenge was right up my alley…I love fancy folds and chose to make a Building Blocks Card, a fold I have never tried before.  (Click the link for the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.)

Creative Nugget:  After creating the base of the card, each panel was lined with  pink card stock and beautiful papers from the Christmas 2014 Collection by Our Daily Bread Designs.  The mailbox image from the Christmas Note stamp set was colored with Copic Markers, the sentiment from Joys of the Season was embossed, the Peace Border die cut added, and the card closed with some organdy ribbon.

The tree from the Joys of the Season stamp set was white embossed on two Neenah Kraft panels and the snow drifts were cut with a Leafy Edged Border Die. Other dies used include the Pierced Rectangles Dies, Pierced Circles Dies, the Alphabet Dies, and the Mini Bow Die.  A few gems colored with a Copic Marker and Wink of Stella were added for some sparkle and to finish the card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

WT604 - Fancy Folds
Word Art Wednesday Challenge Week 251 - Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge - P for Pretty in Pink
Crafting From the Heart #130 - Anything Goes
Love to Scrap Challenge #87 - Go Pink
Pile It On #118 - Sparkle

Thanks so much for stopping by…hope you've been inspired to try a fancy fold!
