A KISS of Inspiration Day 5: God Jul!

Hi All and a big Norwegian "Merry Christmas!" Welcome to Day 5 of the Kraft-y Hearts Christmas Kiss Blog Share. Today's project has a bit of a Nordic overtone, so I couldn't resist a little "God Jul!" Now on with the show.....

The inspiration for today's card comes from sketch 25 on page 45 of Make It From Your Heart, vol.1 and the Snowhaven Cardmaking Workshop On The Go stamp set. Let's take a look:

I love Kraft and Red together, so this card is made from Kraft Cardstock and layered with White Daisy Cardstock and patterned paper from the Snowhaven paper pack. The sentiment is stamped on White Daisy Cardstock in Slate Exclusive Ink. To add a little color and interest to the sentiment, I stamped snowflakes from the stamp set in second generation Slate and Cranberry Exclusive Inks using the "stamping off" method. (You stamp the first impression on a scrap piece of cardstock and the second impression on your project so that you have a lighter shade of ink. You could do a third stamping for an even lighter tone if you wanted.) I added Slate Diagonal Striped Ribbon and popped the sentiment up with dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I added Silver Sequins to the card for a little more flair.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

And here is the card once again:
