I have made two cards, made with the Joy Clair Christmas Border set.  

Here is how I made my cards:

1.  A2 card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
2.  I cut some card stock larger than the base of the card, 
3.  I used some scotch low tack tape and a sheet of writing paper (I saw this done on youtube), and lined up where I wanted to lay my tape, I put the tape on my card stock every second line,

4.  I then used two distress ink colors and inked in between the tape,

5.  I used my Misti to line up the sentiment on the cardstock,
6.  I stamped my piece, and added this to the front base of the card,
7.  I finished off the card by adding some gold sequins trim and twine.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop with the other design team members and please come back again soon!
