Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

Today is a big day over at Purple Onion.  Michele is having a sale and it`s a good one so head on over and check it out.  The sale will start this Friday, November 29 and runs until December 10.  All stamps are 25% off plus there will be some additional Black Friday specials which will also be included in the 25% off sale.  These stamps will have an additional 25% off the sale price listed on the website.  The specials will run through to Cyber Monday (December 2).  I do love the Purple Onion stamps... deeply etched red rubber and they stamp perfectly the first time.  To celebrate the recent releases and this massive sale, there are daily posts by the design team showcasing the images so make a point to stop by the Purple Onion Blog and see what the team has come up with. 

This one is Jingle Bells designed by Stacey Yacula and the card was fairly quick to do up.  I used the Frostyville die and cut around the image, then used it on the green backing paper and placed the green one inside the cute edges of the image circle so I have a border.  Easy to do and I like the look.  And of course, you all know how much I love that Frantage... I wish I could buy that by the pailful because, like the little old lady on the Red Hot Sauce commercial, I use that **** on everything!

Stunning vintage style card and fabulous idea to use the die cut as a border - it looks wonderful. And of course the Frantage is gorgeous - I mostly need to buy lots because whenever I use it, it ends up *everywhere* - lol! I love it though :-)
