Homespun Christmas

Hi friends, I made this card for the Bitten By the Bug challenge-Ribbon Frame-from JOTS cartridge. Not only do I have to learn to make great cards, I have to learn photography!!!
These pictures do not capture the homespun feel I created but I had fun making this.
For the berries, I made french knots with floss. I zigzag stitched around the outside in ivory thread and used ivory lace trim. The buttons are basic grey and attached with CTMH hemp in natural. The pp is K&Co. and DCWV and bazzill CS. The image is a re-purposed xmas card from last year from American Greeting that I received and saved. It really pretty IRL. It has glittery snow. Oh, and I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen. Thanks for looking! xoxo Kim


  1. Oh goody! I get to be first to comment on your lovely card. My first comment as a BBTB Design Team member! What super ideas you have on this card. I love the recycling of last year's Christmas card. Wondered where you got that great image. The french knots for the berries is a great idea too.

  2. Very interesting layout. I love to see what everyone does with their cards. I'm always looking for fresh ideas. Thanks for your inspiration.

  3. This is beautiful!! I just love the french knots for berries.

  4. Your whole card is great! I know what you mean about not capturing the beauty of the card in real life. I struggle with that, too! I have been saving my Christmas cards to repurpose them and forgot about that. Thanks for reminding me! Come on over and visit my blog to see my entry for this challenge. Hope to see you soon!
