I'm just totally in love with This &That Christmas collection. Really just love it. It's the perfect colors! I made a couple cards with the fun elements that go along with the patterned paper--chipboard, brads, letter stickers, stickers, journaling spots and so much more!



This second card is my favorite--not sure why. Maybe its' the fun candy cane striped ribbon! I used the Stripes patterned paper (the b side) which has the newpaper look. I adhered a journaling spot on top of that to the right of the card, then I tied some yummy ribbon around it into bows and glued some fun buttons to each. The chipboard accents go along perfectly with the collection--I added in the pendant words and also the sticker Santa with some foam adhesive.

Thanks so much for coming by my blog! Remember to leave me a comment for a chance to win a fantastic collection pack from Echo Park Paper Co.!
