New year, New challenges....

A fresh new year of Christmas cards for the coming December. Personally I love creating Christmas cards all year as some of you know. I have a fun list of new challenges for the Dirty Dozen Christmas challenges so hope you will join us in the fun. January challenge is all about New...with the Old. That's right grab and dust off some of your "older" stuff and make it new again. Be sure to share all your creations with us in the forum HERE.
I have a few older things on this card. First is the Spellbinders Grand Scallop Square die that is my base cut in Classic Kraft card stock. When I first ordered these I used them a lot and then they have sat here for awhile. They make for awesome larger 5x5 base cards. My sentiment is from Country Time Christmas that is stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink again onto Classic Kraft card stock. I die cut the sentiment panel using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty Eight die popped up on dimensionals. The designer paper is from Echo Park Keepin Cozy paper pack layered onto Color Made Easy True Blue card stock.
Wrapped some of the beautiful cream lace trim around the bottom with a Color Made Easy True Blue Delft ribbon bow. Another oldie but goodie I used were these cool Candi dots, they look like enamel dots in a way and the shimmer on them is awesome.
Here is a side view so you can see another of my older items the gel suduko pen. I have a gold shimmer all around the edges of whatever I could ink with the pen. ha ha  In real life the shimmer is rather elegant touches. Easy Peasy flat rate mailer for the most part, well other than the extra postage for larger size. But hey it is some what flat. ha ha!
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check back later today as a Blog Hop is coming of new goodies from Your Next Stamp Creations. Have a wonderful New Year DAY!

Beautiful, Stacy! The blue on kraft is a great looking combo. Love that curved border and the sentiment die cut as well. Your oldies don't seem too old to me, but that's because I'm an oldie, myself, tee hee! Happy new year!
