My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party- Christmas Chalkboard

Hello, my sweet friends! Happy Thursday and welcome to Day 4 of the My Craft Spot stamp release party! :o)

Today we are featuring the NEW Christmas Chalkboard stamp set! I love this chalkboard style and the sentiments are spectacular! :o) (All of the new stamps and SVG files will be available for purchase on Saturday!)

This card was created for an upcoming I Feel the Love Project Christmas collection, where we will be delivering Christmas cheer to children (and their parents) who are spending the holiday in the hospital.
I designed this to suit both the child and parent, with touches of elegance combined with the magic of Santa. The lovely sentiment inspired me to create a happy scene for them to look at, filled with the joys of the season.
Isn't the sentiment gorgeous? I heat-embossed it in white for a snowy impact. The fancy frame is one of Kimberly's NEW SVG files! She created a set to coordinate with these Chalkboard sentiments in varying styles... naturally I chose the Chalkboard Frame- Flourish option! I accented the pretty flourishes with pearls.
I used several Cheery Lynn Designs dies to create my sentiment-inspired scene: Winter Neighborhood, Poinsettia Strip, and the Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames (for my base). My papers are from Bo Bunny's Silver and Gold collection. The poinsettias are trimmed in gold Glamour Dust and the neighborhood is dusted in Polar White Flower Soft.
Jingle on over to the My Craft Spot blog to be inspired by my talented teamies! While there, leave a comment on Kimberly's post for a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the My Craft Spot store!
 Thank you for visiting and I wish you a sparkly day! :o)
