Happy WCMD!

Happy World Card-Making Day!  I hope you are able to celebrate by stamping the day away!  That's what I'm planning to do!

It should not be hard to find some inspiration on a day like today!  Take a look at The Daily Dare for the usual daily to-do lists, or visit to participate in some special WCMD challenges.  There's also the World Card-Making Day Blog Tour!  Plenty to keep us busy and adding to our gotta have/wanna do lists!

Today I'm sharing a not-quite-traditional Christmas card featuring an adorable little teddy from Lizzie Anne Designs and some plaid designer paper from Basic Grey's Jovial 6 x 6 pad.  I stamped the bear on a piece of ivory card stock, colored it with Copic markers, cut it out, and glued it onto a piece of ledger paper from another Basic Grey pad, Manila onto which I stamped the Christmas magic greeting.  I used some tea-dye distress ink to age the edges, distressed, torn and spiral punched, to add to the vintage appearance.  I rarely use brads anymore, but I like the way they look here.

I love this adhesive-backed ivory crochet cotton border from Hero Arts, to which I added some red pearls.  A recycled black satin bow echoes the peek of black card stock underneath.  The overall look reminds me of a young girl's list for makes me think of dolls and ballet slippers and other magical things I had on my own Christmas list when I was little.
