I admit, I (and this is Yana, btw) love sentiments. Fun sentiments, unique sentiments, quirky sentiments. I can buy a stamp set just because it has one good sentiment stamp. And a good sentiment can really change the look and a feel of a card.
As I was planning my next holiday project I wanted to step aside from the traditional Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and use something new. There's nothing wrong with these sentiments, but sometimes I just want to step outside the box and use something completely different.
Do you ever feel this way? The Eat, Drink & Be Merry sentiment from the Very Merry stamp set was perfect for my today's project. Its large enough to be a focal point of a card and it also combines two different fonts what go well together (and this is always a plus in my book).
I heat embossed the main sentiment in white embossing powder onto black cardstock, added a couple of houses and a tree from the Winter Wishes stamp set (another one with great sentiments by the way) and finally added one more additional message - Hoping your Holidays are filled with Magic (from the new Santa's Rise stamp set).
I added a bit of patterned paper, tied some red and white twine, adhered a red heart and that finished my project.
Eat, Drink and be Merry, everyone!
