True Thyme and Wintergreen

True Thyme and Wintergreen

I was feeling nostalgic and looked through my retired Christmas papers to find the wonderful Wintergreen Designer Series Paper. On this card, I combined it with Sage Shadow and True Thyme (which is a retired In Color). The layout is a slightly modified SFYTT by Jen del Muro (5/23/09).

I stamped the house image and sentiment from the To You & Yours set (which is still available) with True Thyme ink on a Whisper White oval and matted with a True Thyme oval, then pierced along the edge. Two silver brads were inserted on either side of the greeting. The front of the Sage Shadow card was trimmed to measure 3″ wide, and a scalloped strip of Whisper White card stock was adhered along the edge. The white contrasts nicely with the dark strip of Wintergreen DSP that was adhered inside the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
