{Avery Elle} A Merry Little Christmas

I stamped this card a couple of weeks ago using Ardyth's Christmas Florals stamp set by Avery Elle and Die-namics Double Stitched Square STAX by My Favorite Things. Now I need them both! Ardyth is well-known for her square-shaped cards so I decided to follow suit since I was playing with her stash. ;)

I stamped the sentiment in the centre, then added layered flowers using my new Altenew inks, which I love so much. These inks are now my favourite inks ever. I was always a huge fan of the Stampin' Up! dye inks until they changed the pad from linen to foam and I've always looked for inks that stamp like the original SU! pads. I'm so happy to have invested in the Altenew inks (see links below).

The reason I waited so long to finish this card is that I was waiting for my May Arts order with the gold and silver strings that I regret not buying every holiday season. I finally got them and added a silver bow, along with some sparkling clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love this square card (of course! lol!) and I also love the Altenew inks - so glad they've got even more colours now! Love the sparkle from the silver twine and the sequins!

Gorgeous homage to Ardyth, Emily! I'd love to try those inks!

I love how the layered flowers frame the bold sentiment so perfectly! The cord and sequins are perfect accents.

So sweet and pretty! Love this, and good call on waiting for the silver string!
