Silent Night

img_0537-copyThis is probably my favorite card from the November class. It doesn’t scream Christmas… it’s not the traditional red & green…yet it so nicely conveys what is so important to me during the Christmas season.  The church I attend has Christmas Eve services. Now that my boys are old enough, we like to go to the midnight service. We always end by lighting small hand held candles, dimming the lights and singing Silent Night – it’s absolutely beautiful!

I started with the Hymns of Praise stamp set as my inspiration.  I really liked how the Sapphire and Crystal Blue worked so well with the green anchor piece on the bottom. A little Silver Shimmer trim, some Bitty Sparkles… and you have the makings of a lovely card.

The new Holiday Expressions Idea Book now includes packs of coordinating cardstock for each of the My Reflections Paper Packets.  This is a great way to build your stash of CTMH cardstocks while ensuring you have the colors that work with patterned B&T Duos papers.  I love how CTMH makes it so easy to coordinate & get projects done quickly as well as beautifully!

My wish for you as we head into this crazy season is that along with the busy nights, the harried nights, and the try-to-fit-everything in nights that you’ll be able to take a few moments and enjoy a silent night or two.

Enjoy!
