Christmas Card Advent Calendar #9 – Di's Digi Stamps Christmas Bertie card

Christmas Card featuring Di's Digi Stamps Christmas Bertie, by Paperesse.

Just to keep you on your toes, today's #9 Advent Christmas card features a digital stamp I actually colored – Di's Digi Stamps Christmas Bertie.

Paper is from Papermania's Festive Frolics paper pad, technically retired, but still working on Amazon and some other sites. I've had this paper forever and a day and it's such a nice big pad I haven't been able to use it up!

A little self-adhesive velvet border and pearls give a bit of bling. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly Kim MacFarlane's Twelve Christmas Greetings sentiment sheet. These sentiment sheets are a real time saver and I have about every one Cuddly Buddly has on their site. I used this same exact sentiment on my favorite 2014 Christmas card.
