Christmas Cards

Wow - I thought the summer flew by but the fall is flying by even faster.  I can't believe it's the middle of October already.  I was in Myrtle Beach for a week for part of my extended birthday celebrations.  My husband & I had a lot of fun - he in golf school and me - shopping!!! 

I was able to do some crafting yesterday and wanted to share some cards made with the fabulous October Stamp of the Month - Very Merry Christmas.

 Pear & Partridge paper package has great colours, and patterns for all your cardmaking and scrapbooking projects.  I used the Artiste cricut cartridge for the bow.  The pointsetta and snowflake brad are from my stash of retired product.  
 These cute mittens tied with cranberry twine remind me of the days of strings on my mittens hanging from my coat sleeves.   I paper pieced the top of the mitten with another pattern from the Pear & Partridge paper.
The sparkles are from the red/pink sparkle assortment.

This card turned out better than I had thought - the ornaments were glittered up with almond glitz glitter gel.  Christmas is a great opportunity to get sparkly. 

These cards were a snap to assemble, especially with the Artiste cricut cartridge to cut all the shapes.  The carrier sheet from the stamp set makes it so simple to find the image, the page number and size is printed right on it.

I have a few more things I've been working on and will be sharing more artwork in the coming days.

Happy creating,

  1. I really like how your second card turned out. I like the ornaments, but have a hard time making them work on a card. Thanks for showing me one way.
