Welcoming Christmas into your heart.....

Today with the weather so so awful, I thought I would make another Christmas card that would fit the challenge on Sunny Challenges and Creations this week. This time I chose to use Garden Green for my card base, I topped that with Confetti Cream and the panels were cut from Holly Jolly DSP that I had on hand and is just about to retire. Using the Big Shot I cut a scallop oval in Garden Green and a medium oval in Confetti Cream which I ran through the Big Shot once again this time inside the Square Lattice embossing folder, because as you remember at least one embossing folder was to be used. The image I stamped twice in Garden Green and coloured the star yellow is from the soon to be retired Christmas Classics stamp set. One of the images I cut up in sections and layered it onto the bottom one with dimensionals just to give it a bit of a lift. The sentiment is from Heard from the Heart, and on the inside of the card on Very Vanilla Card stock I stamped the verse from Snow Swirled along with a snowflake in the top right hand corner.  The bow is Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and the bow was placed in the centre of the top portion of the card to give it a 'bauble look'.It seems a bit sad to be saying goodbye to some of your favourite stamp sets, they are a little like comfy slippers really, they are always there when you wnat them. Nevermind on the 1st of September we will have a whole lot more new favourites that we will automatically reach for!


  1. I love this. The colours are gorgeous and the ribbon looks fantastic. A really bright and happy Christmas card.

  2. Oh I love this Gwen. The ribbon brings it all together. Great bow too!
