Happy Holidays

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

I’ve started on my Christmas cards. Love making them, they are my favorite themed card. It was pure joy to bring out the holiday stash. I found this beautiful MME paper which I’ve hoarded for I don’t know how long.Three years or. Time to use it! :)

I’ve used Amy’s fab sketch from Jingle Belles.

It’s a great one – perfect for clean and simple and quick cards (this one took like 15 minutes). Most of the card is done once the paper is glued down to the card base. I added a stamp and some lace and twine. Done.

My second card is this week’s Reprint project. I used the cutest little bear stamp and Reprint Basic Collection Pastel 6x6.

A close up. :) I stamped the bear twice, colored it with distress ink and layered them to get some action.

Have a fab day!

I am soooo happy you are creating again, my friend! What adorable cards! I love your take on Amy's CAS sketch design! The lace and twine combo is so up my alley. Love the font on that pretty sentiment, too. And the bear... Eeeek, he is SO sweet! And your design showcases him brilliantly!
