Christmas Cards


Loved this Tim Holtz set of ornaments from Sizzix, and the fun festive script of the Merry 
Christmas! Kept the colors traditional and paired it with the Nordic Frames from 
The Greetery.

Easy to mail too!

Liked it so much, made 3!

Hope your Christmas is a merry one!

The Greetery's Winterberry set


Merry Christmas friends!
I'm sharing a set of cards made with The Greetery's Winterberry set, my favorite from
this year!

Very traditional colors on my card, with vintage vibes. Being a lover of all things colorful,
 I kept theberries bright and vibrant. The pink and aqua blue remind me of the 30's 
retro kitchens. I love the sweet happy vibes from all things retro!

I made a total of 5 cards with this design, keeping the layout the same, and changing 
the sentiments from The Greetery's Opposites Attract.

I also made matching envelopes for my cards, using the largest single berry for the
front of the envelope.

Just set your stamps in the Misti and stamp each envelope in the same position.

Such a fun card to make over and over! 

Time to address envelopes. Do you set a day in December to get your cards out?
My day is the 10th. We'll see if that holds true this year. Have a few sets that I just got
calling me, in their packaging, staring at me on my worktable...

Have a wonder filled holiday!

C9's Card Stacks Base


Merriest of Holidays to you all!

I made 3 cards with the new Concord & 9th Card Base Die and Home for the Holidays
Die set. Just too cute! Saw Wanda Guess's spectacular card during the release, 
have the sets!

The nighttime background with dark blue cardstock really lets the snowflake embossing
stand out. 

So I made 2 with the dark background, only changing the roofs from white to red.
It's so much fun putting the little houses together!

A top view shows the 3 stacks the houses attached to, the bases, with a few of the trees
glued on the background.

The 3-D diorama folds and fits perfectly inside an A2 envelope. 

Such fine detail, with a jolly result! 

Speaking of jolly, hope your holiday is a jolly one!

The Card Concept: Peace on Earth


Greetings, all! 

The Card Concept has a new challenge, Peace on Earth.

So much inspiration for your holiday card. And colors too!

I chose the prominent wreath as my main element, and constructed my own from 
The Greetery's Rustic Wreath. All pieces die cut from watercolor paper and spritzed
before stamping. I added some berries from Merry Sprigs, and mounted my wreath on 
The Greetery's Deco Frames die. Bow is from Fit to be Tied.

The Rustic Wreath has a base die, and the branches are arranged around that base, tucking
in the ends. The ends are the only part I glued in place. You can see the dimension in this

I hope this time of year brings you joy as we remember the reason for the season!
Blessings, friends!
