Hello Christmas


Hello there!  I am very excited to share my latest Christmas card with you, it was fun making this card since I had a great color scheme to start with.  Pals Paper Arts has a festive color challenge this week, so create something fun, and link it up to have a chance to be a PALS pick!

I am going to start with the background of my card.  I have wanted to make this for a while, and with these colors this week, I knew I had to do it.  First I embossed my cherry cobbler card stock with the large polka dot embossing folder, then I punched a bunch of very vanilla circles with my 3/4 inch circle punch, making sure to cover all circles.  I made it a little larger than I needed so I could trim the extra off the side with my paper trimmer for perfect edges.

I love, love how all of our papers, ribbons, and embellishments all match up.  It's so easy to get a coordinated look.


Hello... I love this Hi There stamp set, the images stamp PERFECTLY, and are just beautiful.  I was going to do "Christmas Hello", but ended up on "Hello Christmas" since the placement lined up better, either way, you can always make your own sentiment by meshing two different stamp sets. The Christmas stamp was from the November MPP.

I could not pass up the champagne glimmer paper that was still out on my table, I added it because all Christmas cards need some glitter, right?

Gold buttons, woodgrain embossing folder, deco label framelits, cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon, gold bakers twine anyone?  They are all dressing on this pretty card.


This is another of my favorite cards for the Holiday season, it should mail ok as well, which is a plus. I do hope you will join us Pals this week, there will be some fabulous cards, I am sure!

All of these supplies can be found at my ONLINE STORE  but hurry, time is running out to get your Christmas projects completed and sent out.  Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
