I finally finished my personal Christmas cards today. With all that is going on this time of year I needed something simple and easy. My inspiration for this card was from a dear friend and fabulous artist, Lesley Retherford. She sent a card like this to me 2 Christmases ago using Stampin’ Up! products. I wanted to post the original card also, but I’ve searched and searched my card storages and cannot find it. 😦 It is very easy to make. I used a piece of patterned cardstock and a coordinating tag from Merry Wishes by The Angel Company. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to 4 x 5-1/4 inches, wrapped ribbon around it to look like a bow on a gift package and added a designed tag. I adhered the layer to a Scarlet cardstock card base. You should really try this quick and easy card.

The snow we’ve had here has inspired this card. It’s cold and blustry outside… the perfect time to sit down and stamp. So many cards to make, so little time.
Stamps sets: Snowflakes, I love Snowmen (The Angel Company)
Cardstock: Blue 3, Premium White (The Angel Company) and Brillian Blue (Stampin’ Up!)
Ink: Beaux Arts Blue Palette Ink (The Angel Company)
Accessories: white ribbon, silver brad, silver jewelry pin, 1-7/8 inch square scallop punch, 1-3/8 inch square punch, 1/16 whole punch, Pop Dots (The Angel Company), Snowflake punch (Stampin’ Up!)
This simple little card was made using The Angel Company’s Reece 12×12 Cardstock Collection. The 2 patterned papers were cut into strips and mounted onto the red pattern paper leaving a slight space around and between them. The assembled pieces were mounted onto a card base of Natural cardstock measuring 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches. I stamped “Tis the Season” on the Natural cardstock using L’Amore Red Palette Ink. I cut around the stamped image and adhered it to the card using Pop Dots. I applied crystal Stickles to random areas of the image to give it a touch of sparkle. I stamped “celebrate” in the same red ink and “voila”! It’s done!

I made this cute little card for the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack last month. I used the stamp set Perky Penguins from The Angel Company. I used Liquid Applique sprinkled with glitter on the santa hat. Every time I see these little guys I think of my dear friend, Courtney, who has loved penguins every since she was a little girl. This card is dedicated to her.
