Every Blessing Christmas Card

2016.8.29 Every Blessing Christmas Card

Yes, it’s that time when we card makers need to be thinking ahead about our Christmas cards. This Christmas card design is for my MIL. I’m thrilled with how it turned out and better yet, she LOVES it as well. Yeah! I used her stamp set, Every Blessing, which is retired from the last Annual Catalog 2015-2016. I used Gold Vellum card stock from Hobby Lobby since Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry that item. I embossed it using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love how it turned out! I also used Gold Glitz Dazzling Details in the middle of the star. Believe me, it looks stunning in person! (If you are interested in the stamp set, you could check on eBay for availability.)

“Wild Animal” Theme at the Paper Players Card Challenge #PP295!

Deer are WILD animals! I couldn’t resist this challenge. I used a RETIRED stamp set, Remembering Christmas from the 2014 Holiday Catalog! I love this stamp! We live on 100+ acres bumped up to the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois. My huge expansion of a front yard serves as a refuge for the deer as I have a “No Porch Shooting” policy! I love watching them feel at home and safe especially when they have little ones! Several years ago you could see nearly a dozen bucks from upstairs off to one side of our place bedded down. I had never seen that many bucks together! It was really special. I hope you like my card!

The Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge #295

2016.5.20_pp295

If you REALLY like this stamp perhaps you might find one on eBay or I could search for one on your behalf. It’s called Remembering Christmas – Wood Mount #131760 &  Clear Mount #131763 – It has a sentiment that says “Remembering you at Christmas and wishing you the best in the new year” to be stamped on the inside and a sentiment “Warm Wishes” for the front of the card. Both are in a beautiful cursive font. I just found this image to share with you!

2016.5.20 Remembering Christmas Stamp Set

I used the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set to make the color. I did some tracing to fussy cut and fit it around the neck. I LOVE the way it turned out! The sweet little Merry Christmas sentiment is from The Petite Pairs Stamp Set which will NO LONGER be available when the NEW CATALOG goes live on June 1st! I truly love this stamp set and I hate to see it go!
