I came across this card on my friend Anita Meade's blog and just had to go try a Christmas version.
My card features the Christmas paper from the Dressing Up Christmas special - it is from the Welcome Christmas Bundle which includes the Welcome Christmas stamp set (the greeting on the card is from this set) plus the limited edition Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is just lovely and includes 2 designs with a lovely velvety finish. Mmmmmm!
Here's a pic of a few of the designs from this pack. That top red/white one is one of the ones with the flocked finish.
This card was quick and easy to put together. I just punched some designs from the DSP pack using the scallop square punch and grabbed some coordinating cardstock. I've used Sahara Sand, Riding Hood Red and Kraft. An antique brad just finishes it off. I LOVE these and am on about my third pack I think!
The greeting 'Joy' is stamped on my Sahara Sand base card using Crumb Cake (Kraft) ink.
While I had my things out, I tried a few other colour variations. Watch out in the next few days for my November newsletter for those ones. Coming to your inbox soon. (There's a sign up box at the top right if you'd like to join my newsletter crew.)
Have a wonderful weekend. Hannah gets back from her first school camp this afternoon so I'm looking forward to hearing all her news. Then it is a big day of face painting for me! Let's hope the weather smiles on us.
