Merry Wishes

Friday, October 30, 2015

Hi there! It's already Friday and almost officially the weekend! Just waiting on my husband to get home so we can go buy a few new things for Christmas. Our new house has higher ceilings so we're getting a taller Christmas tree for the living room. I can't wait! Today I have a Christmas card for Freshly Made Sketches.

I admit I struggled a bit with the squares. I started out wanting to make them presents and proceeded to change my mind a few times before deciding to keep them as squares. I pulled out a new stamp set I hadn't used yet and stamped snowflakes onto white die cut squares. I cut squares slightly bigger than the white squares and die cut the large part of the sentiment out of red card stock. I die cut some white snowflakes, adhered them on top of the squares, and stamped the smaller part of the sentiment on the white panel. I matted the panel with a piece patterned paper and adhered it to my card front. 

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Quilted: Winter, PTI Wet Paint Holiday
Dies: PTI Wet Paint Holiday, MFT Let it Snowflake, Sizzix Squares
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy
Paper: PTI Pure Poppy, PTI Stamper's Select White, PTI Pure Poppy + White Basics Patterned Paper

Thank you for coming by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. This red and white Christmas card is a beauty! The stamped snowflakes and die cuts really make those little squares pop. And that touch of candy cane stripe peeking out is the perfect touch.
