Christmas Wishes to You and Yours

I mailed out a second Christmas card order yesterday. I was asked to make five cards preferably in the traditional red and green color combination. Today's card is my favorite of the five cards that I made. It's a perfect mix of the colors, papers, stamps and embellishments that I like a lot.



Supplies: All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless noted otherwise Cardstock: Vintage Cream, Ripe Avocado, Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft) | Patterned paper: Distressed Dots | Clear stamps: Holly Jolly, Big & Bold Holiday Wishes | Ink: Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo, Ripe Avocado, Versafine (Vintage Sepia) | Button: White & Cream Mix | Ribbon: Pure Poppy | Twine: May Arts | Pearl flourish, foam dots: Zva Creative (PEB03CA108, AD01CB101) | Tools: Mat Stack 4 Die, Eyelet Lace Border Die

I used a long white flourish (PEB03CA108) from Zva Creative on this card. The flourish has the perfect size to be used on a layout, but is too long for a 4 x 6" card, so I cut it in half and now it fits perfectly.

The girls are really excited as we'll be celebrating Sinterklaas this afternoon at my brother's place. Hopefully Sinterklaas will be able to deliver to presents now that the roof tops are covered with snow and slippery. {wink}

Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Wow, this is awesome! I can see why it's your favorite. I love all of the dot patterns, from the berries to the pearls to the button and of course the paper. It comes together very well. Nicely done!

  10. De traditionele kerstkleurtjes, die je hier gebruikt hebt, zijn prachtig! En ik ben ook helemaal weg van de strik en pareltjes. Gaaf kaartje! En ik hoop dat jullie een superleuke Sinterklaas hebben gehad vandaag.
