Merry Christmas – the day after!
Thinking about the beauty of this season and all the connections and beautiful greetings from family and friends…it still feels very festive and such a blessed time of the year. Now for the thank you notes and more holiday cards that didn’t get sent before Christmas. It was great playing with the Winter Woods Stamp set again today…can’t seem to get enough of this great bundle. I am certain I will use it for many years to come.
No two cards turned out the same – I used both the very vanilla and whisper white note cards and cut pieces various sizes to layer on top . I am so taken by that background stamp in the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set which I used under the trees. I ran that piece through the Big Shot with the Woodland embossing folder and then lightly sponged certain areas to highlight with a little smash of color. I used Wink of Stella to give the trees a little sparkle which doesn’t show in the photos, A touch of linen thread, a bow and a button wrapped the trees for a more finished look.
I discovered that this winter woods set is NOT retiring after December 31st – it can be purchased as a bundle at 10% off until December 31 (see page 27 in the Holiday Catalog AND it will be carried over in the Occasions catalog but not as a bundle. I listed all the supplies below.
REMINDER TO SIGN UP FOR THE BUFFET ON JANUARY 8TH and make one of your own. It is so easy to make a bunch at one time with that Stamparatus…what a tool!
