Polka Dot Christmas Trees

With all the last minute details of getting ready for Christmas I almost forgot to post this card using the Pine Border Outline die. I love this die and I had fun making these whimsical polka dot trees on this card.  I used the same technique on this card as I used here. The difference is that on this card I added Glossy Accents over the top of the trees to really make them pop.

Sometimes you see things in the photo that you missed in real life.  While editing this photo I noticed that I left one tiny piece of Handsome Hunter paper in a corner of one tree. Let's pretend it's meant to be there :-)

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Grandson's 1st Christmas

My grandson is 10 months old so this is his first Christmas.  I pondered a long time on what to do for his card.  I wanted it to be simple and I finally came up with these mittens.

Back tomorrow for one final Christmas card!

Holiday Trees

Hi! I'm back with another Christmas card.  I had some pieces left on my table from a previous card that I made and they were calling out to me.  First I die cut the trees in the white piece. Next I found a piece of Handsome Hunter that I taped behind the cutout area. Then I pieced in the outline of the trees which is in Tempting Turquoise. Pretty easy but I really like the effect. The sentiment was stamped and then the whole piece popped up on dimensionals. Couldn't have been easier!

The next card that I have to show you is on its way to my daughter in the mail and I want her to see it first so I'll be back next week to show you all too.  By then I will be moved in and hopefully unpacking my stamping supplies. Yay!

Have a great week!

Season's Greetings

A couple days ago I had some time to make a few last Christmas cards.  I will share these over the next week but there probably won't be any more cards for a little while after that. We are moving on Monday so all my supplies are packed away. I feel like I'm in withdrawal :-)

I cased this card but now I can't find the card that I case'd from. Does anyone have a secret for searching Pinterest? It never seems to work for me.

I love the Eliza snowflake die by Simon Says Stamp. It is so delicate and pretty! It is popped up on a dimensional which is hidden by the enamel dot.

See you back here tomorrow :-)

Edited: I finally found the cased card HERE.

Stamps: Two Feet Deep (PTI)
Paper: White (PTI), Crumb Cake & DSP (SU)
Other: Versamark, white embossing powder, enamel dot, Eliza snowflake die (SSS), dimensional
