Christmas Wishes 35

Mona Pendleton | Monday, August 16, 2010 @ 11:29 AM | , ,

Hi There! I was a little bummed that I missed the whole "Christmas in July" celebration so I am going to try to make up for some lost time & get busy with Christmas card making.I couldn't resist the gorgeous Vintage K&Company sticker & lil' paper packs when I made a trip to my local craft store & it doesn't help when everything seems to be 40% off!!! LOL For sketch inspiration, I played along with Kazan's awesome sketch over at 2Sketches4You -

This card was super easy to make because all the papers are coordinate along with the stickers! How easy is that? All I had to do was mount the sticker on a frame made from a S4-256 Big Scalloped Rectangles SM die template, ink the edges, cut/emboss a scalloped edge using a S4-239 Classic Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite die template hand stitch it on, tie a bow & add a pearl.

I inked up the Christmas Wishes sentiment from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy Stamp Set and added the little scroll images from the Very Vintage Christmas stamp set. To finish it off, I stitched on a few buttons.

That's all I have for today. Thanks so much for looking! Have a great day :)

REMEMBER: I will be back tomorrow Tuesday, August 17th for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps August Blog Waltz! I hope you will be joining along :)

Supplies Used:

Waltzingmouse Stamps: Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy Stamp Set, Very Vintage Christmas stamp set

Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-256 Big Scalloped Rectangles SM, S4-239 Classic Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur
