Merry Christmas!

It's officially Christmas! Usually I would be opening presents right about now, but this year my husband and I are having a nice and quiet holiday at home. No traveling, no visitors - just us, which leaves me time to do some scrapping and update the blog. If you have a blog you probably remember how anxious you were to post when you first set it up. Well, that's exactly how I feel right now, so get ready for some more posts.

In the spirit of the holidays, what would be better than to post my Christmas card from this year. I've been waiting to use this little guy from Merry & Bright set for almost a year.

It's not very elaborate, but you know that when it comes to making large quantities of the same card some things need to get simplified and streamlined. This version of the card is a 4.25x4.25, but I also made the same one in a traditional 4.25x5.5. The punches made layering easy, but I felt like I was going to get carpal tunnel from squeezing the Stickles bottle for hours at a time. The bling is worth the sacrifice though :)


Supplies (All supplies are Stampin'Up! unless otherwise noted) :
  • Stamps: Merry & Bright
  • Paper: sage shadow, real red and whisper white.
  • Ink: Sage shadow, real red, basic black
  • Accessories: Stickles, ribbon from Hobby Lobby
  • Tools: 1 3/8 circle punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, scallop circle punch, scalloped edge punch

  1. Melissa and I opened up your card (we just got back from Vegas) and we were like "Wow, she totally made this by hand." Very impressive. And low and behold it's on your blog :)

    The bling was worth the sacrifice.

    Happy New Year!
