A Christmas card...just because.

Hi.  A very quick post this morning to share a Christmas card.  No challenges this time.  I hosted a Stampin' Up! party recently.  I had an idea for using a few of my new goodies and I just couldn't wait to create this card!  Everything except the stamped lines and the 3 clear gems, are SU products.

Once I figured out what colors to use, this card came together quickly.  But I'm not telling you how long the decision process took!
I just love that diagonal striped dsp that I used behind the main panel.  It reminds me of candy canes :)
I punched all of the ornaments with my new Merry Minis Punch Pack, using the new Festival of Prints dsp paper stack (thanks Kris!).  I placed them just under the stamped lines (WPlus9's Heartfelt Mix stamp set), then drew in a tiny bow above each with a Cherry Cobbler marker.  I added clear gems to 3 of the ornaments, then stamped the sentiment.  The vanilla panel is adhered to the dsp with dimensional adhesive.  It's all attached to a card base of Lucky Limeade (SU).  The sentiment is from SU's Greetings of the Season stamp set.
Thanks for looking!


  1. Fantastic card Susie! I just love those stamped lines, & such sweet little ornaments too!

  2. This card looks like it was so much fun to make! Aren't the punch packs fun? Now you will have to collect them all. :) This card just makes me smile....I love the greeting font too. Great inspiration - thanks Susie!

  3. Absolutely delightful, Susie! The composition and stamping are superb!! It's so pleasing to the eyes! Love it!

  4. Fab stamped lines and sweet little ornaments! Such a great it!

  5. I love your card and will put it on my list for next year. In the mean time think I will use it for upcoming holidays. How cute it will be with hearts for Valentine's Day, shamrocks for St. Pat's, and even bunnies/eggs for Easter. The choices are endless. I think the mark of a good card design is being able to adapt it to other holidays and occasions...and you have hit the nail on the head. Thanks so much for sharing. Happy New Year.
