1st Day of Christmas

Hi Stamping Friends!

As promised, I'm going to show you 12 Christmas projects, over the next 12 days, to get you into the holiday spirit.  This first card was one from my Christmas card buffet.  The ladies asked for "shabby-chic" style cards.  They love the old-fashioned look, but they hate to sponge all the edges with ink!!

Stamps:  Winter Post, Tiny Tags, Season of Joy
Paper:  Red Riding Hood, Wild Wasabi, Confetti Cream, First Edition DSP
Accessories:  Scallop Circle die, Designer Frames EF, Jewelry Tag punch, Boho Blossom punch, Basic Pearls, retired ribbon, Spritzer Tool

This was my favorite card from that day.  It its loosley based on the card on page 125 of the big catty.  Can you believe I did not own Winter Post until just recently?!  Such a great set and I just started playing with it.  With my luck it will probably retire come June.  :)

Come again tomorrow and see more Christmas stamping fun!!
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!

Fantastic card! I love how you used the Frame embossing folder!!

Glad you are posting again! I love what you did with this set, and had to giggle about the gals wanting shabby-chic, but not the sponging that went along with it. Also, there's a lesson on your post - jump on the new stuff when it first comes out. That way you can enjoy it longer before it retires. :)

Love how you used that Frame too. Fabulous card! And I still don't own this set. The sale on it almost put me over the edge to buy it, but if I had it would have retired for sure.

Love that image with a frame! Welcome back, Krystal!

Very pretty! LOL with your customers - the sponging usually makes me change styles, too!

I have been trying to resist that set for a while now. It is one of the ones on MDS though so I know I can at least use the digital version even if it retires :)
