A Merry Christmas to You

Hello everyone, I have made three really easy cards today and I really love how they have turned out. I feel like I am starting to get somewhere with christmas cards, but I have still got loads to make.....some CAS ones I think!!

I have followed the theme for month 3 of the Waltzingmouse christmas card challenge which is kraft, red plus white or cream. I went with cream for my base colour and I distressed it with antique linen distress ink and stamped two of the snowflakes from the very vintage christmas set at random. I then stamped my label out twice, once in red and the other in black and from the red one I cut out the merry christmas and mounted it with foam pads onto the black one. I then layered the whole thing onto a scalloped circle cut from kraft cardstock. I stitched around the edge and added ribbon to finish.

My final photo show all three cards I made with the same design.

Card/Paper: Cream and kraft card.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Very Vintage Christmas
Ink: Memento tuxedo black and fired brick distress ink
Embellishments: Ribbon
Tools: Sewing machine, trouvaille, nesties, TH blending tool
