Christmas card

Hi everyone,

It's December already, can you believe it? Time flies like crazy! That means that the holiday season is just around the corner. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge it's all about Christmas cards! How far along are you with your Christmas cards? If you're not finished and you need some motivation, please join in! And for those who are done, you can also join in with fun Christmas decorations or other Christmas related projects!


This year I started a bit earlier with making my Christmas cards. It's a very big project to make lots of cards. I love making them, but I'm always very happy when they're done! Especially happy when they're done on time. I send the cards out always one month in advance when they have to go abroad, and fortunately I met that deadline!



The background is made with kraft wrapping paper from Ikea! I've cut it so that I could use it for my cards. My favorite Christmas background stamp was collecting dust (just kidding of course!), love how that stamp looks with Memento Fog on the kraft surface. Since we're talking about favorites, the 25 is my favorite Christmas die and that covered with Festive Berries Distress Glitter is so much fun.



The stitched edges I made with the Stitches stamp and I masked all corners to create a nice frame. The sentiment stamp is from Kaiser Craft. I was totally in love with that stamp when I saw it. I immediately how my Christmas card would look like.
