From Our House

So tonight I drug out all of my Christmas stamps, papers and embellishments. I figure I'll shock the family and actually mail cards on time for a change.

I also had a little prodding from a stamping challenge over at Moxie Fab World. You should really check it out!

I created this card with two of my favorite patterned paper lines from last year, Cosmo Cricket's More Jolly by Golly and Cloud 9 Design Christmas Joy. I pulled out my "To You & Yours" stamp set from Stampin' Up and stamped both the house and sentiment. I then cut out the image with my Nestabilities and sponged on Distress Ink. The sentiment was punched out with SU's Modern Label Punch. The last step was to add my favorite embellishments, ribbon, lace and buttons.

I also have a confession to make. This is the first card I have made using Kraft card stock! I can't believe that myself! I loved working with it, so it won't be the last.

Be well . . . and enjoy the weekend.






It's all about the details:
Card stock: Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Cloud 9 Design

Stamps: Stampin' Up

Ink: Storage Units Ink & More and Distress Ink
Accessories: Dimensionals, Ribbon, buttons, crystal, lace
