My Christmas Cards


It's always so hard to choose a favorite stamp to make my Christmas cards with each year...this year I chose my Pink Persimmon "Little Christmas Cottage" stamp. I made 25 of these, and wanted something quick to stamp that would have a cozy, homey feel. I paper-pieced the roof with some burgundy polka-dot paper, stamped the trees in green, & glittered the bare branches with white glitter so they look snowy and glittery.
Around the edges of the main image and in the snowflake centers, I glued Martha Stewart white-gold glitter for more sparkle! The snowflakes were punched out with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch & cream colored cardstock. For a finishing touch, inside of each snowflake I put a Mark Richards olive green gemstone. I'm guessing everyone who gets one of these cards will be covered in glitter after opening it up...there's a little bit of merry in each card that's sure to stick with the recipient long after the card is opened! HEH HEH. The glitter fairy strikes again.
