Red & White

I would like to share one of my Christmas cards with you today. I have been seeing lots of red and white decorations this year and decided to make a card to go with what I am seeing in the market place.

Quarter Fold Card

I saw a number of quarter fold cards online at Splitcoaststampers and decided I would give it a try. I had a good time making the card and I am sure I will make more of them in the future. I can think of several stamp sets that will work well to tell a story on the front of the card. Artistic Etchings, Timeless Treasures, Homegrown, Lean on Me, and Morning Cup come to mind right away. Hope you enjoy this one.

Christmas Card Time

 This is the card I made for our demo meeting swap this month.

 This card was one of the make & takes from our monthly demo meeting. The original card used the striped side of the DSP, but I decided to use this side of the paper because I only wanted the red and blue colors. I think this combination gives the card an "icy" look.

I have wanted to make a center step card for some time but just couldn't get it together. Kim taught us how to make one at our Stamp Club this month. Her secret is cutting the center lines first, then scoring the card. This hint makes the card much easier to do.

My Favorite Time of the Year

I love this time of year. Time to get ready for the holidays, warm smells in the house, decorating, and making Christmas cards. I have been to several SAS's in the last couple of weeks and had a great time with friends and family. The SAS I went to yesterday had a card contest associated with it, so I thought I would share my card entry with you today. TFL
