MTSC....Holly Jolly Christmas

TGIF Peeps!!!

Today's card share is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

I am over the top with the vintage Christmas cards this year, I sooo was NOT going to succumb to this trend but it sucked me in gradually and when I got started I just couldn't stop!!! Not that I don't love the cutsie type I have always made, but I am falling for this style too.

The base of my card is a 5 inch square of soft suede card stock. I followed that with some crumb cake card stock and the DS paper is from the Stampin' Up Deck the Halls DSP. I added a strip across the top that is made with crumb cake and embossed with the Northern Flurry EF. The stamp set I used for the cute little snowman is The Stampin' Up Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set. I stamped him onto some very vanilla card stock with black stazon ink. I colored him with my aqua painter and some ink from my ink pads. I used Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake. The sentiment comes from the Bright Christmas Stamp set and is stamped directly onto the DSP with black stazon. I punched a snowflake out with the Stampin' Up large snowflake punch and added it to the card. I also used a large button from the Deck the Halls Big Designer Buttons pack. I tied some twine through the button and made a bow. I finished off the card with some Icicle Stickles.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
