Season's Greetings - WCMD!

Happy World Card Making Day! If you are here via the Paper Crafts Magazine Blog Tour, welcome! I'd love for you to take a peek around, bookmark my site, and visit me regularly!

Here is the card I would like to share with you today.


A simple, classy Christmas card using the Very Vintage Christmas stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The tag image was stamped onto Not Quite Navy cardstock and embossed with silver embossing powder. I also embossed the Season's Greetings sentiment onto a piece of Linen Vellum cardstock. The center of the tag was cut out and I added the piece of vellum. The holly branch was also embossed onto a piece of Mellow Moss cardstock and cut out.

The double stripe stamp is also from the set, and was a great way to add a simple touch and ground the main image. The final addition was a pair of iridescent rhinestones as holly berries. Since both the entire tag image and the center oval are compatible with Nestabilities, this card would be easily mass-produced for the holidays!

What a great day it is today for card makers! I hope you have the opportunity to peruse some of the amazing creations out there and spend some time creating yourself. Glad to see you here and hope you'll come back!

Have a great day!
