Perfect Blend Christmas

Happy Monday! I have another Christmas card to share with you today. It's also my submission for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #116.

























I flipped the sketch on its side because I wanted to use the coffee cup from Perfect Blend.   (This card will have a Starbucks gift card in it later today.  It's a thank you Christmas gift for someone.)  Along with the Perfect Blend set, I used Gorgeous Grunge to add some coffee spills.  Every layer was sponged with Crumb Cake, including the inside piece.  The Cherry Cobbler layer was embossed with the Pretty Print folder, and then the embossed areas were sponged, too.  The cup was stamped 4 times...once on the Whisper White layer, once on a scrap of Whisper White, once on Crumb Cake and once on Season of Style DSP.   I popped the lid up with dimensionals.  I made the banners by clipping the ends of the DSP strips with the Hexagon punch.  It's so much easier than trying to cut them evenly. :)

Flipping for Baby!

Hi! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! I'm taking a break from Christmas cards to share a baby card. I attended a friend's baby shower on Sunday, and this is the card I made for her.  It's the first flip card I've made with the framelits.  I used a longer piece of card stock (5.5 X 8.5) so I would have an extra panel to write my message.  I used the Envelope Punch Board to make the matching envelope. 

























I used retired stamps, but this little duck is just too cute to collect dust, and it's the perfect size for the circle.  ;)

Here's a shot of the inside.


The small stamp is retired, too, but the bigger label is still current.  Use 'em if you got 'em!  LOL








I'll be back tomorrow with another Christmas card share.

Christmas Messages

Happy Monday! I have another Christmas card to share with you today. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest made using non-SU! supplies, and I recreated it using all SU! supplies.
























It's not your typical winter color combo, but I love it!  What do you think?
