Cute Christmas again
As I'm starting Christmas cards early this year, I want to use up some of the things I had leftover from 2010. Though I fell in love with these items in last year's SU! mini catalog, this Cute Christmas stamp set and the coordinating paper is, well, a little too cute for me. I used it for some of my cards last year but it doesn't really work for the cards I make for my Mother and my aunt. It still makes attractive cards that I know will be perfect for others. So these are headed for the Operation Write Home box. I love the colors in this collection - Baja, Blushing Bride, and Real Red. I've added some Ocean Tides from Papertrey Ink.
One of the challenges I had with this set was only one greeting and it says "Have a Cute Christmas." So for this card I used a tag stamp and tucked it behind the colored image.
The layout is for this week's Splitcoaststampers card sketch challenge.
I'm nearly out of Martha Stewart red and white baker's twine - Yikes! I need to see if it is still available. It is the best size I've found.
Thanks for visiting!
