The set is such a beautiful set and this card super easy. Stamp the trees in the middle and then off the sides without reinking giving the illusion of depth. Stamp your snowflakes randomly and then the sentiment. Add a little washi tape and a beautiful wooden snowflake with a little gold cording and you are done. Now how hard was that?
Five of these hmmm, maybe ten, they are that easy!
Christmas cards that is! Time to start thinking about how many you need and what you want to make. Check your supplies and order what you need so that you will have plenty of time to get them made without STRESS! Think about it, you need say 40 cards, it is 8 weeks till December and you want to have them in the post at the beginning of the month. If you made, signed and addressed the envelopes five cards a week you would be done and your overseas cards would be in the mail mid October just like they are supposed to be. Yes, it is possible and low stress. So what should you make, classic cards like this one?

I don't know about you but the chill in the morning and evenings is definitely there, the afternoons glorious sunny and warm but the leaves are changing colours and falling off the trees and bears are visiting regularly- sure signs winter isn't that far away. Well before winter we have Halloween and if you like to make special treats to give to those special people in your life, it is time to start thinking about your supplies. I got the Baker's Box thinlit in my last order, it had been on my list of wants and I am so happy I finally got it. It makes a really nice sized box and super easy to put together. It uses 2 pieces of DSP or card stock 6 x 6 so it is perfect for using up some of that hoarded, it's so pretty, I can't cut it DSP.
I used some Tangelo Twist DSP from the 2014-2016 In Colour DSP stack and just where did that sentiment and skull and cross bones come from? Last September's Paper Pumpkin kit, remember that all Paper Pumpkin stamps are Photopolymer and exclusive so you can't find them anywhere else. My Bakers box is closed by simply threading some retired ribbon through a punch hole in the top and fastened with some linen thread. But you don't have to undo anything to remove the treat, simply flip open one of the sides like a milk carton and
This card is sure to make you smile and forget about your problems. Lively colours from our Cherry on Top DSP stack are the base of this card. A simple strip of Watermelon Wonder anchors the happy little crab.
I stamped the crab onto Watercolour paper with Black Stazon ink and using my Aquapainter and our Watermelon Wonder ink pad painted him in. Another quick and easy card perfect to send to anyone.
lately I see to have a thing for shiny- gold or silver- it really doesn't matter but I am loving shine. My go to shiny things- our beautiful gold or silver foil paper and Fancy Foil Vellum. Funny I have had our Fancy Foil Vellum for a while and it seems in the last few months every second card uses it!
Is it the fact that the shiny gold just makes a super basic card that much more wow? I used our Heavyweight Whisper White card stock for the base and then layered on a piece of Gold Fancy Designer Vellum sheets, this time using the Dotted one. The sentiment from Butterfly Basics is heat embossed with our Gold Embossing powder and layered onto a piece of Gold Foil. To finish off the card a simple gold butterfly created by running the die through the Big Shot. How easy is that? Want to know a trick for getting perfect butterflies everything without having to poke out all those little pieces? Layer your sandwich as follows- Magnetic platform, cutting plate, Unscented dryer sheet, card stock, wax paper and then your die. Perfect results each and every time and you can reuse that dryer sheet over and over!

Is that sentiment not the best? The cute little frog is from You're Sublime and I stamped him with Stazon onto our Watercolour paper and then coloured him in with my Aquapainter and Cucumber Crush ink pad. His Pumpkin Pie balloon is die cut with our Cutie Pie framelits and I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to make the string. A very simple layout with the vivid colours really makes this card pop.
How about a cake filled with fun little things, gift cards, candy, lip balm, so many different things fit. I used the Cutie Pie thinlit die and my Big Shot to create this fabulous, calorie free cake (if you don't count what is inside!)
Ten of the cake or pie wedges make a complete circle. This one was for my son who turned 30 at the beginning of the month, and since he loves being out in the outdoors, we decided a log round would be perfect. Yes, there are 30 rings on this tree! The lumberjack and tree rounds are from a retired set from last years Holiday Mini.
