Merry Christmas!

Hi there!

A Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  Seems a bit odd to post a Christmas card on Thanksgiving Day, but as you know in the crafting world one must work way ahead before the season!:-)  A friend of mine gave me this Christmas stamp, so I inked it up quick and made this card.  This is one card that would be easy to mass produce.  I made an adjustment to the holly leaves and cut those out after several attempts.:-)   They were outlined in white gel ink and brightened up with glossy accents.  Gems and a ribbon were addded for the final touches. 

How are the Thanksgiving preparations going for you?  I made my cranberry salad last evening and will make some baked slice apples soon before going to sis-in-law's today.  Mmmm i can harldy wait to dive into some turkey, stuffing, etc. etc.!:-)  I wish for you a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded with love and good blessings!  Take care and hugs!!:-))

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Oh what a jolly and festive card Maria! Love the plaid background, and the pretty label. Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy your festivities!

  2. A really pretty pretty card, Maria. Love your DP and what you did with embellishments for the image too~ Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too, Maria!!

  3. What a beautiful card, the patterned paper is the perfect choice. We didn't do a traditional meal this year, but I did have to prep some potatoes! That is always so pokey!

  4. Simply adorable Maria! Love the little label and the festive cheer!

  5. What a sweet little card, Maria! Love the clean and simple design and LOVE that plaid paper. Just makes me think of Christmas wrapping paper and feels SO inviting!

  6. There is nothing sweeter than a plaid Christmas card, honestly! So simple but so decorative at the same time. Love the little holly leaves and red bow!

  7. I just about panic when I think about using a plaid or strip on a card--I almost always cut it crooked. ;) Fab job on this card. I love the sentiment stamp and the rounded corners on those layers. Nice holiday colors, too. ~Hugs, Cheryl
