Merry Christmas!

I found this Happy Christmas Tree Cutting File from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and I'm submitting this card to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Monthly Challenge. The card base is Core'dinations White A2 cards, the Merry Christmas stamp is Recollections Christmas- stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment ink, the candy cane & peppermint stamps are Studio G Christmas set- stamped with Color Box Cranberry Acid Free Pigment Stamp Pad, the stars stamp is also Recollections Christmas- stamped with Color Box Copper Acid Free Pigment Stamp Pad, and the celebrate & presents stamps are Paper Wishes- I used VersaFine to stamp the celebrate stamp and Color Box Copper to stamp the presents stamp. I'll fold the star down before mailing. TFL! I'll be making more Christmas cards soon. I've got to make them around my work schedule- working at TJ Maxx during the holiday season keeps me busy! I'll try to make a few tomorrow, but we shall see! 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Let There Be Peace On Earth

I made the Christmas card below following this color sketch from Unity Stamp Company and I'm entering this card in Unity Tuesday.

The patterned paper is from a Recollectioins 8.5x11 Christmas pack. The senitment is from Pebbles Home For Christmas 12x12  in Medium Weigh Paper Pad. I used some scalloped edged decorative scissors to spice it up a little and used the same scissors on the bottom of the card. I highlighted the word "peace" with Creative Memories Basic Round-Tip Blue Pen. The panda stamp is a Unity stamp from an Itty Bitty assortment bag of Unity stamps. I used Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink to stamp it on the back of the same PP. I accented it with Ranger Silver Stickles and the 3 dots at the top right corner are also the same Stickles. The ribbon is  London Blue from the 3 Girl JAM Wine and Jewels Bundle.
The stamp on the inside is from the same Unity Itty Bitty bundle and I used the same Versafine ink as before. I stamped it on a Creative Memories Color Cube mat. I was just given a bunch of Creative Memories goodies from a woman in my church who used to be a Creative Memories consultant, but no longer sells it anymore. She gave me and another woman a whole bunch to divide between the 2 of us. I won't be buying scrapbook supplies for awhile!! :) Here's to the beginning of my Christmas cards! I hope to get a lot more made soon. TFL!
