I created this light and airy Christmas card by first adding texture to the card base using the Lil Inker Designs Stitched Quatrefoil Cover Up Die. Next I added a piece of vellum with the “NOEL” (from the Filled Christmas Tree Stamps) stamped repeatedly across it in cream. I used my Tiny Attacher to adhere the vellum so it would flow at the bottom.
The main sentiment is from the All The Christmas You’ll Ever Need 2 set.
The card is finished off with some Natural Twine and red and white striped curling ribbon (from the Papertrey Ink Wonderland Kit).

Hello again! Today is the last day of what I lovingly call Papertrey’s “Inspiration Week” and we are talking about the new Cloche Quarters: Winter Fillers stamp set in addition to the Pen & Ink: Christmas set.
For the Cloche Winter Fillers I immediately fell in love with these adorable ornaments!! They are soooooo cute!! I went with a blue/green color combination and stacked them high in a simple cloche case on a kraft background. Aren’t they beautiful?
Now onto the Pen & Ink: Christmas set which was majorly delayed (but Lizzie and I happened to snag a couple sample sets while we were filming the release party) so there probably won’t be much on these today. However, they are as beautiful as ever and I will forever buy anything that’s created in this font!! 🙂
I went with a festive, layered look for this card. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and accented with some of the papers from the Wonderland kit. I still managed to keep things airy even with the bold red in the flowers and ribbon and I just love how it turned out!
And of course that birch paper will always have a place in my heart so I had to put it right on top. 🙂
Thank you all so very much for joining me today!! I hope you have loved this release!! Please bear with us all as we continue to fine tune the release parties because they are going to be so much fun once we have… you know… sound and picture. 😉
Much love friends! Until next time…
