Home for Christmas


I love how this card is like looking into a window at Christmas time!

I stamped the tree on Whisper White card stock and sponged a yellow glow around the tree.

Use Thick Whisper White card stock for the window frame.

The fine tip glue pen is perfect for adhering the pine boughs.

Christmas Stitches

Use the Cable Knit embossing folder with the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack to make some quick cards for Christmas.

I used Thick Whisper White card stock in the embossing folder. It works best when you spritz the mat with water or 70% alcohol.

And, yes! That is a tiny jingle bell!
