Keeping Up With the Jones’….
Don’t you just hate it when the stores start putting up their Christmas decorations before Halloween???? ME TOO!!! Soooo… at My Studio… we decided “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!!!” LOL We spent last weekend making our Christmas cards!!! Ok… we got STARTED on them!! I mean between drinking our hot cocoa, eating the cookies and listening to the Christmas music we put on… we couldn’t begin to finish! LOL
This is one of those cards I made to send out this Christmas season.
My card stock is Pure Luxury Blue Raspberry from Gina K Designs. I used one of the newest stamp sets from Gina called, “My True Love Gave to Me” for my main image. I colored the birds with Copic markers and cut them out using my Labels 8 Nestabilities. I then mounted that on top of a Labels 9 Nestie in Little Boy Blue card stock. I added a few Waves Flourish punches and tucked them under and added a little Stardust Stickles to them. All of it was mounted to my card base using Pop Dots.
My card base was heat embossed in white using an older set by Nina Brackett called, “Vintage Borders”. I stamped my sentiment on more Little Boy Blue and used my Lacey Pennants Nesties.
I have many many more cards to make to get enough for my HUGE family, but it was definitely a fun day working with the other ladies and feeling festive!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! *smile*
