August started off as one of the coolest on record here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia, which was quite appropriate, since the Christmas Card Club kicked off on August 2nd! We made 4 cards and all the ladies were delighted to get a head start on their Christmas cards.
Under the Mistletoe Christmas Cards
We created 2 each of the 4 designs using both Under the Mistletoe and Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Papers.
This card was actually created using the Sheet Music Background Stamp. The Stamparatus is an absolute life saver for stamping Background Stamps and really helped in creating the background for the Lovely as a Tree Stamp stamped in Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Ink. It’s mounted on Cherry Cobbler cardstock, so to complete the vintage feel I used a strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and a touch of Vintage Lace. Elegant and easy!
I mounted a strip of one of the plaids from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. The pine bough and pine cones are from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set and the coordinated Pretty Pines Thinlits. The pine bough is stamped in Shaded Spruce.
This card really shows off the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper! Mounted on Early Espresso cardstock with a Copper Foil strip and a couple of sprigs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.
The first time I saw this pattern in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, I knew it would be a perfect starry night background. Combined here with the Night in Bethlehem Stamp and coordinated Thinlits set using Night of Navy, a favorite neutral. The Stamparatus was used to stamp the sentiment and made placement so much easier!
