This year I am making my Christmas cards.
This first one is a one of a kind.
I wanted a simple design and when I put this together
I realized that it was not going to be a quick and easy
one to replicate, so there will be only this one.
I used scraps of Christmas papers for the banners.
The ornament is "Icicle Ornament" (#83406) from
I stamped the image onto white card stock, colored it with
colored pencils and used gamsol to blend the colors.
I then fussy cut it and covered it with
The string is some home made bakers twine.
Then I saw a picture that inspired this card and
I love it.
At My Happy Place we have some old sheet music
up for grabs by anyone that would like to use it.
Since it obviously isn't acid free, it can't be used for
scrapbooking, but it's great for cards.
In a few hours, I put a huge dent in what I need to make.
Some have black print.
Some have green print.
And there are some that are green with black print.
For the stars, I used Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink
to color some of the page, then punched stars out for the
top of the trees.
I'm really happy with the cards I chose to make this year.
I hope the people I send them to like them as much as I do.
