Hey there! Despite a flight delay in Houston we did arrive home before midnight last night. While the beds at the Hilton were comfy, it was even better to sleep in my own bed! Today will be a day of unpacking, catching up on laundry, and all of those little things that are left undone while the mom is on a trip! If I ever start to feel superfluous, all I have to do is go away for a few days and I'm reminded that I am when I return! lol!
I have a lot of swaps and ideas to share, but I still have a couple of "fresh" creations to share before I do. Today I'm sharing a Christmas card I created with the Quilted Christmas suite in the Holiday Catalog and the Cat Punch!
It's an easel card (love that fold!) created with Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, and Quilted Christmas 6" x6" Designer Series Paper!
This print from the Christmas Quilt Designer Series Paper makes it easy to create this "quilted" card. I simply cut out one of the quilt squares from the sheet, adhered to a mat of Real Red and then on of Whisper White, then embossed all of it with the Quilt Top Textured Impression Embossing Folder. I created the center embellishment with a die from the Card Front Builder Thinlets, Carols of Christmas stamps, and a Pearl Basic Jewel I colored with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends.
Hello Kitty! I punched a Crumb Cake kitty with the Cat Punch, then sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink for a Siamese look. I added 1/8" Real Red Solid Ribbon and a greeting from Merry Cafe' punched with the Classic Label Punch.
The easel "stop" is created with the Pretty Label Punch, stamped with another word from Merry Cafe'.
Inside sentiment is from Christmas Quilt.
This card is on my class agenda later this week, so I will be posting the handout/tutorial later this week too!
