Off-Color Christmas! ;)

Hi friends! I hope you are having an absolutely splendid week! It’s Hump Day and our feral dad will be headed to Neuterville early tomorrow morning! It’s so stressful getting ferals ready to go to the vet because they have to be trapped, they’re scared and get really irritated, they can’t be trapped too early because they need bathroom access, etc. etc. But feral mom is doing well with her one remaining kitten that’s now about three weeks old, and she’ll be getting spayed in mid-November. Then her baby will get spayed/neutered in March at six months. Hopefully, Lord willing, this will be the end of the feral business… “Ed, are you listening?!” Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I have an off-color Christmas card to share this evening… one I made a couple weeks ago and laughed the entire time. ;) My online friend, Deborah, shared a card a while back that she created with this same Whimsy Stamps set, and I just howled. Of course, I HAD to have the stamp set, and while shopping, I found a couple other off-colored ones that I bought as well, lol!

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner. I stamped the image and sentiment in black ink and colored the image with alcohol markers. I paper-pieced Santa’s newspaper with a piece of a page torn from an old paperback novel in my stash, and embellished his suit with Marvy Snow Marker.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of red foil washi tape, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and layered it on red cardstock.

And one more peek… I literally laugh out loud every time I look at this card! My apology to any and all who don’t see the humor! Bahahahaha!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Oh my gosh, love this! I really like off-color cards. That year my favorite that I did is a reindeer farting a snowflake because it was so cold. You need to have a sense of humor.
