Have Yourself a merry little Christmas

Hi friends! Happy Friday to you all! Hard to believe that the first week of March is almost under our belt! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I won another challenge over at Creative Creases Challenges a couple weeks ago and the lovely Debbie invited me to guest design again. Of course I said yes… you know how I feel about fun folds, lol! This card is my GD inspiration for Creative Creases #27 – Anything Goes with a Fun Fold and features more stamps and dies from Concord & 9th. I absolutely love their Card Stacks Base Dies which create a card base very similar to my open box card design. The Tiny Trees stamps and dies were just begging me to use them, so I stamped the trees in mainly non-traditional Christmas colors and used glitter with clear embossing powder, red embossing powder, enamel dots and tiny gemstones for lots of interest!

Using the Concord & 9th Card Stacks Base Dies, I die cut the card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and stamped the background and sentiment from the Concord & 9th Tiny Trees Turnabout stamp set in Catherine Poole Tranquil and Do-Si-Do inks. I stamped the trees, pots and stars on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock using a combination of Versamark, then glitter and then clear embossing powder, or Catherine Pooler Do-Si-Do, Serenade, Lime Rickey and Tranquil inks, then Versamark and then clear embossing powder. I die cut them all with the coordinating Concord & 9th Tiny Trees dies, adhered the stars and pots to the trees, and added the enamel dots and gemstones.

Here’s an angled shot. The most fun to me is assembling these kinds of cards and watching them come to life. I know, I say that all the time! :D

And one more peek… this card folds flat for mailing which I love. These tiny trees are so stinkin’ cute!

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
