Hi friends! The temperatures have been close to 90 degrees the last few days, yet I was inspired to make a couple of Christmas cards. Here is one and you'll see the other next week, both using long retired Stampin' Up stuff. In particular I've been trying to finish up a package of patterned paper that I bought in hmm...2009? Can't quite figure it out but needless to say I am a patterned paper hoarder, and I am determined to finish off this pack eventually, down to the very last scrap. I know I'm a little crazy but if there are any other crazy paper hoarders out there I'd love to hear from you, lol!
My inspiration was this week's challenge at Merry Monday, to use the words Love, Peace or Joy on your card. I love the mantle in their inspiration photo and also tried to channel the color scheme of greens and earth tones.
I stamped my envelope and a simple sentiment inside, and this card is ready to be added to my Christmas card stash. That box is looking sadly empty but I intend to work on that.
