A Little Sewing

Control Freaks November 2017


Happy Holidays!!! That's the theme for our blog hop this month. I'm super excited to show a couple Christmas cards I created with the Carols of Christmas bundle!!!

You might be arriving from the fabulous Melissa Davies or you might be starting right here with my blog...either way...make sure you go to the bottom and look for the NEXT button and continue on the hop with us! There are 8 blogs in this Happy Holidays hop to share with you.


This is one of the best bundles in the Holiday Mini Catalog - I love the Carols of Christmas bundle - the stamp set has fabulous fonts for the large greetings and an amazing set of thinlits called Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies. 


I thought the nutcrackers were a perfect print for this card - they come from the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper - aren't they fun? This card base is Night of Navy and the front is embossed with the Quilt Top embossing folder (144687). The addition of the Gold Glimmer Paper (133719) was perfect to add that bit of glitz to my card - don't you think?


The card below also uses the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper (144629) with Vellum Cardstock (101856) as the overlay. Such a subtle look - right? I used Real Red, Garden Green and Soft Suede ink with a Real Red cad base and Garden Green for the trees. The framelit design really makes this card spectacular. I added a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the trees - it's hard to see in the photo but in real life it's so pretty!


Here's a photo of the bundle - LOVE IT!

You've inspired me to get out that Designer Paper! I didn't think to combine it with the Carols of Christmas stamp set. It's perfect! Gorgeous cards, Kelly!

Kelly, the nutcracker card is gorgeous - I love the Night of Navy with it. And the vellum overlay n the plaid card is such a great idea. The trees and deer would have been lost otherwise! Love it!
