1st of many...

Morning all,
Yay!!! I have finally managed to make my first Christmas card of the year!!!! I promised myself I would start much earlier this year, but I was clearly wrong (or just plain "can't get into it when it is still sunny") anyway I was doing a little hopping the other day and came across this lovely card by my fellow SU! demo Teri, Thanks Teri =). I thought to myself I have this set and I love this card, I'm gonna have a go! SO I duly pulled down my Christmas box (kept atop of the wardrobe all year) and found although I had this set I also had a whole lotta other Xmas goodies up there too, including this lovely holly border punch I had clean forgotten about! Result eh?

Anyway this is the card I made and it came together really easily too, I based it on the sketch from the Corrosive Challenge blog. I love this set but only got it really late last year so have only really used it once or twice before, It is called Old-Fashioned Christmas and you will be seeing a lot more made with it in the next couple of months me thinks... :0)

I stamped the jolly Santa in Creamy Caramel ink onto Kraft card stock and sponged the edges in the same colour. Kraft DSP is from the level 1 hostess set which is only available 'till end of September (I so wish they would make a whole pack in this colour)

Sentiment is from Seasonal Wishes set which I am sad to say is retiring at the end of the month but if you like it *result* as it is currently 50% off!!! but be warned you will only be able to buy it until 30th Sept or sooner if they sell out. Punched out here with the Scalloped Oval Punch.

Dazzling Diamonds in the snowflakes and a shot of the inside,

email me if you need either of these sets or anything else from the catty for that matter, and don't forget I am still offering capped postage and a special gift from me with all orders until the end of September.

Last shot to show the dimension ;0) I hope you like??
Have a good day, Hugs Sarah-Jane xxx

  4. This is gorgeous. I never think of using Kraft Card. Seems to me I am a bit behind with all the christmas cards. If I don't get a wiggle on it'll be bought M & S made to look homemade with added bling!! LOL
