Hiya sweeties! Who is ready for Thanksgiving? Christmas cards sent yet? Just joking – I’ve managed to get far behind my goals for this time of year but am loving the feeling of the season. My tree is almost finished – do I get brownie points for that? How about a card? I’m torn between the occasional Thankgiving card and adding just one more to my stash. Today, as you can see, Christmas won out. I’m using a gorgeous timeless sentiment from Quietfire Design. It’s not a sentiment you hear all the time in passing and ‘that’ makes it a shoe-in for my stamp collection.
My 6″ x 6″ card is based on neutral colors. I started out with a brown card based and added a thicker layer of cream. Next up a thin mat of gold and another layer of cream. The beautiful ornate die is Spellbinders Victorian Medallion Three – I stamped directly on that layer. On top of that I added Spellbinders Oval Bliss into which I intertwined Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents.

Thank you so much for your kind words last week! I’m working on a project and didn’t get to blog nearly as much as I wanted to last week. Never fear though, I have a neat post for you tomorrow – something I’ve never done before. The bonus is for you visual crafters, I took extra pictures of the ‘guts’ of the card I’ll be sharing as I couldn’t find the right words to describe what I had done. Are you curious? I hope you’ll join me tomorrow!
