Stamps in the Mail-Christmas

I'm starting my next round of Stamps in the Mail and the theme for the next three months is Christmas!  If you are interested in joining, there is still time!  I will be sending in the order on Monday, so email me if you would like more information or would like to sign up. I mail everything you need to you, so you do NOT have to be local to take part!  As soon as I saw this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I knew it would work perfectly for my first round of Stamps in the Mail cards.
This first month each participant will be getting the Merry Little Christmas Card Simply Created Kit (along with other goodies :) ), so this sketch was just what I was looking for to go along with the cute little pennant that is in the kit.

Working with limited supplies can sometimes be tricky but the kit contains buttons and Baker's Twine so there is enough to still make a cute card!  I sponged on a little bit of Silver Encore Ink over the embossing to add a little bit more interest. Here is a closer look:

Stamp Set: Merry Little Christmas
Ink: Real Red, Silver Encore
Tools: Pretty Print Embossing Folder
Accessories: Merry Little Christmas Card Simply Created Kit


  1. Cute Christmas card! What a great idea to add the Encore ink to the embossing. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. fabby the embossed script, so festive. But what I really love is your new look, so perfect for this time of the year. Great choice.

  3. Great way to use the kit! Glad you joined us this week at FMS!
