One Last Christmas Card

I decided to make one last card today. This one is for my childcare sitter...let's hope neither she nor her husband see this post before they get the card!! I am so thankful for them, despite having an illness that keeps David in and out of the hospital those two manage to come to my house every morning, watch my 3 year old son, pick my 10 year old daughter up from school and run their own errands and teach my son everything a home schooled kid would learn. I couldn't be any luckier or more blessed.

For this card I used CTMH's paper called Evensong. It has rich red toned colors and then a pop of green. Traditional? Hardly. I love the way CTMH's papers can be reversed and used to make a layout or card look totally different. You can see that on this card: The light sorbet piece in the background is the reverse side of the rich Tulip piece under the felt tree. Same page just different looks.

The stamp that I used is called Christmas Greetings and it has several bold images of snowmen, trees, ornaments etc. I love the font on this stamp set. I have used this set so much the acrylic is stained red for all eternity, but I dont care...that just means I love my stamps.

In this last image I have chosen to show you a close up of our new Heartfelt Die Cuts. They are the perfect way to dress up any layout or card. I love cards and layouts that are built up in several layers. I love the look of texture as well. My ribbon is from Michael's craft store and was a 1.99 for a roll. I think it brings everything together in a unique way.
So thank you again to David and Amy for everything that you do for my family and here's to many more years as friends!!


  1. Can't believe no one has commented on this card. I love it, and may even have to scraplift it. Let me see, I think I still need a card for my neighbor. . . TFS.

  2. Thanks Cheryl, you have my permission to scraplift anything I do. Thats the greatest compliment of all!!
