12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 4 – Special Delivery

day4_Mrs_Santa1Good afternoon and welcome to day four of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! I apologize for the delay but for the last few days I have been having internet access problems so today’s post is late.

Today I bring you another card I created.  I used a digi from Tiddly Inks.  I love these stamps. She has a bunch and she is having a great sale on both clear and digi stamps so take a peek.  I used my Silhouette to create the shape of the box and used the print and cut feature so that my image was printed directly on the cardstock and then cut in the shape you see. Then I colored up the image with my copics.

day4_Mrs_Santa2Ok and let’s talk a minute about paper hoarders, yes, I am guilty of charge and I find that I especially like to hoard my Christmas papers like my friend Ashley. She and I vow each year that we have enough and won’t buy anymore and what? They seem to jump in our carts and home they come. Total sucker for pretty paper especially pretty Christmas paper. Enough of that rant. That said, this paper I used for this card is one of those highly hoarded by me.  It is called Nordic Pines by Bazzill Basics. Oh my goodness, all the paper in this pad are gorgeous. I mean it, every sheet is gorgeous. So I had a hard time cutting a sheet (baby steps).  I matted it on a cream cardstock and used Stampin Up paper for the card base. I decided to use some kraft envelopes in my stash since they match this paper so nicely.

day4_Mrs_Santa3My props were holiday table runners and a little tree I usually put on a shelf in the living room.

day4_Mrs_Santa4I put matching cream cardstock inside for the person to write their greetings since the card has a black base. I also used small pieces of coordinating paper attached to the corners of the paper for added interest.

I hope you like this card as much as I do. Even if I did have to cut a piece of my prized stash!!

Sending blessings your way!
