Hearts Come Home for Christmas

Good Morning all and welcome to my blog. I'm the designer over at  Card a Day Blog today and the theme is Home for Christmas. My card for today:
This card is so easy. It's an A2 card and all the paper came from my Christmas paper scraps from few years ago, (sorry no idea what makers they are). That is one great thing about cardmaking you can do a scrapbook layout and the scraps can become a card. The card base is brown (DieCuts with a View), the striped paper was cut at 4" X 5.25", the green paper with snowflakes was cut at 3.75" X 2.75", the brown border was cut from the cardstock that was used for the card base and that was cut at 1.5" X 5.25".
The stamped images are from JustRite stamps the Hearts Come Home Set. Whats so nice about these sets is that they are interchangeable within each other. So you get 6 image stamps & 6 borders stamps in one collection. The center image has one of the borders and was popped up with foam tape and red pearls (KaiserCraft) were put on each corner. All were colored with sharpie markers. Easy Peasy!

This is a fast card to put together for the holiday, there are lots of beautiful stamps out there for Christmas that just need colored for a specially made card, nothing to fret about during the holiday and a thoughtful card for the receiver.
We started our Christmas shopping this past weekend-what!-that is a first for us to do shopping together in October, lol. The plan is to be done Black Friday with that being the final shopping day for the family gifts so we can just enjoy the month of December, how are you doing?

  1. Cute card! You're so right about being able to transition from scrapbooking to cardmaking. Good for you for starting your holiday shopping early! I haven't started but I always try to get my wrapping done early. I seem to put that off until the last minute! LOL
