Merry Christmas Santa Tree Stocking Card

Top 3 Pick at Dream Valley

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Bread Pudding


It's time for the midway posting over at the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog. I love to make holiday cards, that is for sure. :) so this gives me a chance to work on them all year long. have you made any yet this year?

I have been on a shaped card kick lately, as those of you who visit my blog frequently can tell. I decided to pull out my long forgotten SU! stocking die for this one. why don't I use this cute die more often? it is so much fun! :)


I also used the AKV Santa - tree image by Bugaboo to make more lighthearted card. I like to have a nice mix of fun as well as pretty cards in my collection so I am always sure to have just the  perfect card on hand for each person or family!

a few sequins, vintage button, ribbon, pom pom trim, mulberry poinsettia, and adorable little rusty bell are all the decoration this seemed to need. I added in a few hand drawn dots with a white gel pen and marker. simple, but festive! :)

hope you have a most wonderful day! thanks for stopping by!
Jennifer

How adorable is this project...We are so blessed of your joining our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you'll join us again in the new Challenge that started today. Leaving you with the encouragement from God's Word in 2 Timothy 2:10 which says, "For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory."
