We have a forever bachelor on our Christmas card list so I always try to make him a masculine card. That's easy to do with the wonderful Nature Sings set!! I was inspired by the sample card in the annual catalog for the scene and sentiment. The DSP is Festive Farmhouse, cut at 4" square then cut on the diagonal. By putting one of the triangles on each card you can end up with 18 cards from one sheet of 12 x 12 pattern paper!!!
Here's the other side of DSP...perfection!!!
Mossy Meadow card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
Cherry Cobbler - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
Very Vanilla - 5 1/4 x 4
Inspiration is all around us!! I found mine from the colors on my Starbucks cup!! Crazy, I know, but the moment I saw it I said "ooohh, there's petal pink, shaded spruce, cherry cobbler, black and white." So of course I had to create a card right away using those colors!
I pulled out the Snow is Glistening stamp set because it was still on my desk from another project!! Haha!! This stamp set is part of the Snowflake Showcase, a limited edition set of stamps and accessories that are fantastic, fabulous, and a must have! But hurry, it is only available until the end of November or while supplies last!! I love the little Snowflake Trinket. Just a bit of bling that is flat enough that it won't cause problems in the mail.
Now where will you find your inspiration?!!
