Cool Yule

It’s the half way point of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. Today is Scrooges Dream, we are to make an Anti-Christmas card for that person who hates Christmas. I don’t have anyone on my list that fits that category so I chose to do a winter card instead. Not really Christmas, so maybe the Scrooge won’t mind this one so much.

Stamps: 
Warm & Toasty (152615)
Card-Stock:
Highland Heather (146986), Whisper White (100730), Snowflake Splendor DSP (153512)
Ink: Memento Black (132708), Highland Heather (147103) Blends – Highland Heather (154887), Seaside Spray (154901)

Pals August Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “My Happiest Season.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My favorite holiday is Christmas, and with so many wonderful stamp sets in the new Holiday Mini Catalog choosing just one was difficult. This Z fold card was turned into an easel card that would look great sitting on someone’s mantle this Christmas. I love the Trimming the Town Suite, it is our making a difference stamp set this year. With every purchase of the set, $3.00 will be donated to charities devoted to adoption, foster care and infertility. Join me and make a purchase, and you can also make a difference today!

Although the card has lots of dimension, it lays flat for mailing. You could even fold the house inward to protect all the layers before mailing.
