10/22 Pretty Pines

One of my favorite cards that I received at Founder's Circle Swap was a card by Stacey Schafer made with the stamp set called Gifts of Christmas. I wanted to case it so bad . . . but didn't have the Gifts of Christmas stamp set . . . so I improvised with the stamp set called Patterned Pines . . . a level one hostess set in our Holiday Mini catalog. I LOVE how it turned out. I think the pine trees and the Christmas Cocoa felted background paper look awesome together! The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and it is so easy to just stamp it, punch it out with the word window punch and adhere to your card. No worrying about lining it up just right and making sure that it is stamped just right. I love using punches for our sentiments. I can't tell you how many cards I've ruined through the years by trying to stamp a sentiment and then getting it crooked or smeared or somehow goofed up. Surely you've been there, too! lol! Anyway, this will be one of my Christmas Dozen cards that my customers will make in November . . . I think they will love it, too!
