Warm Winter Wishes

I’ve gone and done it…..I started on my Christmas cards. I know, I know, it is super early, but that is the idea. Maybe if I start on them now, I will have them done early and won’t be stressing come December.

I love this cute image created by Crissy Armstrong. Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs created a set of sentiments that coordinate perfectly with the image. Both are available at Whimsy Stamps.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Warm Winter Wishes by Crissy’s Digis, Warm Winter Wishes Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs (Both available on Whimsy Stamps)
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Crystal Blue
  • Papers: Papertrey kraft CS, Stampin’ Up Real Red CS, Neenah Solar Crest CS, Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather mini deck
  • Tools: Copic markers, Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Stampin’ Up circle punch
  • Embellishments: Doodlebug Ladybug crushed velvet flock, Close To My Heart fun flock, Stampin’ Up Real Red ribbon, the Twinery baker’s twine, misc. button
