Wrapping up my Christmas cards

So this week should be the last of my cards unless I can't resist the urge to keep making more or I find I need more. Right now I actually have all the sentiments stamped inside and am proceeding to address all the envelopes with stamps affixed so I can just drop them in the mail in a few weeks. Feels good to be ahead of the game this year for once.

First up for this week is another water color card using stamps from Besotted Stamps. I really wanted to make another after the snowman and it took me three attempts to get this right. First time I tried stamping in green which just looked odd, then I did it in brown but didn't get the color combo right so tossed that one too and then finally not wanting to feel defeated I tried it one last time. I decided to heat emboss the pine cones in gold though and add a few splatters of Tattered Angel mist.

This card is being sent to my in-laws since my dh gets first pick of all the cards to send to his parents. I always find it interesting to see which ones my dh picks for his parents because I think that says a lot about his tastes.


  1. Ooh, I love your card, Leslie and I'm sure your in-laws will also! I'm sure it feels nice to have your cards all finished, I wish I could say the same! ;)

  2. It is a lovely card, very elegant. Congrats on being done with the holiday cards!
