The 12 Cards of Christmas: Day 5

Welcome to day 5’s card! Are you feeling the holiday spirit yet? The kids and I set up the tree tonight, drove through town looking at the lights and have been singing Christmas songs as often as possible. It seems like the older I get – or perhaps the older the kids get – the more I am falling in love with the Christmas season. We have 3 trees in the living room and am pretty sure one day there will be a tree and decorations in every room in the house.

This card is a simple plaid number that would be easy to create in multiples. A single patterned paper for the background makes it quick (by the way, where ever did that baby put my good trimmer blade? Those raggedy edges are ridiculous!) but the cluster of stamped flowers and sparkly paper make it feel special.

This set is Merry & Bright from WPlus9, one that’s been seeing a lot of ink lately. Speaking of ink, I had fun with just 3 colors using a Colorbox pigment Quetie – Party.

  1. I think the raggedy edges look soft, too! Adds to the texture and warmth of this sweet card.

    Wow….you have trees up all over the place at your house! I don’t have a tree yet at all!!! With concerts all last week, we were way too busy to go cut one…..not to mention that it was way too cold to think abt traipsing out to get one. Now we have frozen pipes from the well up to the house and under the house, so DH and DS are busily engaged with that. Lots of times, I don’t get a tree up until the 20th or so……looks like history will repeat itself, yet again! lol….
