Christmas Cards for January 2024

 I have 2 more hand-crafted cards that I received for Christmas to share with you and a new card that I've been anxious to create!

A few comments about my card:
  • I used the More Wishes stamp set that was in the September - December 2023 mini catalog and has carried over.  
  • I embossed the Tahitian Tide layer with the Metal Plate 3D embossing folder.  
  • I used Basic Gray ink for my 'Christmas' image.  It just seems less harsh than black.

Do you do much punch art?  I keep retired punches just for such a reason.  These are all current punches, however.

The hat brim is the large oval from the Double Oval Punch that has been double punched.  I punched one oval to start.  I then adhered that to the end of a narrow scrap of cardstock and punched a second time.

The body of the hat is the large heart in the Country Bouquet Punch, obviously punched in Real Red cardstock.

The ball on the end of the hat is the wheel from the Trucking Along Builder Punch.

And finally, I have 2 more cards to share that I received from stamping friends, Ann Schmidt and Kathy Bottrell.

Ann used a Paper Pumpkin kit to start with.  I love her fun fold!

Kathy used the Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper, that has also carried over from the September - December 2023 mini catalog.

Until next month,  Happy Stampin'!
