Papertrey Ink and Happy Little Stampers Christmas card



Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a good weekend and have some time to relax and play. It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges and this time the theme is Anything Goes so you can let rip and design any kind of Christmas card you fancy. 


I've been looking through the Christmas cards I have in my stash and found that quite a lot of them will have to be hand delivered because of the cost of posting them, so I decided to go CAS this week and have an almost flat card that will be post friendly.





I used a tree image from Papertrey Ink's new Market Mini Kit : Holiday Folk, which allows you to stamp the basic tree and then have fun decorating it with all the tiny ornaments that are included in the set. I added lots of these and then added a snow shadow underneath before dotting some glue around the tree and adding some glitter, which looks pretty IRL!  Why is glitter so hard to photograph?



I used a sentiment from the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments set which I stamped in two colours, and then cut a thin strip of stripey patterned paper, and a strip of red card to bring all the colours together. A little wooden star, which I coloured with an alcohol pen finished it off.


I hope you will hop over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see all the inspiration we have for you this time, and you have a whole week to have a play and link up your entry.

I'd like to play along with





Thanks for stopping by

  1. LOVE this CAS design Carol. Sweet image and I love the multi-coloured stamping ... along with carrying that through to the sentiment and having the strip on the side. Such a beautiful and well thought-out design. And that snow at the bottom adds a lot of sparkle. Thanks for playing along at ATCAS.
