Good Tidings of Comfort and Joy


I am hurrying to get this blog post completed.  We are supposed to get snow tomorrow so my drive home will take forever – which means no time to blog or craft.  And I really need to clean the ashes out of the fireplace so we can have a fire tomorrow night.

For today’s card share, I made a really quick, not overly traditional Christmas card using two Catherine Pooler Stamp sets; Sweet Home Wreath and Boughs and Berries.  These stamp sets work beautifully together!

Boughs and Berries and Sweet Home Wreath

I started by stamping the fuller (top) leaf wreath with Versamark ink and embossing it with Ranger Detail Gold Embossing powder.  I then stamped the other leaf wreath with Versamark and embossed it with Brutus Monroe Penny embossing powder.


I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the two wreaths using Versamark embossing ink and Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  I stamped some of the images from Boughs and Berries using Catherine Poolers Rockin Red for the larger floral, Samba for the smaller floral, Juniper for the darker blue leaves and Day Dream for the lighter blue leaves.

I stamped the center of the florals with Versamark Ink and embossed with Ranger Gold embossing powder. I glued the leaves and the single flower with liquid glue and then popped up the dual flower with 3M foam tape.  I then mounted my card panel onto some scrap gold card stock and then mounted the entire panel to a top fold card base.


For final touches, I added a few Nuvo drops in Gilded.

This card was so quick and very easy to make multiples. I really like how the sentiment from Boughs and Berries fits into the Sweet Home Wreath center.

Thank you so much for coming buy. I hope you have an amazing first week of November!
