Still Seasonal

I'm still going on with the Christmas cards while all the right bits and pieces are readily to hand and although these items are only used for a short time each year it is surprising just how much seasonal 'stuff' has accumulated over the years.  Each year I tell myself I don't need anything new but usually something or other takes my fancy and gets added to the pile.  The stamp used for the twig with berries is a new addition for this year with the poinsettia stamp and the backing papers were new before last Christmas.  The dies of course can be used any time of year although being cut out in red turns them into 'seasonal'.  Both sets of stamps are clear polymer which is handy because they all required double stamping - poinsettia was cut out with scissors.

Backing papers - Craftwork Cards pads from 2015, probably discontinued
Twig and Berries - Stamp from a recent magazine freebie set
Poinsettia - Stamp set from Stampin' Up 2015 Christmas catalogue
Banner - Stampin' Up die set
Circles - Tattered Lace dies


  1. You really are on a roll with your Christmas cards VAl...this card has quite a vintage look to it and its lovely


  2. A fabulous card Val, I tell myself each year that I don't need anymore stamps and dies for Christmas. But as soon as I see the new designs coming out I cave in and buy them.

  3. Very seasonal looking card. You have fussy cut the poinsettia perfectly and I like the way you have used the banner to show off the stamp paper. hugs Mrs A.

  4. I like the look of this one too - rather like the scalloped dies.
