Father Christmas and Merry Medley 

This was what I thought was the last Christmas card this year. I’ve been making Christmas cards since July and would you believe I still ran out before writing one for everyone on my list. I’m grateful for all the people who have touched my life one way or another and I’m doing a few more Christmas cards this week probably posting through next week. I want to thank those who take time to respond to my posts you’ll never know how much I appreciate you. Just as a footnote this card uses the Merry Medley background stamp and the Father Christmas stamp set. 

Merry Medley with Pretty Pines Wreath card

I got the gist of this card from a photo someone shared on Facebook but although I loved the concept it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do so I’m just presenting it my way. From the holiday 2016 catty I used Merry Medley background stamp, the Pretty Pines thinlits dies and the 3/8″ Silky Taffeta Ribbon Combo Pack in Cherry Cobbler. Then I used some retired stuff such as the Cherry Cobbler enamel dots I decorated the wreath with and I used black chalkboard paper which isn’t really necessary as from what I hear Basic Black card stock works too. Then I really went against the grain using another brand of white pigment ink instead of Stampin’ Up!’s Kraft White ink and I’m just not willing to cough up the money for SU pigment ink with a full ink pad of perfectly good pigment ink I already have. Now having said that back to Stampin’ Up! The card stock used is just Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze. I think this is my favourite Christmas Card so far!
