What Christmas Is All About......

Hello TRC Fans!  Today I have a card to share with you using the October Creative Cafe' Kit - Creative Christmas.  I usually send at least 40 Christmas cards to family and friends.  I want the cards to be easy to assemble plus flat enough to only require one stamp when mailed.  So keeping those things in mind, I created this card using the main stamp set - Home for Christmas.

This card measures 5 1/3 x 4 1/4".  It's a standard A2 sized card.  I cut the kraft cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2".  Then I folded it at 4 1/4" to create the base.  The red cardstock is cut 4 x 5 1/4" and the patterned paper is cut to 3 3/4 x 5".  I cut the strip of cardstock with the sentiment from the paper pad and trimmed it to fit along the bottom.  I stamped one of the house images onto white cardstock using black ink.  I colored the house to coordinate with the papers I chose.  I used scalloped and classic rectangle dies to mat the house on so that I could pop them up using 3d foam squares.  I thought the paper from the pad had a great sentiment on it for this card but you could stamp any of the sentiments included with the kit along the bottom of this card!  Here is another angle.......

You could use any ribbon along the bottom just make sure you don't make the card too bulky.  Hope I have inspired you to get started on those Christmas cards using the supplies from your Creative Cafe' Kit!!

Thanks for stopping by.
