Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Hello everyone!! It's Fall already and time to get started on Christmas cards.

I'm very much addicted to gold embossing for now, and how can I not use gold in a Christmas card!! This is one of my favorite stamps for Christmas. Both the bauble and the holly bough with poinsettia are from Joanna Sheen's Make A Wish stamp set. I heat embossed them with Hero Arts gold embossing powder and colored them with markers.







I love how the bauble has turned out. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps' Christmas mini gift tags set. It is actually a small oval shaped tag with a few snowflakes. I wanted to stamp only the sentiment. So I masked the remaining portion of the stamp with pieces of masking tape.


This year I thought of sending some cards for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. The purpose of this card drive started by Vera Yates, is to collect holiday cards for the elderly living in nursing homes. You can read more about it here in Vera Yates' blog post or here in Jennifer McGuire's post.

Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know your thoughts and comments.

This is one of the cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive.
