Making Christmas Cards with Non-Holiday Stamps

It’s Sandy here with another Christmas card to share! I challenged myself to make a holiday card out of a darling but non-holiday set of stamps from our friends at Lawn Fawn – and you’ll have to tell me if I accomplished the goal!

The finished card is 4″ by 9″ – and fits in a business envelope.

Thanks so much for the comments  you leave, both here and on YouTube – I do read them all and respond, so feel free to leave questions too!

Merry Christmas!

Sandy

    This card is just adorable!  Love all the critters and castle with holiday cheer.  And the ribbons (suede strings and gold star) add so much to it.  Great card.

    You pulled it off !  This is such a cute card and what a great way to use the May Arts ribbon. I am in awe of your coloring. Your fussy cuts are perfect, looks more like you used a die. Great job Sandy.

    Sandy,
    I love what you did with this card and this stamp set.  I enjoy traditional Christmas cards as much as the next person, but this was so cute and fun.  I also think it would be wonderful for a niece/nephew/grandchild, etc. . .   Great job challenging yourself, you certainly pulled it off!

    YES, Sandy, you pulled it off!  You managed to turn dragons, griffins, unicorns and the frog King into a Christmas card.  Great idea to have all of them helping to wind the ribbon around the tree.
