Super Quick Non Christmas Christmas Card!

December 11, 2013 at 11:21 am 6 comments

If that title made any sense to you at all, you’re doing well! This is a stamp from the JOFY range at Paper Artsy.
I bought it a whole while back and for some reason thought that I’d bought a Christmas stamp.
When I dug it out for my ‘quick and simple Christmas cards’ I realised that it was a summer/spring flower stamp.
No problem.
I could add a Christmas sentiment but quite like the clean and simple look.
I just coloured it with Copics, added a mini star from punched Papermania glitter paper & some Lawn Fawn twine.
Have I gotten away with it?!

I’ve been to the first nativity today. Well obviously not THE first one. But the first one of this year. The cute factor was off the charts and my littliest sporting a very trendy ‘hat’ with a foil covered star looked almost angelic.
There were a few tears and the odd tantrum but they all did an amazing job. They raised the roof on the last song and I thought that the days of attending sweet performances are pretty limited. In a few years they’ll all have grown up.

I’m off to get my Christmas cards made- I might even find a proper Christmas stamp!!

See you soon x

    I wouldn’t have guessed that the sentiment was not meant for Christmas…it totally worked! L love that you make it as a long card as it really suits the design! No need to change anything 🙂
