Christmas Memories



Christmas is filled with so many fun memories. Sometimes it is the smell of so many goodies baking in the kitchen. Sometimes it is the things we get to do around the holidays. Or even the things that we don't have to do around the holidays, like sitting at home and playing a new board game.

I liked the challenge over at Cricut Cardz Challenge. I have been wanting to use a card feature on my Joy of the Seasons cart for a while. I got the cart back in the summer and I haven't really explored much of it. I also want to play with some Heat and Stick powder I got from Stampin' Up. I love glittery cards but don't like it when the glitter ends up all over you (hence, the heat and stick powder).

The stamp that I used says "Christmas Memories". It is a little hard to tell in the picture but looks nice in person. I am not sure if I like using glitter on any sentiments, though. Next time I think I will use embossing powder instead. The paper is from DCWV. I added some stickles (frosted lace) to the pine cone and branch to resemble snow. I used versamark dazzle to add the snowflakes in the background. It has a hint of shimmer. :)

I can't wait to give this card to my cousin. She and her family came over for Christmas a couple of years ago and we went up to the mountains. We sledded and played in the snow with our kids for hours and hours. We were so tired by the time we went home but the memory is one of my most treasured Christmas gifts. I think she will enjoy this Christmas card.

Thanks for looking!

  2. I really like how this turned out. I'm going to have to investigate that card cut on my cartridge because I never noticed it. This beautiful card makes me want to take a notice. Love the sparkle you added. Thanks for playing along with us at CCC.
