Stopped in at Hobby Lobby yesterday and found some scrapbook paper I really like.  Sometimes I hoard paper but I am working hard to use what I buy.  The card I made today is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  I really love making cards bigger than the A2.

I used a $2.00 alphabet stamp set to stamp Ho Ho on the little round stitched tag and used tea dye Distress Ink on the stitched die banner and circle.  Santa is a Stamps Happen rubber stamp and I only stamped his face.  The stamp is so big... one of those kind you need to lay the paper onto the stamp rather than the other way around or you never seem to get a complete image.  I colored him in with copics and used some white texture paint to color the brim of his hat. 

Along the side of the snowflake paper I used my rolling stitch hole puncher and then hand stirtched with embroidery thread.   Need I say... sequins?  


  1. Hello, Mary! Thank you for stopping by my blog and all your kind comments! I wanted to pop over and see what you've been doing! Your Christmas card is so pretty! Love your new paper! Beautiful stitching too!

  2. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! I really like your paper, the different shaped tags, and the Santa stamp you used. I love your stitiching, too! ;)

  3. Love the vintage flavor of your card. I have never heard of a rolling stitch hole puncher--CLEVER!!! This is an awesome Holiday card!
