Clean and Simple Christmas Card.

Good morning everyone!
Yesterday I had a not so great day with my hands and wrists, nothing to be concerned about just part of being a cashier for lots of years. Anyway I saw the Kristina Werner had done the very first Christmas card for her series she does every year. I was so excited to see it. It really does help me get in the mood and I love the music she plays with it and if we're lucky we get to hear Mannie in the background her kitty! I am a cat lover from way back and so  love to hear dear Mannie in the background. So the card she did inspired me to finally get around to making my own card this year. Usually I do all different which can mean different costs for mailing so I really tired to apply what I had learned from the two classes I have taken from Kristina and made a clean and simple Christmas card. I knew when I saw her first card I wanted to do a tag like card. So here it is.
Many of you know I finally got the Silhouette Cameo I really wanted so this was a tag I bought off the site and the mittens are a Stampin up stamp and punch set. so cute. I loved the little reindeer that came in the set too. The saying is one I bought the last time I took the holiday boot camp class from Hero Arts Called a very Merry Christmas. I used Neenah Desert Storm card stock for the tag and Stampin Up's Cherry cobber ink and card stock. I used Crumb cake for the kraft color on the mittens and tied it all together with a little bit of May Arts twine that I got from Simon Says Stamp. I did order Crumb cake envelopes and twine from Stampin up today to finish it off. I only had a small amount of the twine from May Arts and I needed more stamp cleaner and oh my a new heat gun because I have to shake mine to get it to work. So there you have it my Christmas card. Simple, Clean and oh so easy to reproduce.. best part my machine did most of the work. Oh I love that silly machine~ anyway have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

  2. Thank you I was going for the wow but making it look pretty plain at the same time.
