A Late Post

I am working on making up a few Christmas cards here and there, and hoping that it will help my stress level when it comes time to send them out. I love this Many Merries Simply Single stamp, and think it's such a great idea! My nephew's wife is a Spanish teacher, so I thought this would be nice to send them.

When I began making this card, (my patterned paper was already cut to size) I decided to check out Beate's Sketch 57. I was able to make the sketch work by turning the orientation (due to the patterned paper design). The designer paper is Figgy (BasicGrey), and the Prima flower was purchased at Jacksonbelle Embellishments last year.

Oh, how perfect! What a super cute design! Gosh, I bought some of those flowers from Lindsey last year, too. Mine are purple. They're still waiting to be used. Sometimes I need to just sit down and design a card around an embellishment. Your nephew's wife will really appreciate this card!
