Christmas Swaps


I feel completely in the mood for Christmas! Probably because we are headed home to Texas this year.We have missed the past two Christmases with family and this will be so good for all of us. My daughter even said she wanted to skip fall, which includes her 15th birthday, and head right to Christmas. We are so excited!

I made these two items for a Christmas swap on splitcoast. I am so proud of this card. it may be my favorite card I have ever made! I just love everything about it. :) It Uses:

Curly label stamps/punch
Holiday Treasures DSP,
Old Olive card stock/ink/wide ribbon
Baja Breeze ink
Window Punch
Large Felt Flurries
To You and Yours stamp set

The recipe card was so fun to make as well. Theses are my favorite cookies in the entire world! I used to ask for these instead of a birthday cake.

I used:

Ski Slope and Bella Rose DSP
Riding Hood Red/Baja Breeze card stock
Old Olive ribbon
Clip Assortment
Felt Flurries
Wointer Post stamp set

Both are beautiful! I wish I had been a part of those swaps as well! I love your use of the felt flurries. I think they are darling. I agree your card is awesome! I love the stamped image in the top left-- it really adds to the texture.
