Another Peek

By now many of you have received your 2010 Holiday Mini Catalogs, so I guess this really isn't a sneak preview any more. This stamp is called Christmas Postcard, and is on page 41 of the mini.  I'm having so much fun coloring these days!  The Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon is also in the mini (pg. 21), and is absolutely heaven to work with. It's so soft, and ties into lovely bows that aren't bulky. Love it!  It is available in Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla, too.
This will probably be the last card for a few days, because I really must get cracking on the projects for the Holiday Mini Blog Hop next weekend!  I'll be holed up in the stamp cave, trying to think up ways to wow you. ;-)

Edited to add: The background was stamped in Sahara Sand on the Confetti White cardstock.

  1. the more I see this set the more I like it....thanks for sharing!

  2. Your coloring is gorgeous. What color did you use on the bg stamp? It's so subtle. Thanks for the comment about the cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon. I was under the impression that it was just for sewing.

  3. Sharon, I tried to email you, but it got bounced back, so I hope you see this. I used Sahara Sand for the background stamp. Tried Crumb Cake first, but it was too dark. :-)

  4. Stunning card. Love how you have colored it and that ribbon is to die for. Also love how you have distressed the embossing in the background. GORGEOUS

  5. Don't you just love that ribbon? This card is just so beautiful. Love it! The Sahara Sand background is so perfect.

  6. This is beautiful! TYFS!
