4 Months Till Christmas

Holy Moly there is only 3 months left!

Today is the 24th and therefore it's only fitting to show a bit of Christmas inspiration. 
Over at the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem - we share Christmas card inspiration every month on the 24th.  

Here is my card....


I have chosen to use the Dala-horse for my card. Traditionally the Dala-horse is red but why not go for a more festive colour and glitter :)

The little red bow is from Clearly Besotted Stamps.  

For the Dala-horse I have used Inlaid Die-Cutting technique. This time I have chosen to let all bits and pieces stay put and this gives a embossed look. 'Cause inside the Dala-horse there is a snowflake pattern. 

The Danish sentiment means "Christmas Greetings".

Emma's Baptism Card with Clearly Besotted

Beginning of August we attended my cousin Zia and her husband's little baby Emma's baptism. Of course I made the card myself including the gift bag for the present. 

Baby Emma was such a joy all day long and she was super charming in church. She certainly did her best to charm the socks off the priest. 
 

The gift bag is made using the Envelope Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. 
How to make this extra large gift bag - it's the full size of two 12"x12" cardstock pieces - you can watch THIS video. 



 
Hugs,
Pia
