Slowly, Slowly Is The Way...



The title of this post must be my (not so) closet motto for this festive season which is fast approaching.  I have only made a handful of Christmas cards this month!  Eek gads! I am not so convinced that even if I were to get a wriggle on, I would have made and mailed all the cards that need doing to meet my holiday requirements.  But seeing that there are still nearly a fortnight left of sleeps before the Big Fella arrives, I might not throw in the towel just yet. *wink* 

This is just a quick little number I whipped up using mainly Papertrey Ink's holiday bits and bobs circa 2012 with the sentiment frame being the exception.  The sentiment frame stamp is a good'un from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Vintage Labels No. 18.

So best leave this a short and sweet post and get back to crafting.  Thanks a bunch for looking.  Catch ya soon!

You may be slow as you describe it, but every detail on this card is perfectly placed. From the polka dot embossing to the stamped and die cut holly leaves with just the right amount of buttons scattered about...all that tea dye distressing! Perfectly vintage looking card. I bet you can get a lot done in two weeks!

This is lovely, Jen! I've never really taken notice of that holly stamp before, but now seeing it on your gorgeous card, it makes me think I've missed out on something special! Take care!
