For the Team Stamp It Christmas Card Blog Hop I wanted something heartfelt. My family has made Swedish gingersnaps my whole life and these reminded me of this family tradition.
I made so many Christmas cards that it was hard to choose which one to use for the Christmas Blog Hop.
I used the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite as my main product. Using my friend’s dies on my DSP, I cut out the ornaments, mounted them on dimensionals, added white Baker’s Twine and adhered it to Basic White cardstock. The stamp used for the sentiment is from the For Unto Us stamp set. The pine boughs are from the Merriest Moments Bundle using Old Olive ink and small dimensionals to adhere to white cardstock, covering the top of the twine to make it look like the ornaments are hanging from it. A double bow of Real Red Sheer Ribbon covers the ends of the boughs in the middle. I mounted the assembly on another sheet from the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP and put that on a Red Red card base.
The inside of the card was stamped with a sentiment from Happy Holly-Days stamp set in Real Red. A peppermint die cut from the suite was added to the bottom with a glue dot.
