Tidings of Comfort & Joy

I recently received the new Stitched Framelits and I. Am. In. Love.  I have (what you could call) a matting obsession.  I love to matt different elements on my card, sometimes multiple times.  I feel my card almost looks undone without it.

Having said that, I think the Stitched Framelits are so stunning in and of themselves, that they don’t need to be matted.  You’ll see them a few times over the course of my coming posts.

My card today uses Very Vanilla as a base.  On the Very Vanilla, I stamped the “sparkle” stamp from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set in Garden Green.


On top of the Whisper White I placed a pattern from the This Christmas DSP.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Garden Green and cut it out using one of the Stitched Framelits.


Underneath the sentiment, I curled some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine.  I also added three Garden Green pine needles and a pinecone using Chocolate Chip underneath and Crumb Cake on top from the coordinating Perfect Pines Framelits.



The inspiration for my card today comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

  1. This is such a beautiful card! I have overlooked this paper pattern, because in a great big piece is isn’t my favorite… but you have made it look SO good on your card, I will have to reconsider it! Thank you for the inspiration!
