My card today is recreated from one I found on Pinterest by Pam Staples. I loved it so much that I pretty much copied it exactly, with the exception of the size, opening, and one item she used that I didn’t. Usually when I CASE a design that I find on online, I try to change it up to make it my own, but this one I thought was perfect as is! The only differences between hers and my version are that her original card was square and opened like a tent, and had silver metallic thread behind the sentiment. I kept mine a standard size card (5-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches) that opened left to right, and did not use the metallic thread, but honestly, I didn’t use it only because I was out and didn’t have any! I love the bright red and white contrasted with the silver foil of the snowflakes and stars. And you already know how much I LOVE the Watercolor Christmas stamp set! I am SO sad that it is retiring!
I am grateful every day that so many talented crafters share their work with the rest of us, so that we can be inspired and get ideas with just a few clicks of the keyboard! This card was one of many that I made for my son’s school Christmas Bazaar, and I love its clean and simple design. I needed a bunch of different cards FAST, and Pinterest was a life saver the week I made them! Thank you to Pam and the many other demonstrators and crafters that I borrowed ideas from this year! 🙂
