Early Christmas Present

I got a really COOL early Christmas present when I got home one day this week. Thank You Kathi!!!!

I got this really cute stamp set in the present and had to use her immediately. Isn't she just ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!
I used the Spellbinders Creative Book templates to create the different shaped layers. For the blue outline of the inner one, I taped the die to the paper and then used an exacto knife to cut out the paper on the outer edge. It gives it a slight border. Once assembled it needed something else, so I added the pearls around the outer edge of the plaid paper.
I have a couple of other Christmas cards I have done recently too using some Elizabeth Bell designs. These used the traditional red and green.
OK... Now I need to go be all crafty and creativey. I hope you have a great weekend (and your football team wins).



  1. The Christmas cards are definitely cute, but I am totally head over heels in love with the little elephant. I am going to start collecting those right away. They remind me of the Babar books from when the kids were little and now I have a niece named El - she must have cards with these adorable images.

  2. Adorable cards! I love the pearly bling.

  3. See? I knew you'd work wonders with that stamp set! That's why you had to have it!

    All three cards are absolutely fabulous. Look at you getting a head start on Christmas!!!
