Crumb Cake Christmas Card

The very Patricia is hosting this month's challenges at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and she kicks off with this fab sketch

This is such a lovely sketch - you can really go to town with backing papers and layers or keep it clean and simple - here's what I did with it

Now I don't know if any of you have had the chance to peruse the new catalogue (sneakily placed in my side bar) but you may have noticed the lack of Christmas stamp sets so I'm afraid I've had to resort to a retired set - Come to Bethlehem. The gorgeous sentiment is current though - phew!

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Come to Bethlehem, Delightful Dozen
Ink: Crumb Cake, Real Red
Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red, Crumb Cake

  1. This is simply gorgeous. I do like red, kraft and white - very classic. I like the square card works perfectly.

    BTW - I like the new look blog!

  2. Hi Jacqueline, I have yet to use this stamp although I do love it. I really like how you have stamped it on Kraft and red and Kraft is always a winner to me!

  3. Great colour combination of the crumb cake with red. I thought it odd there were no christmas stamps in the new catalogue but guess there will be a seasonal special mini cat later on. First time I typed this it disappeared so hope you don't get it twice!

  4. This is so elegant! LOVE the beautiful colors and that is one of the stamp sets I've always wanted to get! HUGS and hope you have a great rest of the weekend! :)

  5. Hi Jacqueline, what a lovely Christmas card, the red and kraft combo is wonderful and that sentiment looks fab underneath the curve of the image!

    Roll on the SU! Autumn/Winter catty eh?!

    Hope you're enjoying the sunny, summery weekend! Ruth x

  6. What a lovely and elegant card,

  7. Love the classic red, kraft and white color scheme! :) I agree with Ruth - the scripty sentiment goes really well with the curvy baseline of the image. Very nice! :)

  8. Wow Jacqueline what a fab new look for your blog! I like your Christmas card too in those colours and with that classic image. There are Christmas stamps available from the last AW catalogue of course and there'll be loads of new ones coming up soon! Vicky x

  9. Love the new look blog! and the card is gorgeous - red, white and kraft is an awesome combination. It's a shame that stamp is retired, it's one of my favourites as it is so versatile and yet very traditional.

  10. I love that you made a square card with this sketch! You might have noticed that I'm a bit partial to square cards lately :o)

    PS Really lovin' the new look of your blog. Congrats!
