Get double duty from your homemade card making by creating all-in-one Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Cards! I borrowed this greeting from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set, which takes care of that.
This adorable trio comes from the Caroling Mice Host stamp set. You can pick it up as an exclusive host offering when you submit an order of $150 or more in my Online Store. Of course, that doesn't mean you have to spend all that by yourself! Collect some orders from a few of your crafty friends and you'll have
enough in no time. And why not schedule a card making get-together, too? After all, stamping can be a lot more fun with friends! 🙂
I colored in the mice with a variety of my Stampin' Blends, and then I framed them with the snowflake frame from the Snowman Dies. this frame is so cut, and you can create a wintry vignette in so many ways with it. I just love it!
After assembling that little scene I layered it over some paper from the Santa Express Designer Paper collection. I thought the “Fa-La-La” pattern was so cute and appropriate!
As I mentioned before, the Merry Christmas & Happy New Year card sentiment came from Kindest Gnomes. I embossed it in white on a strip of black cardstock. Afterwards I gave it a bit of a unique flag edge by using the scallop die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.
Here's another Christmas and New Year handmade card idea.
