Elegant Christmas Lace

Good morning everyone,

Life is starting to settle into a school routine for me and my little kindergartener. My little baby going on the bus … like a big boy. How time flies. Before you know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas will also be upon us.

I would like to share with you a Christmas card I made for Creative Clear Stamps.

I love how elegant this has turned out and this is a fairly simple card to make. First, I started with a 5.25″ x 5.25″ card base. Then, with a 6″ x 6″ cardstock, I punched Martha Stewart’s All-A-Round the page double arches punch to create the lacy edging. Stamped and ink the sentiment using Creative Vision’s Holiday Sentiment stamp set. Framed it and embellished it with pearls and flowers.
