Merry Christmas!

Hello crafty friends,

Christmas is almost here and I wanted to wish you all merry festivities!
If this is a hard time for you, my heart goes out to you and I hope you will look for and find comfort and help!

Stamps: My Favorite Things (woodplank background, knit pattern), WPlus9 (sentiment)
Dies: Memory Box (deer trio), WPlus9 (merry)
Other: the star is a good old punch

I was trying out my new Altenew star die and decided to make some star ornaments for my bosses. Afterwards I had patterned paper left over and punched out some circles to not waste it. Suddenly it came to me that I could make matching cards for them...
The "merry" and the star are cut out from silver mirror paper to "mirror" the foiled patterns in the paper.

Stamp: WPlus9 (sentiment)
Dies: WPlus9 (merry), SSS (star)
Other: different punches for the circles

I didn't blog that much this year - life has just gotten so busy, I can barely keep up! Thank you for still visiting and leaving sweet comments!

May the peace of Christmas Eve live in your heart all year long!

Be well and keep in touch!

Merry Christmas auch für dich liebe Susanne!
Genieße die schöne Zeit mit deinen Lieben, und für das neue Jahr wünsche ich dir Gesundheit und das du weiter Zeit für kreatives findest.
Einen tollen Einfall hattest du auch bei den Karten, Resteverwertung... toll gelöst!
Ganz liebe Grüße

What a pretty Christmas card, Susanne! Love that you added the red knit pattern to the bottom part. It adds a cozy feeling to the card.
And those star ornaments are fabulous! The shiny foil is festive and pretty. The matching cards are a clever idea. Thanks for your inspiration this year. Looking forward to your wonderful creations in the new year. Merry Christmas! :-)

You are so clever, Susanne! I totally love the first card--thank you so much! Brilliant idea to make the matching cards to go with the beautiful ornaments! Hope you & your family enjoyed a lovely Christmas & wishing you a Happy New Year!

The warm cosy pp is brilliant with your frosty scene of deer, Susanne ... and what gorgeous star decorations! Brilliant idea to use the same pp for those fresh, graphic and oh so pretty cards to go with them! Hope your Christmas was wonderful ... and peaceful! Hugs, Anita :)

My turn to apologize for the late visit... but it’s the nature of the season. 😉 Your family of woodland deer card is beautiful. Great colours and design. And that gorgeous shiny pattern paper is perfect for making star ornaments out of. And so clever of you to make matching cards.
Wishing you health, happiness and prosperity in 2019. Happy new year! 🥂🍾🎉

Auch wieder ganz tolle Kreationen! Die Sterne und die zwei Karten die du mit Resten gemacht hast finde ich besonders schön - was aber nicht heisst das mir die erste nicht gefällt, im Gegenteil!!
