HSS #97-An Old Fashion Christmas

It's Hand Stamped Sentiments Time! This week challenge is a cute one!



This weeks challenge is an "Old Fashioned Christmas". Create a card that shows us what this means to you. Have fun!!!


I had trouble getting a good picture. It's been dark and dreary here for days! However, I really do love this card! I have wanted this stamp set for years, but always talked myself out of it. not sure why! This is the first time I am using it. LOVE IT!  I cut my card base 4 1/4" X 9" and scored it at 4 1/2". I cut the new Label Framelit shape (new!!! I am IN LOVE with this new product available January 1!) and wanted it to stick up off the card, but it's no higher than 5 1/2" so that it will still fit in an envelope. And what do you think of that ribbon? It is also upcoming in the Occasions Mini. It comes already pleated! Awesome!

Stamps: Winter Post
Ink and Paper: Red Riding Hood, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede,Early Espresso, Garden Green,  Red Riding Hood DSP
Other: Big Shot, Framelits Label Collection (Coming soon in the new Occasions mini!), Small Tag Punch, Stocking Accents Die, Red Riding Hood Pleated Satin Ribbon (also in the new mini!), Cherry Cobbler Twine, Small Jingle Bells

So what stamp set do you have that would make a wonderful "Old Fashion Christmas" card? Get creative! Then, come back to Hand Stamped Sentiments and share with us! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Tuesday!
