In the past month of inactivity, I could have been posting all these great Christmas cards I made at our Oktoberfest for Stampin' Up! demonstrators on the Heartfelt Stampers Team! This is one of my favorites. It's probably too late to post very many of them now. And, in all honesty, I struggle to use the Santa Claus cards because I prefer a Christian message.
Anyway, this card uses Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper and the Bells & Boughs stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog, which is good until January 3, 2011. You probably can't see it in this scanned copy of the card, but there is glitter in the centers of each of the pointsettias. The row of vanilla brads is a nice touch, I think. I have come to love the vintage look we can achieve on our cards.
