Christmas Collage

DSCF4789

I resisted the Christmas Collage background stamp until my friend Georgette used it on a gorgeous card and I was hooked!  My only wish is that the design was exactly the size of a card front…..it’s a little larger than that, so I have to cut something off and it’s all so pretty, I hate to do that!  Anyway, I stamped it in Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake, then used the silhouette family from Welcome Christmas in Cherry Cobbler:

I added a sentiment from Many Merry Messages and I made a triple bow with a Bow Easy using the Very Vanilla seam binding available in the Holiday Mini.  Other than the bow, this was a quick easy card---I layered it on a Cherry Cobbler card base and added a sentiment on a VV panel inside:

  1. What a beautiful Christmas card that made. I love silhouette stamps! Great background in the Crumb Cake (can't get used to not calling it Kraft.)

  2. This card is so simple but I love how you layered the stamps. I would not have known what to do with that big block stamp so I didn't get it but I really love this!

  3. Great card! Love the "crumb cake" on "crumb cake" look and will give it a try soon. Looking forward to see your next card with the "Christmas Collage"-backround stamp. Greetings from Germany, Marion

  12. Oh my goodness, this is such an amazing card. I had overlooked the Christmas Collage stamp too.
    The color combo of this is just stellar and I love the family stamped right over top of the background like that is genius!
