Holly Twinchie

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  I have a quick little notecard-sized Christmas card to celebrate Loll and Bonnie's new CAS Christmas challenge!  I am way behind on my Christmas cards, so this was a good way to add another to the stash!

Those crazy Jingle Belles also have an "inchie" or "twinchie" challenge--use 1" or 2" images on your card, so I went for a "twinchie"!  Here we go:

I used some Lil'Inker holly dies with Tranquil Tide and Real Red cardstocks, then adhered them to a little panel that I diecut with a Stitched Shape square and embossed with a (really old) Cuttlebug cross-stitch embossing folder.  I added a little gingham ribbon because (sigh) I smudged some red ink on the side when I stamped my Our Daily Bread Designs sentiment.

I mounted my twinchie on a holly-patterned embossed piece of cardstock and mounted it on a Stampin' Up notecard...they come in handy when you want to make a quick little card!  Another one for December!

The wee one was under the weather on Friday...I knew she wasn't feeling well when she agreed to take a nap!  You can barely see her for her stuff animals!  She's all better now!


We're gearing up for another snowy and windy couple of days, so I'm going to try to get my posts all done ahead of time in case we lose power!  Stay safe!  Be blessed and enjoy your day!

This is perfect! It's one of the best CAS cards I've seen. The cross stitch embossing folder was a great find. She's even cute when she's the animals. I hope the snowstorm doesn't affect you. You are a blessing.

All of that embossed texture really brings those white-on-white designs to life ... love the touch of ribbon too ... so very glad you joined us at Jingle Belles.

Gorgeous card, Leanne! Love that embossed background, never seen that one before. And that little Twinchie just finishes it off perfectly! So glad you joined us at CAS Christmas.
