52 CCT24-19 Scandinavian Peace

 Happy Tuesday, peeps! Sorry, another Christmas card for you...I promise I'll stamp something else here soon!  The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown wants a Scandinavian theme:

and there was an older SU hostess set called Northern Hearts that always reminded me of that sort of design.  I paired it with a Tim Holtz Deer Knit embossing folder and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp for this:

The image was stamped in Real Red on a Spotlight on Nature diecut, then mounted on a diecut scallop as well.  The sentiment was stamped below and I added a Real Red heart, diecut with the Give It a Whirl die, as well as a little red bow that was sitting lost and lonely on my desk:

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Brightest Glow as well as a snowflake from the Northern Hearts set:

I love crisp white and bright red together for Christmas, don't you?  Another to add to my stash!

We went to a family get-together over the weekend and I got to see Jameson & Sawyer's little sister Maven---she's now four months old!

Dana got her baby-holding fix too!

Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

Such a pretty card, LeAnne! I remember this stamp set (and I think I still have it) and love the design! The embossed panel brings it all together! Awww, Maven is such a cutie....just like her 2 brothers!

I DO love a bright red and white card for Christmas, LeAnne! This is so lovely and has just the perfect amount of texture and embellishments that won't mess up the mailing!
You know me and words - just love that inside sentiment.

Maven, you are a beauty! I wonder if those tan overalls come in my size?
