Christmas Cards | Pinkfresh Christmas Card Drive | Altenew Stamps | First Card

We need a little sparkle and shine today, right now it is raining.  I have been wanting to do a few more cards for the Pinkfresh Christmas card drive before I send them off.  Hoping to make the box as full as I can.  I had used these Simple Shapes Altenew stamps recently in my Bible journaling.  I have always loved this stamp set.  When I was on the Altenew team, I made a layout with them, but with inspiration hitting, I sat down to create some Christmas cards.

I did three cards, but sharing the first one today.  This first idea was to stamp along the edge using just the solid shapes.  The color inspiration came from the Bella Blvd Make Your Mark Paper Pad.  I used an old October Afternoon sentiment to emboss in gold.  Die due the panel and completed my card.

My card base is white, but I really wanted that pattern paper to show since it went so well with the stamping, so I cut the pattern paper the same size as the card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Will be back soon with the next one!
