Thanks for joining us on VC Rocks blog hop if you started at the beginning you will be joining us from Nancy’s Fancies, I am sure you enjoyed her wonderful project. My card today is a Christmas Card from the Perfect Punches stamp set in the Stampin Up 2010/2011 Idea Book and catalog. I know it is a little early for Christmas, but I just had to use this new stamp. If you would like to make this card here are the supplies I used.

Newsprint DSP

Very Vanilla cardstock

Stamps: Perfect Punches, Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel

Inks: Real Red, real red marker, early espresso marker

Punches: XL Scallop punch, scallop punch, 1 1/4 ” circle punch

Other Accessories Real Red Satin Ribbon, build a brad (I would use the new vintage brads, but mine have not arrived yet). linen thread Textue plate background Harlequin.

    Too Cute, What a fun card. I like the use of the textured plate for the background!

    Nice card! I, too, cannot wait to ink up that stamp but with the temperature being what it has been I just can't get into a Christmas mood! When I saw you were from Colorado I got all excited! I haven't seen many of us around. But we don't live close enough to stamp together, sadly.

  17. Donna says:

    :{ Kristi, that would have been great if we were able to get together. Where are you in Colorado.
