Visions of Sugar Plums!

Oh dear! Can you believe it's December already!!! I really need to get moving on my Christmas shopping and decorating. I probably should get busy making my Christmas cards too! Time flies when you're having fun and this week I'm having LOTS of fun helping take care of my granddaughters! So I guess I won't get much accomplished this week, oh well, it's worth it!

Our Stampendous Design Team theme this week is "Sugar Plum Wishes and Angel Kisses!".
This sweet House-Mouse Design called Nestled in Bed fits the theme perfectly. Can't you just image the sugar plums dancing through their dreams!

  1. Fold a 7" x 10" piece of blue cardstock in half to form a top-fold card.
  2. Stamp the Filigree on the top of a 4 3/4" x 6" piece of white cardstock with Bamboo Leaves, use a 1/2" brush to add more green to the background.
  3. Tape a 2 1/4" x 6" piece of kraft cardstock near the bottom of the filigree and color with BR2 and BR5 to look like a wood floor, add a strip of blue cardstock across the middle, then two pieces of Yellow May Arts ribbon across the blue, add to the front left of the card.
  4. Stamp the Peace On Earth on a  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock and color with Chameleon pens, trim to 4" x 5 1/4", mat on a blue mat 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".
