We Wish You a Merry Christmas

I already bought many Christmas collections early in the season and told myself not to buy any more Christmas papers, but when I was at Paper & Pictures at the end of October I couldn't resist buying the We R Memory Keepers Merry & Bright collection. I love the colors and designs of this collection. Here are two cards that I made with the papers.



On the second card I used one of the Background Basics: Diamonds stamps from Papertrey Ink to create a stamped background on the pink paper.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper, die-cuts: We R Memory Keepers Merry & Bright Twine: Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream) Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Signature Christmas, Background Basics: Diamonds) Ink: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy) Tools: Martha Stewart Embossed Scallop edge punch, sewing machine Other: foamtape

I'll be back tomorrow with a card that I made for our youngest sweetheart who will turn 7 tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day!
