is your life manic?

Well, is it? I know everyone is super busy these days so you're probably thinking, I just don't have time to make card, in particular Christmas cards...because I need a lot. Well I'm here with another nice, quick and easy Christmas card for you! 

And don't forget, everyone needs a little bit of relaxation away from busy days and life. Why not let a spot of crafting be your "escape" zone?! If you'd like a more social activity, invite a couple friends over, have a glass of wine or cuppa (it'll be cheaper than a take away, meal out or night on the town!). Or if you have kids why not get them involved - they'll love it and it will create a great bonding session and activity for you to do together away from video games, computer or the tv!

Christmas Accents

Stamp Set: Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Early Espresso,
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade
DSP: Festival of Prints
Big Shot: Apothecary Accents Framelits
Accessories: Brushed Bronze Button
Baker's Twine: Cherry Cobbler

I'm really liking these Apothecary Accent framelits at the moment, They are perfectly designed to use individually but equally work well by layering them up! They easily cut up to 3 pieces of DSP/cardstock at one time which means making cards in bulk is super easy and simple! I've used a button here as an embelishment but why not use a small stamped image, ribbon strip or a few rhinestones/pearls for a more postal friendly embellishment?! 

If you like the look of this card and would like to give it a go why not drop me a message and I would be glad to help you with all that you'll need to make as many as you need! Seeing as these framelits aren't Christmassy they will get used throughout the year making them an excellent purchase!!

Happy Stampin',
