Stampin' Up!: March Christmas Cards

If you follow my blog, you know that I having been doing Christmas cards each month so that when the Christmas rush comes, I have one thing done! These are then already to be addressed (I use an Excel document for my address that I keep updated every year) and mailed! 

These are my cards from March. Yes, they were completed in March! I'm very sad that Welcome Christmas is on the retiring list. I have LOVED this set since I first laid eyes on it. It just has a very classic/traditional/vintage Christmas feel to it.

Here's a close up of one. You can see that I embossed the red panel with Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. The ribbon is the polka dotted scallop ribbon but I used the backside of the ribbon so you don't see the polka dots.

Stamps: Welcome Christmas, Short & Sweet
Ink: Basic Black
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Basic Black scallop polka dot ribbon, Petals a Plenty embossing folder, glue dots

You'll see the stamp set Short & Sweet on this card too. It is also on the retiring list! Don't miss out on your favorites that won't be around much longer!

Happy Stampin'!

This makes me want to break this stamp out of the "retiring" bin and use it for my May Christmas cards. Beautiful!
