Paper Pieced Christmas Card


I suppose I'm still working in polka dot mode since today's card uses more polka dots. I paper-pieced this Woodware Christmas Date stamp with snippets of retired SU! dsp. and colored in the tiny polka dots with a red glitter pen. The holly berries were done with a Poppystamps stitched holly leaves and berries die, and I ran the entire piece through the Big Shot with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle.

I'm sharing this with the July Rudolph days challenge which runs from July 25th until the end of July.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday.

I'm loving your polka dot phase! Great image, and love the way you've gone out of the box with the fab holly leaves. The berries look like stitched felt and of course the paper piecing is perfect, as always! TFS & Have a great cool week. Hugs

This is lovely, Carol. I think this is my favourite of the woodware stamps! I find it just pops off the page on this lovely card.

This is a lovely large stamp which looks great with the paper piecing Carol and I love the way you have used two different spotted papers and added the die cut berries. It looks really elegant cut with the stitched rectangle too. A really gorgeous card. Thank you for joining us for the July Rudolph Days Challenge. x

I really like the bold date stamp here Carol and I love your paper piecing, dots and spots too. The faux stitching around the edge of your card just finishes it off perfectly. Sandra X
