A Festive Fireplace

Today I have a Christmas Card for you.  I know, it’s not even Halloween yet!  But if you are going to make your cards, you need to get started soon, right?  Every year my husband and I send out about 60 to 75 Christmas cards to just our closest friends.  My hubby usually helps me make them by cutting or running the Big Shot for me and then I do all the stamping.  This year, we will have a little head start with the Christmas cards I’ve made and will be making over the next few weeks and sharing with you.  Hope you like them!

Today’s card is a combination of Festive Fireplace and White Christmas.  I cut out the fireplace after stamping it on Smoking Slate in Chocolate Chip.  After stamping and cutting it I used my Aquapainter and dabbed on a little bit of Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip and Delightful Dijon.  Then I trimmed out the banner “Merry Christmas” from White Christmas and strung it from the mantle.  I placed the green garland from Festive Fireplace after using the framelits to cut it out.


The “wallpaper” is a sheet from Farmer’s Market, it’s not even a Christmas paper.  🙂 But whose house has Christmas wallpaper, right?  Then I strung a little bit of the Real Red Pom Pom trim across the top.


Sorry the picture is so dark, you’d think it would be brighter, seeing it’s a FIRE in a fireplace!  LOL But I did stamp it twice, once in chocolate chip on chocolate chip and once in chocolate chip on Cajun Craze.  Then I trimmed the fire away from the logs and then glued them onto the chocolate chip one.  I know that’s a lot of trimming by hand, but I just love the look.  You could just stamp on Cajun Craze and color the log portion in with Chocolate Chip.


Here’s another look at the entire card.  If you’d like to create your own, I’ve listed all the supplies needed at the bottom of the post and you can purchase them here.

Now, go and create something sweet for somebody!
