Christmas Crunch Sunday #5

The miracle of Christmas! :) Funny thing to be saying in January, but hey! You've gotta get in the mood if you're to be making Christmas cards.

I love this patterned paper from October Afternoon. You can use it in so many ways, there is a sheet with rows of different houses which you can cut into individual sections to use on cards, a good way to maximise the use of your stash.

Solid cardstock: Bazzill Bling - Blank Check, SU! Old Olive, Real Red
Patterned paper: October Afternoon, Very Merry
Stamp: Whimsy Stamps - Holiday Ticket Sentiments
Die: Whimsy Stamps - Ticket Die
Ink: SU! - Old Olive, Real Red
Ribbon: Giseka Graham - 39545
Embossing Folder: Sizzix Basic Grey - Snowglobe
Tools: 2" circle punch, Fiskars - Scallop Sentiment Punch
Miscellaneous: brown fineliner, Stickles - Diamond

I have found that SU! cardstock, the smooth stuff anyway embosses with Sizzix folders really well!! Like.. deliciously well! :) Yum.

Thanks for stopping by. :) xo
