Hello! I made today’s cards during my Annual Christmas Card and Sister Retreat. That’s a bit of a mouthful!
Every year in October I meet my two sisters in Southern California for a crafting weekend. Usually we meet at a cabin at Big Bear Lake, but this year the plan was to go to Palm Springs. Unfortunately, our plans were upended at the last minute and we spent our retreat at my sister’s beautiful Southern California home instead.
I was definitely in a “rustic” mood as most of the time I reached for Crumb Cake for my card bases. For this card I used the Buffalo Check stamp to create these amazing Real Red and Garden Green and Memento Tuxedo Black backgrounds.
The house is from the I’ll Be Home stamp set. The detail is just gorgeous and I love how it looks uncolored on the buffalo check background.
The sentiment is from the Alpine Adventures stamp set. To add a final touch, I included a couple of Joyous Noel glimmer paper sprigs and some white enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by!
