Believe In The Magic Of Christmas


Merry  Christmas Everyone!!!!

It's Christmas Day already down here in Australia! I must have been a good girl this year as I did very well ­čśÇ

There are many of you who visit my blog regularly, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support throughout the year. Hope you all have a wonderful and safe Christmas!


I recently discovered this fun stamp set using the artwork from Raymond Briggs and sold by the Craft Stash UK. I couldn't resist buying it and adding it to my collection, and after making my card today I am very glad I did. I love how this card turned out.

As you can see I created a Double Z Fold Card. 

Normally when I am creating skies, I start of with white cardstock, but this time around I decided to use a teal colored cardstock. I then applied Distress Oxide inks in Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot to the card.

Once I had added the inks to my back panel, I then splattered the card with water, white paint and Lawn Fawn's Liquid Stardust.


I stamped the chimney, eight times and adhered 4 along the back panel, one of the left side and the other three to the bridges in the middle of the card.

The short panel on the front of the card is a piece of glittered type paper I have had in my stash for years ... I thought that would look like a snowy rooftop. I stamped the footprints along the roof.

I added Santa in his sleigh and the moon to the top part of the back panel.


Here is a look at my card when it is closed, ready to be placed in an envelope.

I used Crafter's Companion's Believe Edge'ables die/stamp set to add the die cut "Believe" along the edge of the card and the coordinating stamped sentiment underneath. I die cut the word "Believe" from red and white cardstock and then offset the red over the white so a white shadow appeared.

I used the "Ho Ho Ho!" die from the Raymond Briggs Stamp/die set to add that sentiment to the top left hand panel.


I added a panel to the back of the card to add a sentiment and a place to write a personal greeting. 

Along the bottom of the panel, I stamped a row of houses. I also stamped the moon and the reindeers to the top part of the card.

Finally I added the "Jingle All The Way" which is also included in the Raymond Briggs stamp set. The Merry Christmas is from MFT Stamps Bitty Holiday  Wishes sentiment set.
