First Christmas Hop with GKD!


first christmas hop

It’s time to hop around with GKD DT and CSS using Asela’s new First Christmas stamp set. 

For my first card, I wanted to combine a few sets to make little ornaments on a tree.  I used Winter Foliage for the ‘tree’, mini framed friends for the dog & cats in the small ornaments from First Christmas and sentiment from Festive Frame.  This represents our dog Shelby and two cats Chica & Elsie (but the only true color representation is the black & white cat-oh well!) I still like how it turned out and on the inside (sorry I didn’t take a photo) is the gingerbread couple to represent all of us.  I added various colored rhinestones to the tree to act as ‘lights’.  This card was fun to make because I love combining stamps to showcase their versatility! 

gingerbread frameMy next card is another vintage card I made with the same colors as my vintage deer card from a few days ago but with the gingerbread couple from First Christmas inside the Festive Frame
