Signed, sealed and delivered ....

.... well not quite delivered!!!  This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays - CFC32 is for us to make a clean and simple card, with matching envelope.  A great idea and I decided to make a set of cards with envelopes - which is what Lynn wants us to make for the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge - WMSCCC11.  Follow this link to find out more about the WMSCCC!














One of Claire's new Christmas sets features a wonderful Santa silhouette and I decided to use that for my CAS design.  The design is reasonably quick to stamp and positioning the stamps accurately is very important, so my stamp-a-ma-jig got a good workout!!!  I stamped the square frame, followed by the Santa silhouette, masked Santa's head and then stamped the snowflake.  Finally, using the same colour as the snowflake I stamped a simple sentiment.  I finished off by making envelopes to go with each card - using the same technique.


Stamps:  Stampin' Up! - Serene Snowflakes; Waltzingmouse - Frame-It, Santa's Coming to Town, Twas the Night Before Christmas, Around Christmastime, Very Vintage Christmas
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black, Lady Bug, Cottage Ivy, Danube Blue, Rose Bud
Accessories:  Stamp-a-ma-jig; Cards from stash

Below are photos of each card and matching envelope - really pleased with this set.  And that's another four towards this year's Christmas Collection.  Only another 12 to go!!!! 





I'm up early today as we're off to the airport to pick up Jonathan; his plane is due in at 8.45am.  I've just checked on line and it's all on time.  And even the weather is being okay - at the moment!!!  The main road is clear - but I think getting off the drive is going to be fun!!  You know, in the sense of scary!  I suppose I'd better get used to driving in ice and snow, especially if we're going to Michigan next year :)  That's all for now - will be back soon.  Have a good day - be safe.

Oh Deb, these are just enchanting, and so very perfect for this month's challenge. Thanks for your year-round support.

Have a very Happy Christmas!

Such a fabulous set of cards Deborah! Thank you for the support about my carpet. I've called a halt to it all now as I think I'd rather relax with my children at home for the holidays. Drive safely won't you. Vx

Super set - love the different greetings on each & I have to say your execution with the positioning is brilliant. I've something similar to a Stamp-a-ma-jig but think I might just have to get the real thing.
