Dynamic Christmas Card

Happy Remembrance Day!  Today is a great day to stop and remember.  To stop and be thankful for our freedom and the cost at which it came.  I am thankful for my Grandpa who fought for our country in the second world war.  I am thankful for the thousands of men and women who currently serve for our freedom world wide.  I thank the families who allow their loved ones to serve with honour.  Please take a moment today to be thankful and remember.

Today's card is for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge.  I am ashamed to say that I do not own anything Sahara Sand.  How is that even possible?  Especially for a Demonstrator?  Shameful I know.  I had to substitute Crumb Cake for the Sahara Sand.  I love the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set.  It has to be one of my favourite sets from the Holiday catalogue - especially with those coordinating dies!   I stamped the longer ornament on Crumb Cake using Versamark then used clear embossing powder so the ornament looks a bit darker.  Another shameful confession...I just discovered that there was very vanilla seam binding!  How on earth did I miss that one?  Now that I have it...I can't stop using it!!!!  

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Petite Pairs (Sentiment)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark
Other: Basic Pearls, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Holiday Ornament Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!



  1. Those ornaments are just beautiful, great card.

  2. No Sahara Sand?!?! Isn't it funny how we have "our" colors. I ADORE this card! Between the embossing, ribbon, and ornaments I think it's simple yet stunning...and I'm on the hunt for a Christmas card I can crank out a few of!:) Thanks for playing with us at Dynamic Duos.

  3. I must admit that I didn't own any Sahara Sand either...I made a quick purchase when I saw this upcoming challenge! You card conjurs up feelings of a classic christmas. So Pretty! Thanks for joining us over at Dynamic Duos this week!
