Cardstock Christmas

When the name of your blog has "pieces of paper" in it, a challenge to make a card using only cardstock is just up your alley. And so it was that I had a simply splendid time cutting and embossing several colors of core'dination cardstock to come up with this card based on the Jingle Belles Cardstock Christmas challenge. I love this gingerbread die and it seemed like he was calling out to be used for this challenge. I think he looks quite handsome and am now going to make another card using this die.


  1. oh ♥WOW♥! possibly the best use of texture EVER... seriously, this is like an advertisement for every one of the e/f's involved, b/c i now want ALL of them!!! it is impossible to miss patterned paper when confronted with such a lovely card! yikes!!! ♥

    ps: speaking of AWESOME things made of paper, thank you very much indeed for the gorgeous housewarming card and gift... which yeah... i do make A LOT of lists since we've moved, how did you know?! thanks for thinking of me, that was very nice of you! pss: bonus points for using a line from a "madness" song as sentiment; i love love love it! :) :) :)

  2. That gingerbread man rocks ... seriously, the texture, holly, button & twine work together to really bring him to life ... I love the shading on the edges ... and all of the other textures in your design work together so well ... gotta say this is one of my favorites ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.
