A victorian Christmas?

Probably by card maker standards I am late to the show but I have started working on holiday cards. I discovered the SEI collection Christmas Mint and I'm loving hard on the stamps. The paper is geared more towards scrapbooking otherwise I would have it all over these cards. Instead I purchased the Dewfrost 6x6 paper collection by Memory Box. These are truly wonderful papers - first of all they come in a cellophane bag unattached rather than the traditional paper pad style. Secondly, they ship with 3 of each design, a real money saver in my opinion.

Cardstock and inks are obviously Stampin' UP! This time around I dipped back into the retired In Colors for a little Blue Bayou and Soft Sky. For the tree patterned paper I used the long retired French Script background stamp. I'm really pleased with the card. Watch in the coming days while I try to improve on this card.

Thanks for looking and yes HE stamps!


  1. I love SEI's paper, but I know what you mean about it being more geared towards scrapbooking. Great card (love blue on holiday cards), and way to get started on your Christmas cards.. I haven't yet!

  2. Very pretty, I love how you kept it monochromatic, just beautiful!

  3. Has a very elegant look to it. I really like this card. Need to go check out the paper collection you are talking about.
    Thanks for sharing your work Ben.
