Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today I am going to show you a super quick and easy card. When you have beautiful paper you can use it as the focal point of your card with just a few embellishments. This is the last card in my Virtual Coffee and a Card class for December. Would you like to see it?
Super Quick and Easy Card
This card was made with the lovely Wonder of the Season paper that is gold and red foil designs with black and red lettering.
All I did for this card is use a base of thick whisper white cardstock, a full card front in real red and then this pretty paper from Wonder of the Season. Finish it off with a pretty ribbon and a brushed metal deer. I fiddled with adding some extra greenery because I first thought it was too simple. In the end I decided that I liked it best just like this. Sometimes less is more.
Adding a Simple Coordinating Gift
We all like to give gifts at Christmas time but it can get cost prohibitive. You can make a simple gift more meaningful and pretty by how you package it. I gave this Lindt chocolate bar to my hairdresser the other day. Truth be told, I was already running late, but I grabbed some of this pretty paper and I found a few embellishments and stamped images laying on my desk and here you have it! The red ribbon is from last year, but that doesn’t matter at all.
In Love Yet?
Have you fallen in love yet with this Wonder of the Season Suite? I hope you can join me every Tuesday in December on my YouTube channel for a live video.

Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. As a child I was enthralled with reindeer and Santa’s sleigh, so these images still tug at my heartstrings. This reindeer and sleigh is no exception. Both images are from the beautiful bundle Wishes & Wonder that I will be featuring for all of my virtual Coffee and a Card classes in December. You can get all the cards for only $25 and participate in the weekly YouTube live videos.
Today is also Remembrance Day and I hope that we all remember to take a minute of silence at 11am to remember the sacrifices that were made on our behalf for our freedom. I am reading a book right now about World War 1 and it unthinkably awful what so many people had to endure. May we never forget!
Reindeer and Sleigh Card
Here is my reindeer and sleigh card, it will be the second card that we make in the month of December. I’m not thrilled with my colouring job on the sleigh but I decided to share it anyways just to show you that I’m not perfect in case you didn’t already know that!
Virtual Coffee and a Card Class
Each Tuesday at 10am EST I will go live on YouTube with one of the cards in your kit. All the cards feature the Wishes & Wonder bundle. The kit will include the die cuts but I cannot include the stamped images. You can use what you have on hand or you can order the stamp set or bundle online using the host code. I am quite pleased with the graphic I made to promote my new class. You may think that as demonstrators we just naturally know how to do these things, but trust me, this old dog is always trying to learn new tricks so that I look more professional.

I have had a YouTube channel for quite a while now but I have never been consistent with posting videos there. That is about to change!! Every Tuesday at 10am I will be doing a live video there and I am looking forward to seeing you there too. You might want to check out my YouTube channel before December 1 so you know how to find me. There are a lot of old videos there that have some great content if I do say so myself. You can check it out by clicking here.
Happy Mail in Holland Contest
I got a message from Gerard today that the first Happy Mail in Holland contest card has arrived! You wouldn’t believe how happy that makes me. When I get there I will have happy mail waiting for me. Oh the love!!! Thanks to Kim Fiore from Ohio. If you want to participate you can send a card to Jackie Bultje, Bloemenlaan 6, 2691 JC, ‘s-Gravenzande, the Netherlands. I will blog about your card and your hometown and you will be entered into a draw for a stamp set.
