Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today’s card features a saying from Wrapped in Christmas but the focus is really the very fun Trimming the Town paper. This card was a result of the leftovers from the card I made on last Friday’s blog post.
Wrapped In Christmas
Wrapped in Christmas is a beautiful 10 piece cling stamp set with all Christmas sayings that is part of the Heartwarming Hugs suite. I love how this particular saying is long and narrow with a nice bold “JOY”. It really fits the mood of this card.
I thought that a Z-Fold Card would be the perfect way to showcase this mountain paper with the skaters on the pond. The house is perched right on the fold and I used a pretty neat trick to make it work. Simply fold a punched circle in half. Adhere one half to the card with the straight edge of the fold along the fold of the card. Put adhesive on the other half of the circle and adhere to the house die cut.
The measurements for this card are base: 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ scored at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″. The patterned paper is 5 3/8″ by 2″ with a red strip of patterned paper tucked in behind the last panel. That strip was 5/8″ by 5 3/8″.

On Friday I will blog about this awesome new machine. To say that I am in love with it is an understatement. Today the magnetic plate came in and I am super impressed with all the thought that went into it. I just want to leave you with this thought.
