Christmas Card Advent Calendar #14 – Festive Frolics lamb 1 card


Today's #14 Advent Christmas card features a topper and paper from Papermania's Festive Frolics paper pad (officially retired, but still available on Amazon and some other sites). This is from the same paper pad and topper sheet as #10 and #12.


As with the other two in this series, I cut back the large square topper with a circle die.


What do you think about that polka dot snowflake? Cute, huh? Yes, but darn hard to match anything. I've had them quite a while and was so pleased to actually find something one looked right on. I topped it off with a pink button.

Supply List
Paper and topper image – cardstock, Papermania Festive Frolics
Dies – Die-namics circle stax
Embellishments – snowflake, button

Christmas Card Advent Calendar #13 – Gingerbread Man green theme wreath card

Gingerbread man Christmas card featuring Digi Web Studio Cheryl Seslar Sweet Wreaths topper, by Paperesse.

Today's #13 card uses a pre-colored digital stamp/topper from Digi Web Studio – Sweet Wreaths by Cheryl Seslar (retired). This is from the same set as # 1#7 and #11.


The paper is from Papermania's A4 Jolly Santa paper pack, technically retired, but still working on Amazon, eBay and other sites. The sentiment is my own creation.


I played around with adding ribbon and other goodies to the card design for embellishment, but I so liked the look it had, everything else seemed to clash. I decided to leave it simple with just a wooden button.

Christmas Card Advent Calendar #10 – Festive Frolics owl with pink stocking cap

Festive Frolics Owl Christmas card, by Paperesse.
Today's #10 Advent Christmas card features a topper and paper from Papermania's Festive Frolics paper pad (officially retired, but still going at it on Amazon and some other internet sites).


As I mentioned with my last #9 post's card on which I used this paper, I've had this pad quite a while. There are two sheets in the pad containing four large square images each. I hadn't really considered the potential of these images before, but this year decided it was time to put them to work as toppers.


Of course, I didn't let the images remain as they were, but rather sized each down with a die, like this square one. The sentiment is my own creation. Embellishments are a wooden snowflake, a button, and a bit of matching ribbon.

Supply List
Paper and topper image – cardstock, Papermania Festive Frolics
Dies – Die-namics circle and square stax
Embellishments – wooden snowflake, button, ribbon

Christmas Card featuring Di's Digi Stamps Christmas Bertie, by Paperesse.

Paper is from Papermania's Festive Frolics paper pad, technically retired, but still working on Amazon and some other sites. I've had this paper forever and a day and it's such a nice big pad I haven't been able to use it up!


A little self-adhesive velvet border and pearls give a bit of bling. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly Kim MacFarlane's Twelve Christmas Greetings sentiment sheet. These sentiment sheets are a real time saver and I have about every one Cuddly Buddly has on their site. I used this same exact sentiment on my favorite 2014 Christmas card.
