Christmas card featuring QKR Stampede Anywhere South digital stamp

Christmas card featuring QKR Stampeded Anywhere South digital stamp, by Paperesse.

This little birdie is hitching a ride south – or faire du stop as it's called in French – somewhere warm for Christmas. I masked the QKR Stampede's Anywhere South digital stamp English sentiment and replaced it with a French one 'Un endroit chaud' (somewhere warm), as it will be going to a French speaker.

Paper is from Folia's Motifblock Christmas paper pad. Folia Paper is a German company and is easily found in Switzerland. I like these paper pads as they're very big 24cm x 34cm and most pads have two sheets of each design – one thin sheet of 80 g/m2 and a very sturdy one at 270 g/m2. Although, this particular Christmas pad only has the heavier 270 g/m2.

I kept the embellishments simple with a little ribbon and more of the felt brads I used on this Santa Selfie Christmas card. I'm really enjoying these brads. There are 20 assorted colors in a pack and were priced only €0.50 at my favorite outlet shop! I scooped up four packs; now I'm wishing I'd bought more. Of course, that I paid so little for them adds to my pleasure.

*Crafty Tip* To use brads as you would enamel dots or buttons, use a jewelry wire cutter to cut off the brad tines at their base, then use a little Aleene's Tacky Glue to glue them down.
