Homespun Christmas


Well it’s still the end of November but everywhere you go, it is Christmas!  This week the theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop is ‘Homespun Christmas’.  To me this is project with a very country feel.  I have a fun card for you today!


Doesn’t this feel all warm and cozy?  It does to me!

Here’s the details…

  • Early Espresso – 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Crumb Cake – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp Ho, Ho, Ho in Real Red, snowflake cluster in Crumb Cake and star in Basic Blake to create a ‘background’ paper, sponge edges in Crumb Cake and add to card front
  • Cut out tree in Early Espresso and Real Red and add to card front
  • Whisper White – 1 x 5, stamp greeting using Real Red and Early Espresso, add to card front
  • Multi-colored dotted (Candy Cane Lane dsp) – 7/8 x 1 1/2, cut into a banner, add to card front

  1. When I hear homespun I think “country”, too and you achieved that country feeling with your card. Now where’s my quilt to curl up under? Lol

  2. Love your background paper you stamped – live the country feel. I believe your measurement is off for the crumb cake piece. I believe you meant it to be 3 5/8″. I am going to try my hand at stamping my background- I always forget about that.
