I have a lot of Christmas projects I have been working on in the last few weeks and I can show you them now. It seems funny because today I have been playing around with my new Summer mini goodies.
A few weeks ago I was asked to do a Christmas card for the residents of a local nursing home. The requirements were that it be simple as many have difficulty with their hands. I wasn’t even sure how many would turn up. So, I turned to the ‘Lovely As A Tree’ stamp set. Always a good stand by! I ended up having just over 20 there. One lady was to turn 101 the following week. She was amazing and I have to say was more adept than some of the 90 year olds! You’re never to old to stamp!!!
This is the card we made.
I stamped the front of the card and the Whisper White card with the group of trees in Baja Breeze. The large tree was stamped in front of these on the white card in Night of Navy. The greeting from Teeny Tiny Sentiments was stamped in Rose Red. The white Card was then matted onto Rose Red card and then adhered to the Baja Breeze base. I was so tempted to use Dazzling Diamonds on the large tree. It would have looked nice but we probably would have had a nice mess! They really liked what they did and have asked me back in the new year. So it musn’t have been too bad for them. LOL
