One More from the Stocking Builder Punch

I thought I had posted this card before, but I can't find it on here.  Sorry if it's a repeat.  ... I made this card as a sample right after I got my Stocking Builder punch from Janet.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Netting background stamp!  It makes the card look like a warm flannel blanket.  I tried stamping the Netting stamp with Pretty in Pink ink on Pretty in Pink card stock and it was just too much pink.  I know of three women who are pregnant, but they were all "diagnosed" with having boy babies.  So, I'll have to hold onto this card until the next girl comes along.

Stamps: Netting, Petite Pairs
Paper:  Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Subtles Patterned designer series paper
Ink: Pretty in Pink, versamark
Accessories: white embossing powder,  heat tool, scallop oval punch, large oval punch, white baker's twine, mini clothespins, mat pack, paper piercing tool, Stampin' dimensionals, and the Stocking Builder punch

Tonight Randy and I are going to his work Christmas party.  We've got a $10 gift exchange.  They all play that game where you draw numbers and pass around the gifts, stealing from each other.  We decided this year to give a $10 gift card.  I was going to make a Stocking gift card holder, but didn't have time.  Plus, I ended up having to make a few more quick Christmas cards this afternoon.  (How could that happen???)  So this is what I made:

It's very simple and elegant, don't you think?  You could change the sentiment to create a completely different card.

Stamps: Christmas Greetings
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Simply Scored, Bird Builder punch, sponge, Stampin' dimensionals

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Happy Stamping!

Susan what a darling baby card. I love the clothes line idea. Your cardinal on white looks elegant. Have a blessed Christmas.

The baby card is just adorable and I love the background stamp on it (never thought to try that one...) and your red bird on the branch is beautiful against the clean and simple background! Wonderful cards!
