A Very Merry Classic Christmas

Hello BPM Fans! Christmas is just a week away and with the colder weather here, I’m really in the Christmas mood. This year I am made a variety of styles of Christmas cards and classic and vintage ones are always a favorite. Today’s card features the adorable Blank Page Muse stamp called Christmas Joy Holiday Dress designed by Rick St. Dennis

This is the perfect stamp to use for entering a project in the Blank Page Muse December challenge, “Celebrate!” 

For this card, I cut out a couple of flourishes and pine branches out of gold mirror paper using a metal die. You can also use stickers that are similar if you don’t have a these dies or a die cutting machine. I also added some pre-made paper poinsettia flowers. The white mat with scalloped edges is also cut from a metal die. If you don’t have a similar die, use a paper trimmer to cut a rectangle shape. There are many substitutions you can make to decorate your card. You just need this beautiful stamp.
