What the...?  December?  How?  Whaaaaa?  I said this in November, but really, this year really IS going way too fast!!

I feel bad admitting this but when I saw the stamp set Fun with Christmas I hated skipped it.

Not for me.

...but once I stamped the fox in gold on the vanilla cardstock for the envelope liner I was S O L D.  I am so in love with this set now!  Seriously!  And the gold Encore! pad??!!  I haven't even put it away.  It just stays on my desk.

I put SNAIL, Glue Dots, and Dimensionals under random punched circles to give my card a little bit of dimension.

When the light hits the gold ink just right it shines like crazy.
I'm in love. 

To get the washi tape circles, just lay strips on carstock first and then punch out.
Did you know that the Washi tape is a patter than can be connected when aligned properly?  You can make BIG circle punches and it still looks like one piece of paper.
 Go, Washi!

  1. STOP IT!! This is freakin' adorable!! What a fun twist to put the little fox with the gold. You are so smart!

  2. Oh my gosh! This is totally adorable! Oh my!

  3. I did not think that anyone could make me like that set. Really. Seriously! But now I find myself having to resist the urge to go buy it RIGHT NOW! :)

  4. Jane, you have won me over with this set! I seriously had to laugh when I first saw it in our box, because me and a friend had a discussion about the Lays chips mistletoe, and the nerdy snowman, and the. . . but I really LOVE this card! You did a super fab job creating something so fun and gorgeous with this "iffy" set!

  5. So, so cute!! I didn't like this set either…until now! What an incredible job you did making this classy & fun at the same time.

  6. Thanks for sharing your washi tape advice!

  7. that is stinkin' cute. good job Jane!
