Handmade Christmas. Unity DT Tuesday

Hello all!

I've been dying to make something Christmas related... (needed a break from Halloween stuff! Of course, I'll definitely have more Halloween projects to share!) and thought that I'd play with one of my recent stamp set purchase, 25 days of Christmas.  This set is so my style... a little vintage, and has a good mix of sentiments, images, and of course, pennants!

I had some beautiful Christmas papers from Echo Park (Season's Greetings) that I thought that it would go perfectly with these stamps, and decided to create a bit of a collage kinda card!


I just love making these types of cards - full of embellishments and detail! (It's a great way to show off my Unity stamps, too!) I added some stitching, inking and distressing of the borders by hand crumpling it.


With the pennants, I paper pierced each that was stamped onto various papers. They look so lovely! Oh, and speaking of pennants... have you seen the NEW Unity Challenge of the Month yet? I'm hosting that one, and it's anything PENNANTS and BANNERS, so yeah, come and link up all those beautiful Unity projects! I would LOVE to see!


I love clustering embellishments together... adds so much interest to the card!

I am all for making handmade Christmas cards and have been doing them for the past 10 years. Kinda stresses me out trying to make so many, but always feel so proud of my accomplishment, too!

"From home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another
The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other."

Hope that you loved my card, I'll give you the links to the stamps I used in case you want to add them onto your wishlist!
