Memory Box Cottage Gate Frame and Holiday Lamp Post Card…

I’m back today with a Christmas card that is most welcoming!  This NEW Cottage Gate Frame is so pretty!  This is my second card using this die, the first one was Fall several posts back.

I love how the lamp post die fits right there in front of it too!

I used the tips of the branches from the NEW Pine Wreath die and the tips of curved holly branch from the NEW Elegant Holy Double Frame die. I die cut them in Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  I just love how it turned out with the little ribbon bow!  Totally charmed me!

The sentiment is from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Elements stamp set. I stamped it with Ranger Archival Black ink using the MISTI stamping tool.  I’m anxious to use the big background stamp that comes in the set soon. It measures 5 ⅜ x 5 ⅜ inches.  FUN!

The Cottage Gate Circle is popped up with thin Scotch mounting tape. I used a die cut circle from the Circle Basics die set to back the Cottage Gate Circle.  It will go through the mail easily… it’s a 4 ½ inch square card but I’ll mail it in an A6 size envelope. I might change my mind though and do square (I think I have the right postage stamps). lol I forget the plan sometimes. ugh

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you’re inspired to start or keep making Christmas cards…I know I sure enjoy looking at cards and receiving them too!

I’ll be back Thursday with something special! 😀

  1. Pam, I had to jump to your blog and comment on this lovely Christmas card! I have been a huge fan of MemoryBox dies for a number of years. They are beautiful designed and constructed dies. You truly showcased this new die is the most delightful way. It just shouts Christmas!

  2. VERY inviting! Gosh, is this ever cute! The bow on the lamp post is absolutely perfect. It just wouldn’t be the same without it. Love the glow in the lamp, too, and the little bit of holly you added. That gate, sigh… It’s all so pretty!

  3. You do know that looking at this card cost me $200!! Yes it did!! But anyway, it is SO pretty!! I love everything about it, and I’m glad I have everything so I can make it myself!! 🙂

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
