let heaven and nature sing


The challenge this week on PTI's Make It Monday blog grew my stash of both Christmas cards, tags and use of hoarded pattern paper books. I currently own five holiday 6 x 6 paper pads, two of which have never been touched and are not recent purchases. I took Laurie's tips on setting up an assembly process and began with a few sheets of last year's Treetops Glisten paper pack. They were die cut with a stitched rectangle and adhered to 4 green tone A2 cards, 3 horizontal and 1 vertical orientation. The birds and sentiment are from the recent PTI Christmas Faith stamp/die set and banner from the Tag Sale: Quilted. 


Card Menu:
Stamps: PTI Christmas Faith, Oopsie Daisy (dotted string for star buttons)
Dies: PTI Christmas Faith, Tag Sale: Quilted; Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles
Paper: PTI Treetops Glisten, color card stock, My Mind's Eye (birds)
Misc: star buttons, wood star, WOW White embossing powder, Versamark Ink

I used the same system to make four tags using a PTI Christmas Tree and Basic Bookmark 2 dies, My Mind's Eye Vintage Christmas (older than the hills) pattern paper pad, sentiments from Hero Arts and PTI's 'Tis the Season, black/red ink, sparkly Stickles and seam binding.

  1. Fantastic cards and tags! You got a lot done!

  2. Vikki, you're an overachiever with four cards and four tags! Great use of patterned paper with the doves and ideal sentiment. Your bookmark tags are adorable, too.

  3. Lovely Cards, Vickie ! I also like your tags because i also own the Tree Die and not used it for a long time. Thanks for the Inspiration.
