Deck the halls.

Posted by Michelle on December 14th, 2010 . Filed under: Cards, Christmas, Papertrey Ink, Personal .

Today I’m continuing with our new tradition that my daughter started – making cards for each other.  I’m thinking we’ll open the cards on Christmas Eve since the kids only have 1 gift to open that night – new jammies (another tradition) – it’ll be a nice little something to help lessen the suspense and anticipation of Santa’s arrival.

This is the card I made for my son.  It’s so bright and cheerful – just like him.  He’s got this amazing twinkle in his eyes that just lights up the room.  He’s such a fun and animated little boy.  Papertrey Ink cardstock and stamps; buttons by Papertrey Ink & BasicGrey; misc. gemstones.

    Ack! I LOVE this card! So fun, festive and I love the gems in there too (and the bling on the bottom). I don’t recall this stamp set (no, you do not need this set, you do not need this set…talking to myelf, lol). And I sure hope he’s 100% healed from the surgery, poor thing!
