LOVE the design! I just pinned it on Pinterest !

Okay, I am dim. I thought that the ribbon tying the candy canes and bells was faux and was like HOW DID SHE MAKE IT LOOK SO REAL? Heeee! Your cardstock ones look real, but the real ribbon looks really real. OMG, I had too much coffee today! Did I mention I love this layout? :)

These are so darling, Anna. I wish I could leave blank space. I love it when I see it, but when I create it, I am just not happy and end up doing so much more work filling it in than is necessary!! What wonderful samples to tempt me to try again! Thanks for the smaller size tip, too.

I finally figured out faux stitching! :) Thanks for posting this card. I needed one more idea for our card exchange next week at our Christmas party. I'm going to use a pair of die-cut mittens.
How is the bronchitis?


Simple + beautiful = perfect! Love these.

Great faux ribbon! Also love the spritz of sparkle. Now to try some 4.5 x 3.5 cards.

Hi Bev,
I pick up the craft spray glitter at WMart, and Ive seen it at JoAnn, Ms, Hobby Lobby, etc.
Its in an aresol spray can, like paint. But its just glitter. :)
Comes in silver, gold, and pearl ... those are the colors I see locally, anyway.

Be careful if youve used Stazon ink on your project tho ... the alcohol in the spray will make Stazon ink bleed.

Cluck, cluck!

Neat ribbon idea, trick! Where do you get your craft glitter spray? Thanks.

What a clever way to replace ribbon! These are adorable.

Adorable!!! :)

Oohh I love this! The faux stitching adds so much dimension and depth to the paper and really looks like ribbon. Again, you've presented a technique I would like to try. Thanks for sharing!


You are BRILLIANT! Thank you for directing me to that awesome tutorial! *mondo squishy hugs*

These are such adorable cards! Makes me not wanna go to work today--I want to stay and play in my craft room.

I love the look of these. The candy cane being my fav! I really should make my cards this size too, as I have 2 boxes of envelopes that size. (They where much less expensive than the A2 size!) Have a wonderful Wednesday, hugs...

Hi Julie!
I sure do have a favorite tool for faux stitches!
I use seamstress tracing wheels. I wrote a short tutorial for High Hopes about them, and you can find it here:

Its a tool that NEVER gets put away .... its ALWAYS on my desk, ready at a moments notice! :)

Cluck, cluck!

Totally love these, Anna!!! Hey, what do you like to use for your faux stitching? I sometimes use a pen, sometimes I use the EK Success Piercing Bug, yadda yadda. Do you have a tool you like?
