52CCT June Stash Challenge

This week on 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to make a Christmas card which includes a charm. I don't really use charms although I do have a few lurking in my stash! But are any appropriate?

Here's my card. I stamped the panel using stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp: Holiday Hellos and Clearly Besotted: Framed Sentiments. A bit of a faff to get the spacing even by I think I managed it! Simply matted onto red card stock before adding to the pre-bought dotty embossed card base which I found in my stash too. A double bow and the tag charm added as an embellishment.


  1. A beautiful card Pat - well worth the effort to get your spacing right.

  3. I really like your CAS style here with the traditional Christmas color scheme. The loopy bow and the poinsettia flourishes are great! Thanks for sharing your card with us at 52{C}CT! :)
