I can't tell you how excited I am to finally own a German stamp set - and by Stampin Up no less! I tried two years ago to get one from some SU demonstrators in Germany and they were not allowed to ship out of the country. Then this year, low and behold, SU offered German stamps in this country! This set is called "Wunderbare Weihnachtsgrüße". I'm not sure what the english version is, but it means "Wonderful Christmas Greetings".
I made a set of six of these to give my mother on her birthday so that she could send them to the relatives in Germany. They are going in the mail to her today.
I needed to keep these fairly embellishment free so that the postage wouldn't be outrageous for her, but it wasn't easy! I cased a fall card by Birgit that I found on Pinterest and left off the ribbon and liquid pearls. The cardstock is Bazzill Diamond and I must say, that's what makes the card. I tried Whisper White and it just wasn't the same. The other colors are Pacific Point and Marina Mist. I'm not sure what the lightest color is. The snowflake punch is Fiskars.
I will be entering this in the following challenges:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Ch 22 No Red or Green
Christmas Stampin All Year Long - Ch 37 Simply Christmas
Crafts 4 Eternity - R145 Clean and Simple
Oh! and here is Mom's birthday card:
It's an adaptation of a card I made at an Archiver's class.
Thanks for visiting!
