Christmas Eve was a Night of Song

I love this quote.  It makes you slow down and read.  Whether you sing or not, it leaves you warmed.  You have a tiny smile on your face.
Christmas Eve was a Night of Song is another of our brand new rubber stamps.  It comes as part of a set with a companion stamp that simply says Merry Christmas. 
I let this gorgeous Bo Bunny Paper do a lot of the "heavy lifting" for me.  I love it's woody, wintery look.  The pink cardstock adds a little pop and the jute twine (left over from bookbinding projects) helped keep that outdoor rustic look. 

Here is how you can make this card!


Quietfire ChristmasEve was a Night of Song - Set of 2 Stamps
Bo Bunny - Winter Wishes Collection Pack 6x6”
Bazzill Cardstock – Tutu Rose
Core’dinations Cardstock – Nostalgia

Staples White Cardstock
Imagine Crafts VersaMagic – MidnightBlack
Advantus Ideology Tim Holtz Metal Wire Pins

Scrapbook Adhesives EZ Runner Permanent Strips
Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam Tape
Stamp positioner

1.      Form a 6 x 7” side fold card base from Nostalgia cardstock.
2.      Use a patterned cardstock with a faint pattern, so it doesn’t compete with the fine lines in the lettering, and cut a 3 x 4” panel. Use a stamp positioner to stamp quotation in Midnight Black VersaMagic.  Mat this panel with the darkest colour cardstock in the collection and mat again with white cardstock. Adhere all these layers together.
3.      Cut another mat from pink cardstock and adhere with foam tape.
4.      Trim the background birches cardstock to 5.5 x 6” and adhere it to the card base with foam tape.
5.      Adhere the sentiments panels slightly off to the left of center as shown in the photo and adhere with foam tape.
6.      Form a bow with the jute, add the pin (these always make me think of kilt pins!) to the center and adhere to the card front as shown.
7.      Smile with satisfaction!  All done and ready to send to someone special.
I suppose it could be added to the Music stamps on the Quietfire site! (Note to self - do it!).  I hope this card gives you some ideas of your own!
Happy creating! Suzanne
