Featured Swapper: Vickie Waugh

I’m so glad Vickie joined the Great Swaps Girls two months ago – her clean-looking cards are truly wonderful! I found this little gem in her SCS gallery and decided to turn mine into a Christmas card. “Farewell Festive Favorites” could also have been the title of this post, as Stampin’ Up! decided to put this favorite stamp set of mine on the retired stamps list today.

I stamped the little tag with the tree in Always Artichoke ink on Soft Sky and Certainly Celery card stock and on two different sheets of (retired) Wintergreen Designer Series Paper. After cutting everything out, I paper pieced it together again. The sentiment is from the Punch Pals stamp set and was inked up with an Always Artichoke marker. I added a little glitter to the star, and some Crystal Effects to the ornaments in the tree.

Hope you play along with this GSG challenge!
