Blessings of the First Noel

S2210 - Blessings of the first Noel

Let me introduce you to Blessings of the First Noel, just one of many fun Project examples from Close To My Heart’s 2022 Oct-Dec Idea Book!

Call me ‘old school’ but I just love thumbing my way through a physical catalog or magazine, don’t you? I can easily dog-ear my favorite pages or even write my thoughts next to my inspiration. There’s just something wonderful about having a physical book in my hands. <3

There are so many reasons for me to love the current CTMH Oct-Dec 2022 Idea Book, but I found these 2 cards (above) to be a page-stopper for me. I just love how well the patterns of paper work so well together, and I particularly love the featured color combination. Who would’ve thought to add Green Apple to the mix? So gorgeous!

The Stamp Set used on these cards is the October 2022 Stamp of the Month, which means it’s only available for a very limited time. After that? It’s retired forever!

This Set features 4 Stamps for $19.95, or just $5.00 with a minimum purchase of $50. However, if you’re a VIP with Me you can get this set for FREE at the minimum purchase price.

I think out of the 4 featured Stamps, my favorite is the one that reads, “Wishing you a happy, healthy, peaceful & hug-filled New Year.” It just feels appropriate after everything we’ve all been through over the last several years.

But I’m not really here today to talk about how you can get your hands on this adorable set as much as I’m here to share some project recipes. So, let’s get to it!

Blessings of the First Noel – Card 1 Recipe

I love how simple this card is: one sentiment, a few heart embellishments to help the sentiment ink POP, and a few different paper textures to really help it all come together.
