DOstamperSTARS Challenge #161: Home For Christmas Quilt Card

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a Home Sweet Home challenge.

I really like this week's home inspiration photo...beautiful holiday decor.  Reminds me of my Christmas tree.  We put it up a couple of weeks ago with the help of our grandsons.  It's a holiday tradition where they spend the night and decorate the tree with us.  We also typically go out for dinner and look at the neighborhood lights along the way.  I haven't shared their photos in awhile, so you might be surprised at how big they are getting.  Max is now 8-1/2 and Sammy is 6-1/2.

But I digress...back to the card.  Recently one of my YouTube readers suggested making a Christmas themed quilt card and I thought that was a great idea.  So I reached for the fabulous holiday, Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper for today's card.  The images on these papers are perfect for a quilt card, as you can showcase so many of the cute holiday images on just one card!

See how cute that is!  Just use your 1" square punch to crop right in on the perfect array of images!

If you're anything like me, you have scraps of pattern paper laying around just waiting to be used.  Now you can use them up!

In the meantime, don't forget that some (including today's stamp set and paper) of your favorite Holiday Catalog items are retiring and some are on sale too.
