Polka Dot Christmas Card

This is it…this polka dot christmas card is the LAST card I made in our current house!  I got up this morning and got to stamping and as I type this, I am wondering – just how many cards have I made in this room?

There are normally at least three projects a week on my blog.  At least three projects made a week for Stamping Family.  There are over 30 cards from the Friday Flip – and each of those was made a couple of times.  At least 50 projects from online classes – and several of those made of each card.  Then there is my stamp club, then I used to do a lot of live classes here and all of those cards.

We have been here for over 6 years and at least 1,000 cards have been made in this house.  I don't think it would hit the 2,000 mark, but well over 1,000.

How many dimensional backing have I picked up off this floor?  How many brads will I find buried in the carpet?  How dusty will my epoxy stickers that flew off my counter and slid (and STUCK!) behind my cabinets before I ever used them?

I never made a video at my last house, so that means that all of the 1700 videos I have made – that's right, over 1700 videos have been made in this very room.  If you aren't subscribed to my channel YouTube, you really should be :).

In this room, I taught my daughter to stamp.  To go with her gut and simple create.

In this room, I have cried in frustration – usually in regards to technology, I have learned, I have shared, I have grown.  I have had breakthroughs, had failures, bonded with friends and had a ton of laughs.  It is also in here that the 10 Second Bow Maker received its official name.

If this little room could talk, it would probably ask to be vacuumed more.  It would probably wish that it was all painted, we never pulled out the cabinets to paint (but it will get done for the new owners this week).  It would thank me for the crown molding, because it made it feel special.  It would ask to be loved by the new owners, the way that I have loved it.   There is not a square inch of this room that hasn't held stamps, paper, glitter, glue, ribbon or buttons.

This room will probably miss the 80's music, the new owners don't seem the 80's music type.

There are a lot of memories in this little room of mine.

So with that, here comes the last card write up from this little room I call my office…

Today was all about using as few supplies as possible!  Most of my goodies are packed up and ready for their journey to the new house.

I kept out all my card stock and paper – most of the stamps and just a handful of accessories.

I went with the Merry Moments paper – and I love this particular pattern because it has SO many colors to it and because it is polka dots!

Each square was backed with a different color of card stock before being layered onto the Whisper White layer.  The sentiment was stamped in Real Red and layered onto a different color circle.

With all the different layers on it, I wanted to keep the rest of it very simple.

A simple Whisper White satin ribbon tied in a very small bow and attached on top of a strip of the same ribbon that runs the width of the card front.

The base is a simple Old Olive.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
