Delftware Inspired Christmas Cards


Freddie Sleijpen's series of beautiful Delftware cards inspired me to try making them. Thank you, Freddie for taking the time to answer a few of my questions regarding the creation of your cards! I really appreciate it! The cobalt blue color is what really attracted me to her series of cards. It's such a beautiful color. For my cards, I used the Blueprint Christmas Stamp Set from Tim Holtz. It's a super quick and easy way to make a card. I will definitely make more cards using this style. I feel a stamp shopping spree in my future! LOL

I wanted to make something special to hold some of their possessions and photos. Cardinals represent visitors from heaven so I thought it would be perfect for the top of the memory box. I loved Jan's design so I decided to use that for the top of the box. Thank you Jan for the wonderful design and inspiration!
