  1. The card is superb… I wait every monday, wednesday and friday whole day for your card video as i stay in India. Its 9pm in india now. This holiday season i am going to get married to my boyfriend, so its best gift…..

  2. Nice card. My most memorable gift was a yellow sweater I got for Christmas when I was 29 from my dad. It's memorable because my dad had passed away that Sept and it was the only gift he had a chance to pick up and it was for me. That was 28 yrs ago.

  3. Cute, cute card! Love it.
    My most memorable/favorite gift, my darling husband proposed to me on Christmas day. It wasn't, showy, and no one else was around. I wasn't expecting it. Christmas day was almost over, it was quiet and we were talking about the day. Best moment in time.

  4. So cute! My favorite Christmas gift that I've gotten recently is a ticket to see Bob Seger on his farewell tour in Nashville. We live near Atlanta, but ticket prices are better in Nashville AND our daughter lives there, so we got to spend time with her as well. It was GREAT! I cried.

  5. Gorgeous card ❤️. My favourite gift for Christmas was my 72 piece Dewent Pencils, I must of been about 10. I still have them

  6. Love the card. When I was 19 I had the flu so bad at Christmas my Dad opened my presents and showed them to me while I laid on the couch. He had taken a picture of my cat, he enlarged it and mounted it for me. This was so typical of my Dad trying to help us feel better.

  7. This is So Adorable!! My brain has been busy thinking of how to get the ovals cut out so they would match up exactly right.. I might have to give it a try and see if what I'm thinking works. I have done the same as you did in making things fit like I want them to. It works for me! Lol I love the card!

  8. Very cute card! I see you were using a Gemini, wouldn't it cut through 2 layers of cardstock? You could line up your die and cut them both in the exact same spot at the same time.

  9. The best gift ever is my son, i got him the day before christmas eve, in Norway we open gift in the evening december 24

  10. Super cute… Most memorable sister came home to Dallas from NY. I had just had a bad car wreck and was still recovering. I cried when I saw her.

  11. First…. with abundant gratitude I thank you for so generously sharing your most amazing talent with us…
    My sweet husband of 45 years passed away December 5, 2015. He gave me a life I could never have dreamed of…. so of all the many, MANY gifts God has bestowed upon me…. my loving husband was, and will always be my most precious gift❤️

  12. So dang cute! I saw this stamp set yesterday and I know I have to have it! Great tutorial.
    My most memorable gift was the Christmas that I was pregnant with my first child. My Mom took the rocker I had as a child and refinished it and then took my baby doll that i also had and she cleaned her up, made a dress and knitted a sweater for her. She then put the doll in rocker and tied it with a big pink bow. My Mom was notorious for predicting all her grand babies (and usually was right) and she was convinced I would have a girl. The gift brought tears to my eyes. Sadly, I only had boys but that rocker and baby doll sat in my living room for ears. It’s a beautiful memory of my Mom and her kindness.

  13. Great idea for a card and so cute too! My favorite gift for Christmas was a set of candle sticks from my three young daughters, many many years ago.

  14. Other than my first born (my son) on December 4th,it was an 8 track tape player with a Elvis Presley tape when I was 14 and oh I love this card it is so darn cute.

  15. Best Gift i would say is me Kitty, Holly >^,,^<. she was outdoors, i got her in the house with some Thanksgiving turkey, she is now 14 !!!

  16. Kristina, I always look forward to your beautiful card tutorials! Everything you do is absolutely amazing! Thank you so much, I love how well you explain everything you do love while designing your cards! I’d have to say that my best Christmas gift/memory was the birth of my son on December 13. We lived at a lighthouse in Plymouth mass at the time he was born. Less than a week later we had channel 5 news and flying Santa at the lighthouse visiting us with everybody that lived out there, Plus family and friends!?❤️

  17. My husband gave me a table top Christmas tree thirty two years ago after my second son was born close to Christmas. My first son was only 15 months old and we had decided not to get a tree that year because our life was too chaotic. He brought it home Christmas Eve and we decorated it together. One of my favorite memories.

  18. I have been married for 50 years. We got married at 17-18 years old. We were poor. My husband could not afford a diamond for me. After about 10 years, we were still struggling financially, but my husband took his Christmas bonus and money he had been saving and bought me my diamond ring. Amazing! He definitely was a keeper and I am grateful for him every day. I love this sweet card and the stamp set is so adorable with the front and backs of these critters. You are so clever. Thanks for the inspiration.

  19. What a lovely, imaginative card! My best present ever was an airline ticket to Spain to see my childhood best friend, that I hadn't seen in 38 years!

  20. OMG Christina, this is absolutely precious! I am going to make t least 2 of these ( one for each of my grandsons) for Christmas.
    My daughter is a jewellery designer and my most memorable Christmas gift was a pendant made of our first grandsons fingerprint (cast in silver …. hers was cast in gold! 😉 Mine was a necklace and she made her Dad a tie pin of his little fingerprint. Needless to say, it is STILL very precious to us!

  21. Love this card !!! My most memorable gift Christmas Eve, our neighbors and their family came over and sang Christmas carols. We were honored they did this just for us.

  22. This is absolutely beautiful.  I've been debating between penguins and snowmen.  When I was little, I received a crawling baby doll.  My aunt worked in a toy factory and the dolls weren't even "public" yet, but she was able to get me one and "Santa" brought it…

  23. My most memorable gift was a Yorkshire terrier puppy! The kids and my mom surprised me with this adorable Pottery Barn Christmas stocking and inside was this adorable puppy! I will ever forget that moment. It meant so much to me and they made it so special. Best Christmas Ever!

  24. One of my most favorite and moving gift was from my son when he was about 17. He said he wanted to drive up to my parents a couple of days before Christmas to spend time with them. I didn't realize he was also working on my gift and needed/wanted my daddy's help (and tools). My son researched how to make a wind chime from aluminum pipes and surprised me with it at my parents' on Christmas Day. (My daddy thought you'd be able to hear it two miles away- but not really) It's about 5-6 feet long, overall, and currently hanging on my front porch– I LOVE IT. Sounds almost like an organ- it's just beautiful. I was astounded, delighted, and so impressed that he had done it himself! (similar ones I had admired at the Amish store and were ~$200….he knew I loved them.)

  25. A very cute card thank you it's give me a great idea to try out one thing I can remember getting as a small child was a brown Teddy bear I called him Bruno bear I still have him and I 49 now x

  26. OMGosh….that card is WONDERFUL!!!! When I was 10 or 11 my great-aunt gave me a metal Xmas tree holder….to say I was a little baffled as to why she sent me a Xmas tree holder would be an understatement. Being an organized hoarder, even as a child, I packed it away in the back of my closet. When I turned 18 I moved to my first home in November and like magic…I found the Xmas tree holder and was so excited!!! I am 72 now and I still get my tree holder out each Xmas and think so kindly about my Aunt Tillie. She gave me the perfect lifetime Xmas memory!

  28. Ingenious way to utilize those stamps. My best gift on Christmas was when I received a Barbie doll astride a horse figurine (I love horses). A friend pointed out to me a few years later that it was actually a figurine of a baby horse…

  29. Love this card, and it’s actually very timely! I was just getting ready to do a window card myself.
    It’s hard to think of my favorite gift, since I’m so grateful for everything, and I do enjoy giving more than receiving. When I was a kid, I wanted a Barbie dream house. Now, my dad grew up very poor, so we were always frugal when I was growing up. So he built a dollhouse by hand, and my aunt made all the miniatures and decorated the house. They bought little dolls to go inside. I LOVED that dollhouse so much. It got lots of love and play time. I think that was my favorite gift.

  30. That’s such a sweet card. One gift I remember with particular fondness was in 2006 when my husband bought me an iPod. I didn’t think at the time that I would really use it but I’ve used it SO much over the years and got so much pleasure from it. My husband died last week at the age of 63 (he had advanced Parkinson’s) so this Christmas will not be easy. ?

  31. What an adorable way to use this stamp/die set!!! So cute!
    You may want to try Jennifer’s way to cut 2 of the same shape in the same place….place both pieces of cardstock together & run thru your machine. The 2nd one won’t cut, but there will be an indentation where the die can be placed. ??
    Best holiday gift ever is the “reason for the season”…..Gods gift to us all!
    Thank you for your card.

  32. Cute Card! I love watching all of your videos. I think my favorite Christmas gift is the gift of "time". That's the perfect gift for me, it doesn't cost anything and I get to spend "time" making memories with my loved ones.

  33. Darling card! Thank you so much for sharing! One of my most memorable was the year my husband asked what I would like for Christmas and I told him a new muffin pan. He said "a muffin pan"? I told him I really didn't need anything but a muffin pan. So Christmas came and he handed me a gift, I opened it and there was my new muffin pan and in each compartment was gift cards! All my favorite craft stores, Bath and Body Works etc.,. Very creative and so much fun!

  34. I love this!!! My most memorable gift was last year and it was a family of snowmen ornament. We adopted our first child last year and it said mommy, daddy and Brodie under each family member ?❤️

  35. I can't think of my favourite gift. I get money every year so I buy all the "nice to have" craft items I have saved over the year.
    I love you idea for flip cards. I have a few and now I'm going to give this a try. It's so creative.

  36. Easy Bake Oven! This was a LONG time ago, they were fairly new to the market and I wanted one so badly, I think I squealed ? and my little brother got a really awesome train set that year. I try to give my grandkids gifts that make them squeal and dance, it's hard work being the fun Grama! I just ordered this stamp set yesterday, cant wait to play with it, love love love your card idea!

  37. I am 46 years old, but I still remember so vividly the Christmas I was 5 and got the Barbie Dream House! I wanted one so badly. Back then it was just about 4 cardboard sections separated by plastic columns, and the elevator was yellow and to raise of lower it there was a string to pull. Not nearly as fancy as the ones they have today!

  38. My mum dads house was the one the whole family gathered in ants, uncles, grandparents ,you get the idea a house full . So my dad got into a paintings frenzy, out came the white
    paint just to touch up the woodwork he said ready for the visitors. My sister and I knew it was Christmas very soon. So the smell of paint brings back my childhood. Hugs from the.

  39. The most memorable gift would have to be a single blue and orange marble my little brother gave me. I was 7 and he was 4. It was the first thing he gave to me on his own. Placed in a cherry blossom box wrapped in gold foil. We traded it back and fourth every Christmas from that year on for the next 20 years. He passed away at 26. It has been preserved in resin epoxy (with the box). That marble is my most treasured Christmas gift and sits under my tree, front and center for the past 11 years.

  40. My most memorable Christmas gift was a song that my brothers wrote and recorded for me. It was a difficult time in my life and they made something meaningful and creative and sweet and personal for me. I cried when I listened to it the first time – and many times after 😉

  41. The best gift ever was when I was a child I would get a new baby doll for Christmas. I loved the smell of a new baby doll. ; )

  42. This card is absolutely wonderful!
    One of the most special gifts I received for Christmas was when Mom gave me the framed collage she'd made of her wedding pictures. It had the only pictures she had of her and Daddy when they married in December 1952.

  43. First, I love your cards. My favorite gift came from both my parents when I was 7 years old, 1961. My father made a small wooden box just large enough to hold my Barbie dolls and my mother filled it with all handmade clothes for them, knitted and sewn. I’ve always cherished the gifts and the love they represent. I still have the clothes and dolls locked away in my special holder.

  44. I remember when I was a small child, I got a special teddy bear from my Uncle. I named him Timmy. I still have this bear in my attic. I just can't part with it. Happy Holidays !

  45. A really cute card! I love your holiday card series every year. My favorite gift was a gray faux fur shawl/wrap when I was 7 years old in 1960.

  46. As always, love this card, Kristina! Always happy to have our family together on Christmas. We eat and play board games.

  47. Cutest card!! The best gift i received for the holidays is now…my son is sober and clear-minded, and is recommitted to Christ? No better present!
