So today's Stamp Simply Challenge #65 is to make a Christmas card using only one piece of 2" DP on your card--you can use any other cardstock and embellishments, but only a 2" piece of DP! I don't know if I was just having a bad mojo day, or a glutton for punishment, but I made three cards before I got one I really liked! And I am not even sure it qualifies as a "Christmas" card--maybe a winter card! Oh well! So here's my favorite:
All my DP is from the same sheet of BG's Wassail. I used the little snowman and sentiment from Whippersnapper's Winter Schminter set. He is grunged up a little and has some SU Dazzling Diamonds for some sparkle, which really looks better IRL. This is simple but still kinda cute!
The ribbon and embossing on the deer are actually Always Artichoke, not brown as it looks here! I used Confetti White for my tag which now looks speckled. Grrr. And number three:
Oh dear, this card just got more complicated and elaborate the longer I worked on it! I used my Christmas JustRite set, some stars from Holiday Blitz and a sentiment from Snowman for Peace by Whippersnapper. In fact, I CASE'd Anna's little banner after seeing her snowflake posts here. (Of course, hers is much cuter than mine! ) Then I added some snowflake punches like Peanutbee did and added some MS glitter and it just went on & on. I finally just stopped! So create your own masterpiece and play the challenge too! Remember, my blog candy goes until 9 pm tonight!
