Another Christmas Card

DSCF5010

A quick post for today's CC232 at SCS, as well as a sketch at Stamping 411, which is a new find for me!  Here's the sketch:

ssc112 My fingers were itching to add some more "stuff" to this card, but since the sketch was clean and simple, I wanted to keep with that look.

I pulled out a new set, Tree Trimmings, and stamped it in Taken with Teal and Close to Cocoa, on a Very Vanilla panel, which are the challenge colors.  These are so close to the new Thoroughly Modern DP, which features Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede, I had to use it to bring out those nice colors.  The ornament was stamped again and popped up; the words are stamped on Vellum cardstock and adhered behind the main image; the little reindeer from Winter Post was stamped directly on the DP.  A little Close to Cocoa eyelet border was added too.  Easy!!  Thanks for visiting today!
