SSS91 Christmas

DSCF6218

Last year I challenged myself to do a Christmas card a week….I haven’t been so good at it this year, so I thought I had better get on the stick!  Plus my CTD teammate Barbara is challenging herself and anyone else as well!  I have SO many Christmas stamps I haven’t used, my challenge this year is to use some that I neglected in 2010! 

I saw Korin’s sketch at The Sweet Stop and thought it would be fun:

SSS91

so I turned it on its side and went to work:

There was a “spin” to the sketch---you needed to do dry embossing!  No problem!  Again, I pulled out a neglected CB folder and added that to my pile of supplies.  I gave lots of sets some love on this card!  Here are a few details:

  4. Love it! The colors are so pretty as are all the embellishments! I just made my first Christmas card yesterday (it will be on my blog on Tuesday), so I want in on yours and Barb's challenge! I'm determined to get them done early this year. I was so envious of you doing them last year! Let's see how I do!

  5. Christmas cards --already?? I never finished last year's cards! Your card is really neat! I like the snowflakes on the checked dp and I especially like the inside sentiment: Merry Christmas and warm winter wishes. Perfect!

  7. What a lovely Christmas card...great job.
    I love your personal challenge to make at least one Christmas card per week. I may have to start doing this also...instead of a Christmas card making marathon.
