I had a little stamping time today and realized I have been slacking on my Christmas cards!!! I found a new challenge called, appropriately enough, Christmas Card Challenges! This week, the challenge was “shopping”:
I made two cards for the challenge. The first is CAS and I let the Basic Grey Wassail DP do most of the work:
I used a SU sentiment from All Holidays stamped in Always Artichoke, and a Waltzingmouse frame stamp that fits the Labels 4 nesties, stamped in Riding Hood Red. I also stamped a few little polka dots on the RHR mat:
I popped up a little present cutout and finished it off with some baker’s twine.
The next one again uses Wassail, this time with images from Artistic Outpost and a masking technique:
The card base is Cherry Cobbler, stamped with Woodgrain; I cut a Top Note from the BG paper, stamped the images on Naturals white in Cherry Cobbler and overstamped with the Linen BG stamp in Crumb Cake. The edges of both the main panel and the Sahara Sand mat were distressed. Finally, some MS greenery punchouts and a little tag attached to some Cherry Cobbler seam binding finished it off:
Some MS glitter adds just a little sparkle!
Thanks for visiting today---I should have a post tomorrow and then on to my blog vacation! Here’s a little Cassidy fix for you:
I think I caught her by surprise!!! Enjoy!
