With that big open panel, I decided to let some of these fun Cosmo Cricket papers do all the work:
I mounted the panel on a Crumb Cake card base and cut my banners from little scraps of the same paper pad. Since I cut off the base of the little Christmas tree in the center, it looked a wee bit off-balanced, so I added a glimmer paper star….perfect! An embroidery floss bow was my final embellishment.
And lest you think I did NO stamping….here’s the inside, stamped in Baked Brown Sugar, a perfect color for this card!
Why don’t you play along with us? It’s a great feeling to be working on your Christmas cards early…..another one to add to my own stack! Check out what the other stampers did at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper! You’ll find lots of holiday inspiration!
