MM162, MTS075 and KJ227


I rarely post two cards in a day, but I wanted to get this Christmas card in for a couple of challenges:

Merry Monday’s tag challenge:

Match the Sketch, which I turned on its side:

and the Kraft Journal’s “Take Your Pick”…I chose white, red and dictionary pages:

And here’s my card, using the Vintage Christmas set from Close to My Heart:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Vintage Christmas Card

Card base is Crumb Cake, ink is Real Red and Garden Green; and here’s the inside, which used Real Red and Versamark for the background stamping. 


Enjoy your day!

More Speed Racer (with Lambie this time!):

Love everything about this vintage card LeAnne! Really like the red and green against the really pops! Great layout too. And I especially like your inside...kudos to you for finishing the inside as I always think I am doing so well getting my cards done early, and then December comes and I am scrambling to finish the insides!! Have a great week! :0)

LeAnne said...

Thanks, Marcia! Yes, I learned my lesson a few years back....stamping the inside of my cards last minute sort of defeated the purpose of making them ahead of time, so I try to remember to do the insides as well! Now if I could just get in the habit of putting my name of the back...sigh! My friends yell at me because I forget!

The shades of red and green look so pretty on the crumb cake base! Fabulous card LeAnne! Looks like Cassidy's legs are getting longer, those knees are almost hitting her handlebars!! She's growing so fast ~ STOP!!!

Oh, what a beautiful Christmas card. I love the way you turned the sketch too. The DP is so pretty and so are those poinsettia leaves.
Looks like fun racing, Cassidy;)
