Lazy Christmas Card


Hi peeps!  I am starting off the new year with another Christmas card...I know, you're probably sick of them, but I start right away for this year's Christmas!  And I promise, I'll have some different holidays featured real soon!  Anyway, the Jingle Belles' challenge this week is "No Time Like the Presents".....feature a present or gift wrap on your card!  I had been eyeing this paper for a card while I was wrapping gifts, so I snagged a little piece and went to work....easiest card ever!


The paper itself is almost like a kraft paper, so the printed design is not crisp, but soft and hazy.  I just cut out a piece, mounted it on a black mat and a Sahara Sand card that is a little smaller than 4 1/4" square.  I stamped a sentiment from Stitched with Cheer and added a layer of  snowy glitter, and it was done!


I did do a little more stamping on the inside, using Endless Wishes and Stitched with Cheer, watercoloring the banner a bit with Dapper Denim ink:


Cassidy got a spy kit for Christmas....one of two things she actually asked for.  I wonder on whom she is going to spy????!!!


Thanks for popping in today!

  8. Very sweet card. The images are so adorable.
    My daughter is now 34, but I remember when she walked around with her notebook and magnifying glass. One year she dressed up as Sherlock Holmes; none of the kids had a clue who she was!
    Have fun Cassidy!
