LIM338 and CTS231 Joyful Christmas

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  How is your week going?  We have finally hit some cooler temperatures and it has been quite nice!  I squeaked in a card yesterday, and I used the Less Is More challenge of no stamping as well as the CAS(E) This Sketch sketch

I have a whole file of Crafty Secret papers and cards that I have been hoarding, so I thought I would use one today and make a Christmas card!  I used some burlap paper, trimmed the image down, added some washi tape for the banner and a wee little glimmer star:

 I adhered the washi to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock so it would show up against the burlap, then cut it out with a banner die.  Easy and quick, just what I needed!

Another one to add to the stash!

Does anyone remember the old Password game?  I found this one at a thrift store and although Cassidy cannot quite come up with one-word descriptions for all the words on the cards, she tries VERY hard and drives us crazy wanting to play it constantly!!  It's good for her to stretch her word usage too!  We played a couple games in our kitchen/garage, and she and Wayne made quite a team!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Great use of your stash. Believe it or not, my favorite part is the banner! I never thought of sticking the washi to cardstock and cutting it out!! Loved to play Password back in the day. We are a game-playing family as well.

Your card is great! The DP almost looks like linen to me. That cute image would make a beautiful Christmas stamp! I remember that game! We had one years ago!

pretty Christmas card. Love the image against the burlap background.
Looks like Cassidy is having fun with the Password game.

Wonderful card! I, too, like the use of the burlap and the washi tape -- thanks for the tip on using it! Loved playing password! (Our edition is so old that I think half of the words are extinct!)

Your Christmas card is gorgeous, LeAnne ... how perfect is this little glittery star?! VERY!
LOVED Password, and even that boardgame... now where have I put that? Maybe the one you bought used to be mine?!

Love this vintage looking card! I have never played Password but it sounds like fun!

Esther said...

You've made a lovely Christmas card here - the burlap background gives fantastic visual texture! Loving the embellishments too. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

The textured background and that little sparkly star are perfect on this pretty card! Yes I remember Password. My parents, brother and I used to play it all the time when we were camping!

Wonderful take on the sketch!

This is wonderful! I love the texture of the background and the vintage look of your embellishments. This has such a wonderful rustic feel! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
