Funky Little Yuletide Greetings

Happy Thursday, peeps!  I have a fun, funky little Christmas card today....I had an idea, but it sort of morphed into something else! Anyway, it uses an unusual color palette from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and the sketch from Retro Rubber, as well as the inspiration photo from Inspired By!  Phew!

So here we go:

This card began as note-card sized, but got trimmed down a bit as it was a little bottom-heavy!  My tree stamp is from Stamplorations and has to be at least ten years old!  I stamped it in Versafine Black ink on a piece of Kraft paper, then added some really old washi tapes and a couple of sticker greetings from Tim Holtz:

I diecut some white stars to embellish it, then mounted it on a white card.  Simple and easy!  Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

Jesus answered him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me."  John 14:6

Ah ha, what a great way to use washi tape! I'm so bad at remembering to pull it out, lol, this one is super cute! Perfect for the sketch! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

Love the simple design of your card! It's just great what a few strips of washi tape can do! Thank you so much for playing along with 52CCT. Rosi x
