Late Christmas Card

Late Christmas Card

I didn’t quite manage to make 10 cards in May for the 2008 Holiday Card Challenge on SCS, so I am making 20 cards this month. For the first 10, I used the sketch from this week’s Great Swaps Girls challenge (GSGC07). Since I wanted to use some of my retired Holiday Harmony Designer Series paper, the main colors are Always Artichoke and River Rock. The card base is a top-folded 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Mellow Moss card stock.

The tree was stamped in Always Artichoke ink on River Rock card stock and cut out with the oval Coluzzle template. Then I smeared Whisper White ink along the edge with my Craft ink pad and used the Itty Bitty Backgrounds set to create the snowflakes. The oval was adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added three little 1/4″ River Rock circles with Rich Regals brads to the 1/2″ Always Artichoke strip along the bottom edge of the card.

And now I have to work on my 10 Christmas cards for the month of June. Thanks for stopping by!
