I finished my January cards for the 2009 Christmas Card Challenge in the nick of time! This card was inspired by Dannie Graves’s To You and Yours Christmas Card in the SCS gallery. I had to change the color scheme, because I didn’t have enough red Holiday Treasures Designer Series Paper left over to make 10 cards.
The sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip Craft ink (and clear embossed) on a Naturals White tag that I created with the new Stampin’ Up! exclusive Lots of Tags sizzlits die. I sponged Old Olive and Chocolate Chip ink along the edge of the tag. Parts of the embossed main image were colored in with Whisper White Craft ink and a blender pen. I ran some Old Olive grosgrain ribbon behind the main panel and added one of the new (white) 5/16″ brads.
Did you know I was the lucky winner of the 2008 Holiday Card Challenge? That was such a wonderful surprise!
Thanks for stopping by!
