Today's card was easy peasy, and I really like the clean and simple look. I have quite a few snippets of SU! retired Christmas paper that's too small for an entire card panel, but they work for this design! I used Gina Marie Designs stitched squares dies to cut both the vanilla and dsp layers, then used a SU! mini punch (r) to cut a little tree out of the vanilla panel. I used an old olive snippet of green to punch another tree and then inserted it into the negative space, adding a tiny red gemstone to the top. I heat embossed the SU! Contempo Christmas (r) sentiment with gold embossing powder and that's all there was to this card. I've made several in assorted colors which I'll share in the future. (After seeing this card posted, the smaller panel looks white compared to the card base, but they're both vanilla cardstock. They may possibly be from 2 different mfrs which is why the color varies?)
I'm sharing this with the February Rudolph Days Challenge which ends when February ends.
I'm also sharing this with Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge CHNC 322 which is anything goes as long as it's Christmas with an option of recyling/upcycling.
I'm grateful for these devoted bloggers who keep us inspired to make Christmas cards all year long with Christmas challenges - otherwise, I'd be scrambling at the last minute in December!
Thanks for stopping by and may your Sunday be a peaceful one.
