I resolved to continue making Christmas cards all year long and with so many great challenges out there to help me accomplish my goals, how can I lose?
Today I began with a kraft card base and stamped it with white ink using random snowflakes. Next I die-cut a white panel with a stitched rectangle die, adding a MB pine needle border that I dotted with liquid applique and then heat-set it. I attached a piece of silver and red ribbon to the top, and added a Unity sentiment. Next I pulled out my long-unloved (and retired ) SU! ornament punch and cut several ornaments, scoring them in the center and attaching them to one another until it was full enough to suit me. I edged each ornament with silver stickles and attached it with a piece of silver/grey twisted twine. I tried putting a little bow on top, but it didn't work because the ornament has too much bulk to attach one. So this is the finished card and by the way, that ornament folds flat for mailing - I like that!
I'm sharing this with the January Rudolph Days challenge which is always a Christmas theme.
I'm also sharing it with Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #369 which is "use a sentiment"
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can find time to get started on your Christmas stash early too! It really alleviates a lot of pressure during the holidays!
