I know Christmas was less than a month ago, but it's never too early to start on this year's cards. I made Christmas cards all year long for the past few years and it's always a huge weight off my shoulders when December rolls around and all I have to do is write in the cards I've already made and pop them in the mail. So this is card #1 for Project Christmas 2013. Wanna join me?
I used one of the gorgeous graphic sayings from Seasonal Sentiments for this quick and easy card. I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Wild Cherry. The patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Mistletoe collection. For the sentiment panel I used the Rectangle 1 STAX and Rectangle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream and Wild Cherry layers. I stamped the sentiment with MFT Wild Cherry Premium Dye Ink.
I used the Let It Snowflake Die-namics to cut out the Jellybean Green and polka dot snowflakes, then I topped it with a Wild Cherry button tied with Hemp Cord.
When I saw the horizontal strip on the sketch I thought of ribbon, so I used the Beautiful Bows Die-namics to create this gorgeous bow from Sour Apple felt. I love the warm and cozy feel the felt gives to the card.
On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments using MFT Jellybean Green Premium Dye Ink.
