Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #57
I've been busy making cards this week, haven't I? The temps are in the 80's again today and I should be outside but I'm hiding from pollen. Of course, it will catch up with me soon and I'll be miserable for a couple weeks. The Southeast is the worst place for allergies in the U.S. Just look it up. Although, I am sure many suffer elsewhere.
I've watched my friend, Bonnie, at Stamping with Klass makes such pretty Christmas cards for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge where she is a DT member and thought I needed to get on my Christmas cards again. So, I got out my holly image and went to work.
This week is a sketch:
I punched out some 1" circles with a Fiskars punch, handmade a banner, and used a Spellbinders circle nestabilitie for stamping my image. The bow is a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon/bow.
My image is Ornamental Holly Fabric Stamp Set by Rubber Stamp Tapestry. I am stamping on paper, though, not fabric. It works well on both.
The paper is PTI White, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. Ink is Memento Bamboo Leaves. My sentiment is from Hot Off the Press/Christmas Words.
My card also fits the March Christmas Challenge 2013/Dirty Dozen Monthly Themes. It is a challenge for Fan Club Membesr and is an ongoing challenge so you are welcome to play whenever you please.: SCSCCMarch13. The challenge is Leaves of Green or Three.
