February Christmas Card Challenge

  Since this is the last day of February I wanted to post my card for the Christmas Card Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers.  I bet you're relieved that it's not another birthday card!  Well I do have a few more of those to show!  I made 10 of these Christmas cards using up some small scraps of Elegant Soiree DSP and Baja Breeze cardstock.  I didn't have enough left to use for one of my classed but enough for 10 cards. If I can keep this up every month it will be some awesome not to be rushing at Christmas to get them all made as well as using up some odds and ends I've got sitting around.  Now I've got to work on what I'm going to make for March!

   The base of this one is Very Vanilla with a layer of Crumb Cake that I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder on.  I lightly drug my white craft ink pad over the raised snowflakes to make them stand out a little more.  Be careful not to press down too hard or you'll get ink in between the snowflakes.  I took some narrow scraps of Baja Breeze and paper pierced the edge and then adhered it to my strip of Elegant Soiree DSP.

  I stamped Peace on Earth with Crumb Cake ink and then used my paper snips to make the banner ends.  I sponged Baja Breeze ink around the edges and added rhinestones to both ends.  The banner is popped up on dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
