I have a lot of Christmas cards for you this week, because I finally am caught up on all of the challenges from the blog Christmas Stampin' All Year Long. YAY! When my club members were working on their two page layouts and other projects on Saturday night, I focused on my Christmas cards.
The first challenge I took was Vicki's Challenge #24 - The Stampless Challenge. We could not stamp on our card at all. Many times I turn to my Cuttlebug embossing folders for this type of challenge. The Lace Tree folder is perfect for this. I inked the tree in Olive and the trunk in Cocoa. Then I added bling! Now, I had to figure out how to get my sentiment on my card without stamps. I rumaged through my goodies and came across this "JOY" sentiment attached to ribbon. Perfect! Finally I layered my image on olive cs, gold vellum and cranberry cs. The pattern paper is from the Basics Evensong Collection by CTMH.
Have a great day!
