Hello! I finished my 2013 Christmas Cards for the year! Yeah! Now I get to take a month off before the challenge starts up again in January 2014. As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out making cards at the last minute in December. I make four cards a month so that I'll have about fifty at the end of the year. Today is the deadline for getting the November cards done and posted, and I made it in the nick of time!
For my cards this month, I used all little sweet dollar images from Studio G. I kept all my designs Clean and Simple as November is a very busy month for me due to my retail job.
For my first card, I kept it really Clean and Simple and tried to add some impact with some sparkle. The image was stamped in the lower left corner of a textured white paper. I colored it with Copics and put Flower Soft on the base for the image to simulate snow and then added green adhesive crystals for ornaments and a clear crystal snowflake for a tree topper. It's a little hard to see in the photograph, but I also stamped snowflakes with Versamark on the rest of the white space, and sprinkled it with a clear glitter. It's quite pretty in real life.
Love them all, they are built along the CAS design and are quite delightful!ReplyDelete

Such sweet cards Amy, fun tree image, and love the added sparkle. And the bird is so cute too! Fabulous designs! I wish I could ever do the SCS Christmas card challenge and keep up with it! I might actually try again next year. If I could just do 2 per month...ReplyDelete
