A Christmas card!

Well I have finally made a start on my Christmas cards! I just haven't been able to get in the swing of things this year (note to self: avoid surgery prior to major birthdays and festivals wherever possible!!) So here's a nice and easy one I made using a sketch from Poetic Artistry as inspiration, it is for Mojo 63 here. This is a brilliant site to visit, Julee has great sketches and posts a slideshow of the cards for each sketch.

The chocolate chip base is a standard A6 size. A piece of designer paper has been added to a piece of ruby red cardstock which has a scalloped edge, and chocolate grosgrain ribbon is wrapped round this layer. The 2 white panels are matted onto olive cardstock: the tree has been stamped in olive ink , the sentiment stamped in chocolate ink. Result: a simple card that could be enhanced using embellishments to give a special card - how about some brads, glitter or a ribbon slider? The choice is yours!

Products used (all Stampin’ Up!):

  • Stamps – Season of Joy, Best Yet
  • Ink – Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
  • Cardstock – Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Whisper White
  • Other - Scallop edge punch, Holiday Treasures designer paper, Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
