Another Christmas Card!

I’ve finished 6 cards for my self imposed Christmas Card Quest…

6 of 40:

Each of these finished squares is 1 ½ - so technically an inchie + half! I love the simple color scheme on this card - Sepia, Cream and Mellow Moss with a little copper hardware added in. The Santa’s and Dec calendar were all punched from ATC stamps. The Do Not Open was crackled with Range Crackle medium - because - sigh - I don’t have the new Rock Candy yet…

Quest Update:
6 of 40 cards completed
Money Spent $0
Items Never used - Tim Holtz ATC Stamps and Hero Art Collage Stamp (Santa definition)

How am I doing on making 50% of them easy to complete cards - not so much! I knew this would be hard for me - but I want to enjoy the process more than I am worried about the time it takes! (as long as I get them all complete before the beginning of Dec!)

RU ready for Christmas?


The Stuff:
Stamps - Holiday Collection, Santa’s Wish (Tim Holtz); Winter Post (SU),
Collate Merry & Bright (Hero Arts), Holiday Prints (SU)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss (SU)
Ink - Sepia Archival (Ranger), Mellow Moss (SU)
