I felt like I had two broken arms! So frustrating not to be able to post anything or play in any challenges... until now.
While I was in 'down' mode, I started on my Christmas cards, not knowing what challenges were out there. So I do believe, one will qualify for this weeks challenge at Paper Players which is monochromatic. Most of the materials are SU (some of it retired) with a few stash items thrown in, such as the bling.
Now here is my card...
I started with Very Vanilla CS and embossed with the Elegant Lines emboss folder. I then stamped my tree in choc chip, soft suede and river rock. After that I stamped "Dasher" in early expresso and the sentiment in hunter green. I then sponged on a light touch of campaign mist Shimmer Paint over the whole front, then added the brown crystal to Dasher's antler just for a bit of bling. The corners are punched with the ticket punch on the WW and Expresso mats then popped up with dimensionals.
Here is a sneak at the inside... can't have Christmas without Santa!
For my personal Christmas cards I am going with the red card stock matting which I'll post below, but my first prototype was with Early Expresso matting, which worked out great for me to enter this challenge. That and having a computer that is up and running.... thanks Sharon.
Now here is the same card with RED accents.
A little close up of this one too. Well there you have it. Hope you like them.
