I have a quick share today~ I am joining in a couple of Christmas Challenges, so this marks number 2 complete. :-) Woo hoo!
The layout came from Lesley's Merry Monday Challenge. Her sketch designs make it easy to crank out a card quickly, and that is important if you are mass producing Christmas cards. I just dug through my Christmas stamps and my stash of papers and before I knew it I was done. My creative time is limited, so I appreciated the CAS design to finish quickly, but yet I felt like I accomplished checking the box and getting started in my Christmas cards.
I started with Riding Hood Red as my card base to match the patterned paper I found in my ever growing stash pile. (I believe this pp is from the Christmas Stack from DCWV).
I stamped three ornaments from Stampin' UP! Delightful Decorations and used the coordinating ornament punch. I added Martha Stewart Holiday Snow glitter to the middle polka-dot ornament. :-) I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from Wilson Designs Snowy Wishes which was hand-cut into a banner and applied to the left side of my patterned paper panel.
That's about it! Short sweet and to the point. :-)
As mentioned, I found my inspiration from the Merry Monday Sketch
I am also playing along with the current Rudolph Day Challenge.
