I know it is Real Early for this…BUT…this is how I build my
Christmas Card stash for the end of year mailings!
I do the Christmas Challenges out there in Blog land!
Today’s Card is the first Card I have made for this year!
Today’s Challenger is
52 Christmas Card Throwdown 2-19
It is a Color Challenge!
Here is the Challenge!
Purple and Green?
It took a lot of thinking but, look what I came up with!
I like how this card turned out!
Here is what I did to the inside of my Card!
I had to bring those pines inside!
I used 2 different greens, the pines appear more realistic!
TO MAKE THIS CARD, HERE ARE THE STOCK AND MEASURES:
Gorgeous Grape- card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score
a 2″ x 2.50″ piece for die cutting the pinecones
Whisper White- front and inside panels, 4″ x 5.25″
Christmas Pines- greeting, pines, and inside sentiment
Garden Green- front and inside pines
Old Olive- front and inside pines
Gorgeous Grape- greeting and inside sentiment
Big Shot- die cutting machine
Pretty Pines Thinlits- front pinecones
Gold Elastic Cord- bow on front
Here is my Card once again!
I know it seems early for Christmas Cards…As I said above…this is how I build up
my stash for the end of the year mailing!
Then I don’t have to make all my cards at the end of the year,
during the busiest time of the year to boot!
That is the idea of these Christmas Card Challenges!
So Happy I found them!
Until the next Post…Blessings and Christmas Prep to you ALL!
