It's an exciting day today! We are starting our new year at the Christmas Card challenge blog. We've got some great new challenges, an amazing and talented new design team, and some cute stamps up for grabs each month. I am totally blessed to be a part of such a wonderful team. Sparkle has been the best, and the ladies on the team are always a joy to work with. Not to mention, I'm completely ecstatic at the end of the year when all I have to do is send out my cards. Huge bonus! lol I do hope that we can inspire you to join us each week and help build up your stash of cards throughout the year.
So, onto our first challenge, which is to create a One Layered Christmas card. For this weeks challenge, click HERE.
Here is the card I made for this week.
I wanted to go with a "less is more" kind of thing. This is as one layered as I get. lol I kept it simple, and without a sentiment for now. I couldn't decide on what I wanted to say, so I figured I'd leave it alone, until I knew what I wanted to do. I love the simplicity of this card. The traditional Christmas colors are beautiful together, and the debossing adds just the right touch, for me. I think I might make a few of these, in different colors maybe, and take them to work. I've combined the following challenges into my card as well:
Colour Create #85 - Red, White & Green
Pals Paper Arts #122 - Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke & Very Vanilla
Delightful Challenges 11/30 - Let It Snow
Raise The Bar #86 - It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
As always, the cards posted on the CCC blog are fabulous. I hope we can tempt a few of you to play along with us each week. Either way, I would recommend at least checking them out. :)
Stay crafty my friends!
