Welcome Friends! This week’s challenge from the Can You Case It Design Team is fun and simple…a holiday card!!
I came across this stamp set the other day that I purchased (cough) last year and never inked up. I had forgotten about the cute die that came with it! Well, I meant to get this card done sooner because as soon as I saw the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch!, I knew exactly what card I wanted to make. But with one thing and the other, the sketch challenge is now closed. Well, the card was in my head and wouldn’t make way for other inspiration, so I had to go ahead and make it. Sometimes those design ideas can be pesky!
The overall feel of the card reminds me of a comfortable sweater, so warm and fuzzy.
Isn’t this die A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E?? The font is just amazing!! Because I used a patterned background, I die cut the sentiment four times and then just glued them together, one on top of the other. It really isn’t that hard, one you get one piece lined up properly, you can just push the rest of it together without difficulty. I use a very fine tip glue pen for this job.
I had a bit of fun with the outside of the envelope as well! I pulled a few bits and pieces from the Simon Says Stamp set Ornaments and just stamped a few fun images.
Well, that it’s for me today. I would love to hear what you think of my card! And Christmas…are you ready?? I am…ready to celebrate!!! That’s the important thing right? lol
