Merry Little Christmas

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess Jessie Rone, finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Apparently all Jessie's favorite holidays are coming up, so why not get a jump on one of them!! Make a card for one of the many holidays coming up, be it Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, or Hanukkah!! 

One of my friends gave me an adorable set of stamps which contained this cute reindeer which I thought would work well for a Christmas card. I decided to create an Accordion Card using the Ring Accordion Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I used the pine tree edge from the Outdoor Edges die set to create the background of the two pages with the deer. I die cut the edges onto white cardstock that had Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front and then covered the snow areas with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and the trees with Silverado Silk Microfine Glitter. 

I stamped a Christmas sentiment from Papertrey Ink onto the centre page.

Here is my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope. It is always good to get another Christmas card made at this time of year to add to my stash.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
