Merry Christmas (yes, again)


So its November .... which means December and Christmas is around the corner. I'm ramping up my Christmas card making to prepare for a Holiday Bazaar in the beginning of December so be prepared for lots and lots of holiday/winter cards!!

I am entering this card into Moxie Fab World's Tree-mendous Trees Challenge!

Today's card started with a background that i made months and months ago, for whatever reason it didn;t work then so it went into my 'extra's bowl.' I pulled it out to use in my on going quest to use up the ton of stuff in my 'extra's bowl.'

The background is black and i used a flower from The Alley Way Stamps  Flower Show and stamped it in white ink all over the panel. I pulled out Making Holiday's Bright stamp set and used three triangles to make Christmas trees. I used the swipe technique on the solid triangle.

I found a white card stock piece and just cut a simple wave into one edge. I added the snow and trees with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner. Last i found some gold washi tape and added a short strip to a card stock piece, then die cut three tiny stars. I added them to the tops of the trees!

Having a background already done sure does speed up the card making processes!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
