Christmas goal round 2 Another step closer to being ready

This is the second month of my personal challenge to create a few cards each month so that I can be ready for the Holidays this year, and have less stress. I'm happy that I'm still marching ahead toward my goal, and I like experimenting with different stamp sets, different color schemes, and this month a sketch. I actually used some of my retired DSP that I have on hand (I have LOADS of DSP) for this card. It is a Christmas pattern that I have always loved, and it feels good to use some of it. I made another 8 cards this month, so I'm actually a month ahead of my goal, which is really fantastic!

Merry Monday Challenge #49

I was inspired this month by a sketch challenge on a blog that does a weekly Christmas card challenge. I've participated once before, but it has been a while. This challenge translated quickly into a design in my head, and it came together pretty quickly. I've shared the sketch image here, but you can go to the site and see past challenges as well.

I used the following supplies to create this card:

  • Stamps: Christmas Lodge, Netting
  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
  • Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso (for sponging)
  • Accessories: Crumb Cake Seam Binding, Ovals Framelit, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Stampin' Sponges, Deck the Halls DSP (retired), Dimensionals
