** 4/9/17 Winner at Christmas Card Challenges! **
Update: This challenge blog abruptly closed down in mid-April, after only a couple challenges. :(
Hi everyone! Hope your week is off to a good start and you’re enjoying some nice spring weather! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Season’s Greetings Christmas Challenge and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #4 – Picture Inspiration! Isn’t this photo just gorgeous?!
I created a CAS Christmas card playing off the red in the photo. I’m working on creating more clean and simple designs. It’s a challenge because I do like my layers but I really enjoyed creating this. I cased one of my own Christmas card designs from this past Christmas because I liked it so much. The simplicity is just so cool! And how about that adorable Santa hat?! :)
The front sentiment is stamped in gorgeous Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink. OMG, everybody should have some of this in their stash! The inside sentiment is stamped in Real Red ink, a Christmas classic. :)
