silent night

1/15/21 Winner at The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Challenge!

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this evening to share a card I created Thursday for The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge and then forgot to post it! Our sponsor this month is Katy’s Card Emporium and the song/rhyme is about reindeer, so I created a sweet forest scene with a buck and his young buck. ;)

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from green cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock layers for the front and inside. I cut a couple Christmas trees from the same green cardstock, the two deer from brown cardstock and a moon from a pale yellow cardstock scrap, and arranged them on the front panel. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink, trimmed it and flagged one end, and layered it on a brown cardstock scrap which I trimmed leaving a small border.

I embellished the inside panel very simply with a narrow strip of brown cardstock, stamped the sentiment in green and brown inks, and adhered it to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… such a simple design that took less than 30 minutes to create! Love it when that happens!; )

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
