Christmas is less than three weeks away, and I’m actually ahead of schedule Christmas card wise. I colored up Got the Wreath from Mo Manning during the 30 day coloring challenge and turned it into a quick, simple card with a few pieces of Maja Design patterned paper from the Joyous Winterdays collection.
I used the largest of the dies from the Stitched Rectangles STAX 2 set from My Favorite Things to diecut the panel with my little guy, just for some subtle detail.
I covered the front of my card panel with a green piece of patterned paper and mounted my faux stitches colored panel with some low foam tape.
In the top left corner I made a very typical Elin cluster. I started with a Doodlebug Design mini doily for some softness, and made sure I didn’t glue it down completely. The little lift you get by not glueing it down is just enough. I diecut a few branches from that green patterned paper with a couple of CraftEmotions dies, a few banners with a die set from My Favorite Things and stamped a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad AS that I white heat embossed. I finished with a few raindrops from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.
Mostly green and white, with a little hint of red. I’m not a huge fan of red for Christmas, but the combo of this deep brown based red and this grayish, blueish green works for me.
