Spotlight on Christmas

Over at SplitCoastStampers, a Christmas card challenge is hosted each year. The idea is to make your Christmas cards a little at a time throughout the year so that you aren't rushed like a crazy person come Dec. 1st (raise your hand if you recognize yourself - I know I do!).

Here's my January submission:
I used a tutorial from SplitCoastStampers for the Criss Cross card. It was made from Very Vanilla cardstock, on which I attached DSP from the Ski Slope line that was in the Holiday Mini catalogue...should have ordered more of that *pout*

I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla, punched it out and mounted it on a piece of Bashful Blue.

The belly band is a piece from the Office line layered under a piece from Ski Slope.

What do you think?

  7. I have been in Xmas Challenges befoer and they really do make life so much easier!!! This is a beautiful card.

    What I liked most about the challenges was I would do a dozen the same one month and then change designs for the ext month...It never got too laborious!
