... I made a Christmas card today, the start of the second week of January. Lots of people do make holiday cards year-round, to save some stress come November/December, and I often do as well. But this year I felt I was done with making them for a month or so at least. And then along came the latest Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge. This month, the challenge is looking for a mix of their product and My Favorite Things (MFT). So I mixed and matched and made my card:
I can't help it if this is my very favourite Essentials by Ellen stamp set. I thought Santa would be perfect poking his head out of this wonky window. His beard is adhered to the card base, while his hat is popped up on foam tape that is just a bit thicker than what I used to pop the stitched panel, so there is some interesting dimension. Otherwise, I kept my design very simple... white on white with just the pops from his red hat and the black embossed ink. It is one of the most CAS Christmas cards I've ever made, which is why I'm going to add it to the current Simple CASology challenge. Since I used my NEW MFT Peek-a-Boo wonky window and Blueprints 24 dies, I am also linking up to the current Monday Simon Says Stamp Something New challenge.
Supplies: white cardstock, Essentials by Ellen Tis the Season stamps and die, Versafine onyx black ink, Zing clear embossing powder, My Favorite Things Peek-a-Boo wonky windows & Blueprints 24 stitched rectangle dies, Spectrum Noir marker, pop-dot tape
