Christmas card 2011

This is one of two designs I made for my Christmas cards this year, but I forgot to photograph the first design even though I made about 35 of them. I used the same stamp for both designs, which is made by Art Impressions F-1121. I used a Martha Stewart punch along the bottom of a small square card blank from Craftwork Cards. I embossed two lines with my Hougie board then added a strip of Christmas text paper between them.
I am entering this card in to the following challenges:
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge: sparkle and shine
Ruby's Rainbow Challenges: monochrome
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge: Merry Christmas
Papertake Weekly Challenge: last Christmas card of the year
Paperplay Challenges: Christmas
Papercrafting Journey: Christmas
One Stop Craft Challenge: Christmas sparkle

  4. This is really elegant Annette. Love that image and the border makes it really different. What a good idea making your cards using 2 designs. Mine were all different and then I had to decide who got what - nightmare!
