Simple Christmas card

SU Word Play for Christmas

The Muse Card Club Challenge #11 features a beautiful card by Laurie Willison. I was inspired by the colors of green/dark brown and the recessed sentiment. I liked the touch of bling and the polka dots on Laurie’s card as well. I am trying to make a few Christmas cards a month so I am not so crazy come holiday season. Here’s my take on the MUSE this week:

Card Recipe:
INK: SU Chocolate Chip
PAPER: SU Early Espresso, SU Festival of Prints (retired), SU Very Vanilla, SU Pattern Stack Neutrals
ACCESSORIES: random green rhinestones
TOOLS: SU Holiday Ornaments Framelits, SU Modern Label Punch for top of ornament

Here is Laurie’s card:

CASology #26…Winter

Although I am in sunny, hot, and humid Florida for the STAMPIN’ UP Leadership Conference, I know if I were back in Pittsburgh, I would need warm mittens or gloves to survive the cold and snow up north! So, my thoughts of WINTER for CASology’s #26 challenge are mittens and snowflakes. I also thought I may as well get a jump start for next year and make it a Christmas  card!!

Do you wait until close to Christmas to start your cards or do a little at a time throughout the year?
