Note to self. When photographing a card with a cream colored background, use a contrasting color for the background! Oh well, it still shows up pretty well. I'm doing the Christmas Card Challenge on Split Coast Stampers (www.splitcoaststampers.com). I signed up to do two a month. That should give me a pretty good head start by the time December rolls around. Especially since I only got a very few cards out this past Christmas. Here are my first two for January. Got 'em done just in time!
I love creating backgrounds with stamps. The angel, harp and snowflakes were stamped on the cardstock. Then I used new paper from Stampin' Up! called Everyday Elegance. I like using things that aren't particularly theme oriented to add color and interest. This one is a keeper.
The next one is made with Stampin' Up! Frostwood Lodge Designer Paper and the new Doily die. They are both so terribly Victorian. I love the doily in Real Red. Who says doilies have to be white? Not I!
This is a pretty good start on my Christmas Card stash. Maybe I'll go ahead and sign them, address them and get them realy to mail!
