The new stamp set I have just got my hands on from SU after my party last week lends itself to the traditional Christmas card and this particular design has been in my mind since I saw the set in the Ideas Book. I love green and red as a Christmas combo and what can be more traditional than Christmas stockings. I have popped up one to add dimension and there are three little brads to act as pins. The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations This is my card for St Luke's Charity Challenge -the final challenge. Sadly the challenge is ending but I've loved doing every one and sending some of my cards in to be sold to raise well deserved and much needed funds
Using the same stamp I them went for a more contemporary Christmas, this time for the Less Is More challenge. It's a colour challenge this week and the colour is ....pink! I think many people will think of birthdays and flowers but I wanted to be a little bit different and so I thought'Christmas' and 'stocking' and here's my card
A small bit of matching pink bling acts as the pin to hold it up. I embossed the Christmas words using a Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder. There lots of lovely white space on this card and with that little touch of pink I think it is probably more LIM than CAS. Hope you like it!
