Christmas Cards already?

In December, I was frantically trying to finish 33 Christmas cards to send out to people, as well as planning a third birthday and look after a five month old. So when I saw the Merry Monday card challenge, where you create Christmas cards throughout the year, I was instantly hooked!

This week there was a sketch to be used, which was:


And here is my card:

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and then cut it into a circle. I added a little bit of glitter to the snowflake:

The strip was cut out of a piece of patterned paper, and I used a chipboard button from my stash.
This was a super easy card to make, but I really like the look of it.
Supplies used:
Stampin' Up: Season of Joy stamp set, Riding Hood Red cardstock, Riding Hood Red and Gumball Green ink, Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle.
Creative Memories: Nordic Christmas paper, Custom Cutting System, Circle Patterns, Square maker, 12" Rotary Trimmer with straight and scoring blades.
Echo Park: Seasons Greetings Collection Christmas Chipboard Stickers.

  2. Great job Lauren, the inked stamp with markers is always a cool technique! So glad you joined us at Merry Monday this week!

  3. Very nice Lauren, what a fantastic technique. Thank you for joining us for Merry Monday this week.
