Like it or not….we are on Week 2 of December! Week 2 at the Krafty Chicks Challenge blog is all about Christmas! With any luck your Christmas cards are in the mail, or you could be a “procraftinator” like me and still be creating them! Either way, come link up your Christmas creations…they can be for this year or next!
I am mailing out numerous cards and flat seems to work way better in the mail system than numerous embellishments. Flat does not have to equal plain. I added in some details to make this card pop. My border is dry embossed and a strip of bronze weaved baker’s twine adds a touch of shimmer. My sentiment is from the limited edition Picture This Christmas Collection. The stamp set features sentiments that are perfect for the outside or inside of your holiday cards. Here is a look at the complete set-
This set is only available to order until December 31….and would be a great addition to your Christmas collection. You can always get a head start on next year’s holiday cards.
