Greetings, Stampers! The holidays are going to start creeping up on us soon, but it certainly doesn't feel like it here in NY. The last two days have been close to 90 degrees. Today is supposed to be a little cooler, and I hope drier.
The inspiration for today's holiday card comes from all over the place. The colors are from the Merry Monday challenge. The layout is from an old Freshly Made Sketches challenge which I've used several times, and I was inspired by my stamping buddy LeAnne to use birch paper in my project.
I had to play along with the challenge at Merry Monday this week, which is to combine green, white and woodgrain. I love a Christmas Card in woodland colors!
Remember this post when I talked about hoarding my scraps? Well, I'm still working on trying to finish up this bag of Merry Moments DSP. I used only the littlest of scraps today. At this rate, this bag is going to last me a long time! My goal is to try to finish it up this year before Christmas, though. Do you think I can do it?
The deer was stamped onto Very Vanilla paper with Chocolate Chip ink, and punched with the Extra Large Oval Punch. The pretty frame was made with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder. I sponged both with a little Crumb Cake ink.
