A 180 degree turn from Summer to Christmas & a challenge for you!


I know you are probably thinking "Wow, she was stuck in Summer with Tart & Tangy and now she is posting a Christmas card, how CRAZY is that!!!"...LOL!!! Well, here is the story - My girlfriends and I do a Christmas card swap once a month so that we have our cards done by October and don't have to worry about them at the last minute. So we each make 10 or so a month and give each other one that we make and keep the rest for our own stash. So the reason why I am sharing this card with you NOW is because it can work with ANY of the Lots of Thoughts sentiments (or any sentiment of your choice) and with ANY patterned paper. That is why I love it! I also love the simple, clean look. I have seen many cards on SCS done in this style and could not wait to try it myself. So my challenge to you is see what you can come up with and share it with me! You can leave a comment with a link to your creation. Are you up for the challenge???

Products used:
Stamps - Lots of Thoughts (SAB set from SU!)
Ink - Real Red (SU!)
Cardstock - Kraft & White (SU!)
Pattern Paper - Holly Lane (SEI)
Embellishments - Real Red & Mellow Moss Thin Grosgrain Ribbon (SU!)
Tools - Square Punch & Craft Knife to make a slit at the top of the card for the ribbon to slide through.
