Happy Monday! It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge. This week our theme is “Celebrate The Season.”
As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope, which is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple. You have until January 1st to enter.
For today’s card I used Tim Holtz “Stamptember” Holiday Poinsettia stencil. This came in combination with a beautiful stamp set called “Holiday”, which can’t be found in the set, but can be purchased separately at Simon Says Stamp. I began by applying Picket Fence Distress Ink through the stencil, then shifted the stencil down and applied Festive Berries Distress Ink. I was inspired by Jana Millen who featured this stamp in September when it was released. I also added a few sequins and placed Stickles in the middle of each for extra bling.
I wish each and every one of you a special holiday season in whatever way your family celebrates. We hope you’ll join us at Cards in Envy for our “Celebrate the Season” Challenge!
