Cards in Envy Challenge: Celebrate the Season

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!
