IO Challenge- Christmas in July
Greetings friends. It is July. Are your holiday cards done yet? Just kidding. It is never to early to start thought!
I have been teaching a quick and easy Christmas card class this month, so I am still in that frame of mind for this challenge. I am a firm believer that holiday cards should be simplified as much as possible. If you are making 20+ cards, you really need to keep it simple if you want to keep your sanity!
For my card today, I stamped the Star Tree Solid Leaves image (H16302) onto white cardstock with Olympia Green Versafine ink and colored the ornaments and stars with a gold metallic marker. I make the metallic of the coloring really pop, I added layers of metallic cardstock behind the image. For the background, I stamped the new Cover a Card Pine background (CC292) onto green cardstock using the same green ink as my tree image. So, for the total tally of the card... two stamps, one ink, gold marker. Simple, simple, simple.
