Paper craft project no. 239: Noel

2014-08-15 OLC Noel

Hello! I’m squeaking this in to the current Less is More – One Layer Foliage. I played with one of the STAMPlorations holiday stamps coming out in September (preview them here). I stamped it 3 times along the side by masking the image then watercolored with Memento inks (pear tart, cottage ivy, northern pine, love letter). I stamped the simple sentiment in chalk ink (VersaMagic midnight black), added some Diamond stickles on the center of the poinsettias, and rounded one corner. [The MIL liked the card so I’m making her several of these for her Christmas mailing. It’s never too early to start making those holiday cards!]

I’d also like to enter this card to these 4 other fun challenges: Addicted to Stamps and More #108 – Holiday; Craft for the Craic #7 – A Craft Item You Have Never Used Before (the stamps are brand new — it’s my first project using the stamps); Weekly Christmas Card Challenge #37 – Color Challenge (I used two shades of green and red); and Completely Christmas Challenge #24 – Anything Goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
