Today's card was inspired by the November sketch @ Christmas Card Throwdown and will also be entered @ Weekly Christmas Card Challenges, @ Merry Monday for "Kraft and Red", and @ Get Creative Challenges for "Holidays".
I started this A2 sized card with a vertical, side-folded white card base, kraft cardstock and some dark red patterned paper that I over-stamped with a plaid background stamp from TAC in a dark red ink.
I then stamped snowflakes in blue/gray ink on a textured white cardstock circle that was a left over piece from my October Paper Pumpkin card kit. The metallic copper deer die cut was left over from a scrapper/planner kit that I got pieces from at a product exchange during a Happy Planner meet-up at Michael's a few weeks ago. (it's flipped over to the white, back-side in this picture for some reason, lol)
The stamp set is also from the October Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up! And the Season's Greetings banner I stamped was extra from the kit too. Wait until you get to see everything I have made from that kit -I am now in LOVE with My Paper Pumpkin subscription!!! (If you would like your own Paper Pumpkin subscription, just click on the Paper Pumpkin tab at the top of my blog and follow the links to subscribe for yourself -Remember, it also makes a great gift for the paper crafter in your life!)
Here you can see the texture in the background of the white circle much better and that I adhered the deer using mini foam pop dots.
I love the way that this card came together and it was super fast to make because I had everything already out on my desk from other projects that I was working on at the time.
Inside, I stamped the larger sentiment in the red ink again plus several more of the snowflakes in blue/gray for accent. Top and bottom I adhered left over pieces of patterned paper from trimming the card front.
That's it for me today -things are all geared up for holiday crafting at my stamping desk, so be prepared for lots of holiday goodness over the next few weeks! Until next time~
