Its Monday and that means its holiday time! I am so happy to be part of the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog, where every week we create a card on Monday - each Monday there is a different challenge for your card (so you can always keep it fresh - I don't know about you but it is SO hard for me to make 50 xmas cards that are all the same). This week, Debbie from The Paper Garden challenged us to use this awesome sketch where the bottom portion of the sketch is patterned DP and the top portion is embossed.
I was cleaning up a few days ago for our guests this weekend and found (or re-found, I should say :) this Martha paper from last year hidden at the bottom of this pile that was behind another pile :) and was psyched to be able to use it - I LOVE this gum drop paper and thought it would go perfectly with this sweet gingerbread house from Taylored Expressions.
The top really is embossed (in dotted snowflakes)
but you can't see it come through because of the light on the picture).
I had so much fun making this card! Its officially August folks - so if you would like to get crafting on some holiday cards - check out the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog and play along - and check out the wonderful holiday merriment that was created by all the wonderful women on the DT for this week's sketch!
Please come back later this morning where I am SO psyched to be able to show you something "berry" special (wink!)
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!
