Christmas Stampin All Year Long Sketch Challenge #13


Hi Friends!! Hey, it's Monday and it's challenge time again!! Christmas Stampin All Year Long has a new sketch challenge for you! We're on week 13 now! Awesome!!

Initially, it was difficult to be making Christmas cards so early in the year but as I made more of them, it's like a normal routine. Honestly, I'm just happy that I'm getting my Christmas cards out of the way. By December, I should have at least 40 Christmas cards to either give out, sell at the Christmas craft fare or give out as a gift set. It's sort of exciting.

Be sure to stop by the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog site and check out the beautiful Christmas cards that the design team created!!

Just a little info on my card. I stamped the snowflake images on the background on the SU Pink Pirouette card stock and heat embossed them with SU Iridescent Ice. I also did the same thing with the snowflakes in the circle shapes but I cut the images out and mounted the with foam tape to give them a 3D effect.

Anyway, I hope to see you playing along this week!! It would be nice to see your pretty Christmas cards!!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Monday!!

Stamps: SU Snowflakes, SU A Cardinal Christmas
