Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #25 - 07-13-09

Hi Friends! Well, it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge time again and we are now on week #25. This week it's Debbie of "the Paper Garden" turn to host our challenge. This week, once again, is a fun one! Debbie wants us to create a card decorated both "outside and inside". How fun is that? Whoohoo!


I decided to use my Tilda stamp because I had already colored it a while ago so it was fairly quickto create this card.

The snowflakes are scrapbook embellishments by Jolee's Boutitque. I do have a lot of Jolee's Boutique embellishments because there was a clearance on Christmas embellishments last year and I bought a whole bunch of them. I was meaning to use them for scrapbook layouts but never had the chance to use them so they are sure coming in handy now. LOL!

Do you see the "brads"? Well, they're not brads, they're thumb-tacs. LOL! I snipped off the pointed side and glued them on to my card. I didn't have any olive colored brads so when I saw the thumb tacs. . I decided to use them . . .hey. . .whatever works!


Here is what I did with the inside of the card. I didn't really over decorate it because my card needs to fit into it's envelope and if I made it too bulky, it won't fit inside the envelope.

Anyway. . .I hope you'll play along in the challenge this week! Stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long challenge site and check out the fabulous samples the design team created

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday
