colourQ 177

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

I know that Christmas was a couple of months ago, but the colors this week at colourQ made me want to dig out some stamps and get a head start on my Christmas cards for this year.  



I didn't go over the top with a Christmas theme but kept it simple and used some of these fantastic snowflake die cuts from amuse studio and Taylored Expressions.  And I based the layout of my card on the Sunday Stamps sketch that I turned on it's side.


The colourQ ladies have created some great cards this week so be sure to head on over to check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery this week!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Signature Christmas (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories:  Snowflake Trio die (amuse studio), Make a Snowflake die (Taylored Expressions), Deckled Rectangle die (Spellbinders), Basic Pearls (SU)

It's NEVER too early to start on Christmas cards. Love this one...wish I had enough confidence to try sewing on cards.

Wow, Jen, this Christmas card is so simple and wonderfully elegant! I love the little pearls, and especially the way you created a "frame" on the white piece. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunday Stamps.
