Happy Christmas!


Greetings! It has been ages since I have made a card for a challenge over at Make My Monday.  I noticed their theme this week was to create a Holiday Project around "Santa, The Big Guy."  I just acquired this gorgeous set of images from Artistic Outpost called Snowy Woods and thought I would join MMM's challenge.  I began with a background paper from Tim Holtz, which I distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The focal image and sentiment were stamped with Fired Brick Distress Ink and the edges were blended with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The focal image in my mind carries the card so I kept my embellishments to a minimum.  The burlap, snowflake, button and burlap string are thank you gifts from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  The tartan plaid bow, game piece and cheese cloth are from my stash.  I am also entering my card over at the November Artistic Outpost Referral Program.  Thanks for dropping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Just a beautiful Christmas card, Yvonne! Love that soft red rather than a more traditional *Christmas* red. This really speaks to me!

Hard to believe that Christmas is now less than a month away! Beautiful Christmas card, Yvonne! I love the reds and that fabulous Santa! So pretty is the button snowflake!

Snowy Woods is definitely my favourite Christmas plate - and I love what you've done here. The red is so strong, and the delicate inky distressing looks great. Fabulous ribbony fringe along the bottom too... Thanks so much for playing along with us at Artistic Outpost, Yvonne!
