Absolutely Merry Christmas

Hello Lovely.  It seems as though winter has finally come to Alaska.  I'm not complaining, we had a beautiful, longer than usual, Fall.  It started snowing on Sunday and has been snowing off and on ever since.  It's a fine, dry, powdery snow, the kind that will blow away when the wind comes up.  Anywho... You're not here for the weather report, so let's get to the card.


This card was inspired by this week's CAS(E) this Sketch winner - CTS #294 Winners.  I found some green and white plaid in my pattern paper stash and it just screamed to be used in the style of the "Joy" card by Sentimentally Sue.

I knew I had the "absolutely" die from Simon Says Stamp, but I really wasn't convinced it would work out as I saw things in my head.  Yet here we are.

I updated the older pattern paper a bit by adding a thin gold line to the plaid.  Stamped Merry Christmas under absolutely and gold heat embossed it, along with a small snowflake die.  Used my mega roll of foam tape and popped the absolutely up on the plaid panel, added string to the snowflake and added it to the top, and finish the whole thing adhering it to a forest green card base.

I'd love to know what you think of my modern twist on this Christmas card.  Leave a comment below.

This is a set of four cards, and you'll be able to find it in My Shop soon!  I encourage you to send handmade cards this holiday season, whether you make them or purchase them from an artist like me.  Thanks for swinging by today.
