Happy Little Stamper's March Christmas Challenge

Here we are in the third month of the year - how are you doing with your Christmas card creating?  I hope you are playing along with our Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stamper's each month so you will have some cards ready in December.

Our challenge is always "Anything Goes" but we do add an optional theme if you wish to play along with it.  This month the theme is Twine.

I did not add twine to my card.  I used a stamp from Woodware Stamps for my trees.  I had made the background paper on my gelli print.  I stamped first on the background which had some ink smooshing going on and also stamped on the background paper.  I fussy cut the trees out.  This was an easy image to fussy cut.  I glued the gelli print trees to the stamped background.  I added a gold die cut for the sentiment.  Below the trees, I added clear Stickles to give the look of ice and snow.  I matted the background with more gold and then added a layer of the same paper used for the trees.  This was all added to a kraft card base.

Here is a close up of the sentiment and the Stickles below the trees.

Here is a close up of all the layering.

I even made a coordinating envelope.

I made six of these cards so I am getting a little closer to being ready for Christmas.

Please join us at Happy Little Stampers for our Christmas Challenge.

Your card has such a homespun feel to it that I didn't even notice you didn't use twine until you mentioned it. Love the envie too!!!
