Happy Saturday Fellow Stampers,
You are not going to believe this but it is only 8 more days until Christmas. With that said welcome to Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge where we challenge you to make a Christmas card. I think Christmas cards are my all time favorite type of card to make. There are so many kinds of cards to make.
For my card today I am using one of Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co, December release sets for my card. I totally love this new set called New Pine, I used Christmas in the Country for the sentiment. I am using Deep Olive, Cherry Crush and cream colored cardstock from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. Since I am in this new creative mode of trying new kinds of cards I chose to try for the first time a Swing card. After messing up one piece of cardstock by scoring wrong (hope I can use as scrap paper) I was pleasantly surprised how well it turned out. I stamped my background on the olive cardstock with True Thyme ink. Then I stamped my image onto the cream colored cardstock and colored it with my Copic Markers. I then mounted it to my cherry slush cardstock and then to the base of my card. I finished off the card with some green gems and some Christmas buttons. I hope you enjoyed my card. Make sure you stop by Mark's Finest Papers blog to join in on the fun. Thanks for stopping and commenting, I hope to see you again. Have a blessed day.
