New Christmas Card Challenge Blog

Just a quick post today: I've found a new Christmas card challenge blog! Check out Completely Christmas - they are only on their second challenge. You can find that challenge here. The theme is Anything Goes. 

I love this card. It was made with the envelope punch board. My friend bought one of these for us to share. We're splitting the cost because while we know we'll use it, we may not use it enough on our own to justify the cost. We also tend to discuss stamp purchases and sometimes if one is getting it the other won't. The stamp set used here, for example, was one I liked, but I decided not to buy it because it was a little too similar to some other things I have.

It's a little on the clean side for me. I have this urge to fill up that white space with some patterned paper or use some cardstcock and stamp some snowflakes or something. I think though, what I really need to do next time is use a different colour for the base and maybe run it through an embossing folder first. Part of the problem I'm having with it is that I generally don't care for Whisper White as a base paper. It's thinner than the other colours.

Card Details
Cardstock: Whisper White, Gumball Green
Ink: Gumball Green
Stamps: Bright Hopes 
Other: Season of Style Washi Tape, Silver Glimmer paper, star punch
