Christmas Card for a Challenge!

I finally got my card finished for the Caardvarks challenge: COLOR! I loved how this card turned out, but it's definitely not one I will be making in bulk to send this year! I used a white, long card (4x9) for my base. Then I stamped the tree (CA Rubber Stamp Co.) on white and matted it on black, glossy paper and attached it to the card base. I used self adhesive borders at the bottom and stickers for the "dec 25". The tree is water colored and then I used glitter and rhinestones to embellish. I wrote "Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches!" all around the border.

I am slowly recovering from Thanksgiving and all the family "togetherness." I did venture out at 4:30 a.m. for the black Friday sales- first time ever. I must say, I got lots of awesome deals, a good head start on Christmas gifts, and had energy for the rest of the day. BUT... the professional black Friday shoppers are C R A Z Y. It was definitely an experience...

Have a nice night and stay cozy before a new week begins!


  1. That is the ultimate Christmas card. If it doesn't win something, then the challenge is fixed!!!!

    Can't wait to see all of your new purchases.

    Thank goodness my (yet another) new frig is being delivered tomorrow, so yours should be ready to travel by tomorrow afternoon or evening!

  2. Such a pretty card! I love the more contemporary papers/stickers mixed with the classic tree image! Great job with the Caardvarks challenge!
