"Christmas Madness" you say? What is that all about? Well, quite simply that I am beginning to design my holiday cards for this year and for the next month or so that is probably all you're going to see. I always endeavor to have my Christmas cards done by Dec 1 in order to get them all mailed sometime during that first week. The other reason for the title is that this is also my card for yesterday's MMSC #20. Hard to believe there's already been 20 of them. There were a lot of different elements to this card and it took quite a bit of time to put together. I started with a Brocade Blue base and then I took my Cuttlebug and brayered my swiss dots folder with Navy ink before I added my white paper and ran it through the machine. Next, I added two small strips of Kraft to the top and the bottom. I ran a piece of Mellow Moss through the CB. I stamped the tree from "Lovely as a Tree" on White Cardstock with Versamark and Navy ink, and then added irridesscent ice EP before heating. The sparkle doesn't show up in the picture; but it looks really cool IRL! I sponged the bottom of the image with Moss ink and the top with a bit of Bashful Blue. I stamped the snowflakes from the retired set "Frosty" in Craft White Ink. (In hindsight, I should have heated them to try it...but I didn't, so they smudged a bit) I used my CB and petite scallop nestabilities to cut the ovals before I stamped the sentiment from "Best Yet" in Burgundy ink.
That about does it for me. I was really happy with the way this one turned out and I hope you like it as well.
