Merry Christmas Keeping Christmas

Jan. 25, 2020

It's time for this month's installment of the Keeping Christmas Inspriration Blog Hop!  The Challenge Design Team is sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month!

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in your stash ready to go for December 2020!

So hop along and be sure to visit each blog.
There is a lot of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Kelly Lunceford (Creator)

 My card is created on an Olive Green card base.  I added a black panel on top of the base. I created a background on watercolor paper using Distress Inks.  I stamped the trees in black using the Rubbernecker Stamp set Winters Night.  The snow is from the same stamp set and I stamped it on top of the trees with white ink.  I love the way this turned out.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink.  It is a very simple and serene card.  I know it is not traditional Christmas colors, but I wanted it to look like the sunrise on Christmas morning.  I love the way it turned out. I made two of the same cards to start my stash for next Christmas.
