One Layer Christmas Card

It's been a bit of a crazy year. I guess it always feels like that, so I'm not sure if this year has indeed been any crazier than any other, objectively measured. But indulge me. 

To make a long story short, a crazy year leaves less time for crafting. It also seems to suck the mojo out of me, so even at times when I sat down in the craft room, I didn't manage to produce anything presentable. Today however, I got super inspired by a gorgeous card by the talented Shery of STAMPlorations fame. And luckily for me, over here in craft world, we have this wonderful thing of CASEing someone, rather than saying we just nicked their idea... So thank you Shery for the inspiration, I hope you don't mind! I was also inspired by the inspiration image over at Time Out Challenges and the Big Bold sentiment theme over at Just Add Ink. I'm also linking up over at Stamping Sensations where the theme is (appropriately) Get ready for Christmas and Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge where the twist is CAS.

Card: white 200 gsm card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Merry Little Christmas Typografia Christmas, Layered Holly, Mixed Media Grunge
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Iced Spruce, Fired Brick, Forest Moss

A really pretty card. Love the soft green of your sentiments as contrasted with the crisp white and red. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

I love how you framed that large flowing sentiment with the holly at the corners and then linked it all together with that striking red border! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

Great the border; makes it so festive and leads the eye directly to the beautiful quote. Thank you for joining us at TIME OUT!
