Howdy! How are you coming along with your Christmas card stash? I've got another Christmas card to share with you, and this one has a rustic, country-ish feel to it.
I started off with a Kraft card base (A2 size) and then I added a strip of the red paper from the Tradition 6x6 paper pad (Authentique) at the bottom of the card. Next, I cut a piece of green cardstock and added it to the top of the card. I cut a smaller layer of the Christmas floral paper from the same Tradition 6x6 paper pad and adhered it to the green cardstock.
I then cut the French Pastry Doily (Cheery Lynn Designs) from green cardstock and trimmed the doily in half. I glued one half of the doily on the floral paper. The other half of the doily has been set aside for another project. I then cut a strip of the off-white paper from the Traditions 6x6 paper pad and stamped the sentiment (Christmas Sentiments set by Impression Obsession) with green ink in the center. I glued this off-white strip right below the half-doily and then I added a Cranberry pearl to dot the "i" in the sentiment.
The last thing I did was die cut the Leaping Deer from Kraft cardstock. I affixed the deer to my card using Joy foam pads. I love how this deer mimics the red paper below - look closely and you'll see the white leaping deer on that paper. Neat, huh? LOL
