Hello everyone. I have spent some time crafting this weekend and making some Christmas cards ready for charity. Also – of course – having some fun…..
This card was inspired by the current challenge at Color Throwdown – to use Green, Kraft, and white.
It turned out to be a completely Altenew card – except for the sentiment – using an older stamp and die set, and a couple of new ones.
I used Altenew inks, and changed the greens a little for the second card. I didn’t add all the detail to the bells, quite liking the simplicity of them as they are. I was toying with letting the bells dangle on some string or such like, but added them as you see instead.
The sentiment is from a new stamp set I have yet to play with from Clearly Besotted ‘Hang Around‘ and has baubles and bows. I thought the French sentiment suited the card for some reason – so I went with it.
I have decided that I will be making several of each Christmas card ready for the charity event, I’m probably going to stick with the more clean and simple card. I say that a lot – then go and make things a little more complicated.
Anyway – it’s all about enjoying yourself, isn’t it?
Have a great day – catch you later. 🙂

Beautiful card. I like the way you have used the kraft and green colors. The die cut background looks great.
Thank you very much JoAnn. 🙂
