On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer...

and Vixen...

Good evening! Aren't these images beautiful? I had so much fun playing with them to make this card a few weeks ago. I didn't have a chance to share this card earlier, but I made it for Melissa Cash's sketch challenge on StampTV.

Card Details
Stamps: Holiday Cheer, Holiday Greetings
Paper: GinaK White & Black; DCWV patterned paper from the Sweet Stack
Ink: Memento Markers
Other: Nestabilities, Stardust Sakura Glitter pens, SU ribbon, button

This card went together rather quickly because the main patterned paper square (the chocolate layer) is actually one piece of paper - the white scallop and designs are all part of the cardstock. The trees were stamped once with Memento markers and then stamped off slightly to the right to produce more of a forest look.

Here's the inside...

I wish I wouldn't have stamped the sentiment in the trees... but, live and learn, right?

See you tomorrow night for another blog hop event. We'll be featuring Asela Hopkin's First Christmas stamp set. I'll also have another Class Kit card project that will be available then too. The Festive Frame Card Kit that I shared a few days ago, is available for purchase online HERE.

I love the way you always finish the inside of your cards. I'm usually in such a hurry to get the cards out to someone that if I get a verse on the inside I'm doing good. I want to be like you when I grow up! LOL!

Just gorgeous! I love the colors and everything about it. Especially the part that you didn't like. I'm so glad to see that even a professional like you isn't perfect. LOL I've got OCD so bad I probably would have re-stamped the trees without the saying in them to put on the card but you know what? It doesn't look bad at all! And I would have been so stressed out about it all and wasted time.... etc. Thank you for being such a good example to me. (gosh, I hope this didn't come out wrong! I would never want to offend you!) I love coming to your blog and admiring your work. Thank you so much for sharing.

Love how you did the forest! The flying reindeer is awesome, too.
