Christmas Stamping!

Hi everyone!  It's Friday and time for the challenge at Christmas Stamping All Year Long.. and this week it's another fun challenge, so I hope you will play along. It's all about using punches... so check out what the Design Team has put together as inspiration.

When I saw that the challenge was about punches, I knew I had to make this card with it's clean and simple look. The door and panels are made out of cream linen cardstock and the wreath was created using a leaf punch (over and over and over!)



Really easy, right? I antiqued the edges of the door panels with tea dye, added a tiny satin bow to the wreath along with some stick-on jewels. I got the inspiration from something similar in the Elizabeth Moad's Quick and Clever Christmas Cards book... gotta give credit where it's due!

Thanks for stopping by.. I appreciate your comments. 'Til next time, have fun crafting, and be safe in all you do.
