Clean & Simple Christmas


It's time for another Your Next Stamp challenge and this time we'd like to see your Clean & Simple Christmas cards.  

This was super duper hard for me.  This is not my style of cardmaking at all so I sat there starring into space wondering what the heck to do!!  LOL  (This has NOT been good for my MIA mojo!!  LOL)  I really don't think I've done this style of cardmaking justice, but I'm glad that I tried it.  After all isn't that what challenges are for?!?!  Once again, I've used Mini Christmas Tree but this time I added little gems for ornaments.  My favorite part is that I got to make a paper medallion again.  It turned out to be a very cool way to give the image center stage.  

I want to apologize for being such a bad blogger.  I am sooo behind in visiting everyone and leaving you all some love.... I really do feel bad and hope to catch up soon.  I hope you're enjoying this holiday season and getting things crossed off those never ending lists!!!  

Thanks for stopping by!
Wendy

Beautiful job Wendy!! I love the paper medallion, aren't those fun to make?

Kate said...

This is lovely, Wendy! I love the way you reused the tree, but gave it a completely different look. The medallion is a super way to pop the image too. I'm going to have to remember that trick!!

Don't feel bad - you've plenty going on & family is more important. Those lists are a tyranny definitely. I love this - CAS isn't easy but this I think is lovely & I love those gems & the medallion certainly does give the tree the focus of attention.
You take care of yourself. Tried to take a photo of the snowy mountains opposite our house so you could show your children but it is too far off.
Much love
