Country Christmas

This is pretty much a CASE of a card I saw recently in a online card class.  I used the same die and design but that's about it.  The die is from Simon Says Stamp and the patterned paper is from Paper Studio.  Mainly just some scraps I had left over from another project.  The card base is Kraft card stock.  It's a little different for me and almost to the point of being "busy", but it's another Christmas card completed.  I usually send my Christmas cards out the first week of December, but that's going to be hard to do this year I think.  I'm getting ready to shower you with Christmas cards!

I'll enter this in the challenges at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets) Dies R Us (Christmas-Anything Goes).

Thanks for stopping by...........

This is a very nice card. I love the muted colored mixed with the bright red. It all came together to make a super pretty card. I'll take the shower of Christmas cards. I need ideas, however I think I'll be sending out store bought cards this year. We'll see if I get enough energy to make even a few. Have a fantastic day.

This is more layered for you, Lynn, but it is a scrumptious and gently layered rustic card which I love! Great way to use snippets, too! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family if I don't get back before then! Hugs, Darnell

Lynn, I love this card and am really impressed with the way you did the dove-tail flag on the two different layers! So creative. Great combo of soft and bright colors. The die cut sentiment and snowflake are just so perfect. :-D

Carol L said...

I love how you layered all the elements on this country-styled card! I love the trees, patterns and colors, and especially that beautiful embossed vivid red background! Well done!

Brenda said...

I am loving your country Christmas card Lynn! The papers are so pretty and how sweet that you were able to use up some snippets too. That is always a plus. Yes, a bit busy for you, but still very pretty! Yea, I'm not sure about getting those cards out the first week of Dec. I know it won't happen for me! Bring on the Christmas cards Lynn, I'm ready to see them! lol Hugs, Brenda

Nancy in Iowa said...

This is an awesome card! Love all the elements - great die!!! Subtle colors are beautiful together! I like!

Monica said...

Hi Lynn, the printed paper looks like vellum and I love the button and the die cut sentiment. Very different from your clean and classy cards but attractive none the less.

Hope all is well,

Monica with love

Bonnie said...

I love this die! It makes the nicest cards! I love that bit of embossed cardstock with the decorative papers! It is coming up time to get those cards out!

Jessi Fogan said...

I myself feel like it's now ALL CHRISTMAS ALL THE TIME over at my desk :) This is fabulous - the kraft base really grounds the busy parts. Love the button!

nwilliams6 said...

Very heartwarming with the quilt look and colors. Love the way this looks! I need to look into this class. Hugz

MaryH said...

This one is different styling for you, but I love it! That frame outline with the sentiment, around the patterns of the banner & your tree paper, and on top of the kraft base...it's gorgeous. You did GREAT! Bring on the Christmas cards! TFS
