Challenge Christmas Cards

Here today to enter a few challenges.  My first card is for Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge CAS (clean and simple).

This was really simple to make. I used DCWV "Evergreen" stack for my card base. I heat embossed Merry Christmas using silver embossing powder and a $1 stamp from Tuesday Morning's on green cardstock. The little tree embelishment is from Recollections and the green striped paper is Paper Studios  "Holiday Cheer" 6x6 pad.  I used foam adhesive for dimension and found a scrap of green ribbon from my stash.

Second card is for the sketch challenge at Pink Elephant.

I used the same 6x6 paper pad "Holiday Cheer" for the green strip and patterned paper. I mounted a K&Company die cut onto red card stock which I also used for my card base. On this card I used Vintage Photo distress ink on all the edges. For dimension I popped up the die cut and the red cardstock. A red and white gingham ribbon was the finishing touch. 

Thanks for viewing my cards. On to another project.

Bye, Bye for Now
