Christmas Card Challenge #9 -- Anything Goes

Sunday, January 26, 2014

It's time for another challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and this week is very easy -- make an anything goes holiday or Christmas card to add to your stash for Christmas 2014.

I used some embossing paste to create this fun background. It's so much fun to use and I love the dimension it gives.
I'll be entering this into the current challenge at The Card Concept which is to use texture. I think my card fits into the clean and simple category. 


Edited to add:  After looking at the discussion on the Card Concept about the difference between clean and simple and clean and layered, now I'm thinking my card fits into the clean and layered category?

As always, I truly appreciate your visit and comments. Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day.

...I'm thinking clean and layered too Alanna. This card obviously took you a while to make...so many great details! I have GOT to try stencils and embossing paste. I HAVE to! I love all the texture you achieved and still had lots of white space! I love the Christmas colored twine you used and the super-sized sentiment!
