Merry Cali-Christmas!


Don't you love when you think up a card and it actually turns out just the way you envisioned it? Rarely does a finished project look the way I first planned it to look. Sometimes that is good and sometimes that is bad. LOL This one went from brain to paper in one easy movement. I love those days!This was for a swap on splitcoaststampers.com and I made 10 of them. My hand was killing me from all that distressing. I would love for this to be our family Christmas card, but I don't think my hands can take it. :)

All supplies are SUO:

cardstock: Very Vanilla, Kraft, Baja Blue, Brocade Blue
Ink: Brocade Blue, baja Blue
Acessories: 1" double stitched grosgrain in Baja Blue, blender pens, dazzling diamonds,, hemp, word window punch, colored pencils, cutter kit ( distressing tool)
Stamp Sets: Shellebrate, Warm Words ( on dormant list)

Cute! Sorry about your hand being tired- it was worth it! I think the distressing on the edges reminds me of soft, fluffy snow. Great for this card! TFS

Love the surfing snowman! Very nice - and not overdone! Maybe you could tear the edges of the paper for your xmas card to make it easier on you??
good job!

Distressing can be well....distressing to say the least. I distressed the edges of 16 pieces of cardstock for my son's bday invites....the top of my hand still feel like it's on fire. I love it when card comes together in a snap though. My City of David card was like that.
