I've been working on Christmas cards lately so I can actually send some out this year. I got so busy making cards for others last year I totally missed the holidays:) I'm on the ball this year. I purchased the Authentique Wonder line a while back, and although I've been wanting to use it, it's so lovely that I've been a bit intimidated by it. That happens to me quite a bit. I buy paper that I think is so beautiful and then I'm afraid to use it. Occasionally I have to remind myself of the plaque hanging on my friend Stephanie's scraproom wall..."Life is short, use the pretty paper."
So I finally got my nerve up and made this card for The Sweet Stop DT Call:
My card was based on Sweet Stop Sketch #177, shown here:
This is a really fun sketch and translates beautifully to any style. I also decorated the inside where my verse is.
Here is my recipe for this card:
