The Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenge is coming to a close for 2011 and I have really enjoyed the monthly sparks of creativity. That is, until November. That month, our hostess Lynn Mercurio announced that Clean and Simple Style was the theme. I am sure Lynn thought she was doing everyone a favour choosing something simple. However, this is the theme that was my nemesis. I am not comfortable with white space. I don't do simple. And one look at my crafting space dispels any notion of clean.
It took a month and a half but I finally got inspired. I don't actually need any more Christmas cards, but little gift cards will come in handy as I shift into baking and gift-wrapping mode this week.
The rule was they needed to be completed in about 10 minutes, and once I had the idea for these, that's about how long they took, even with the heat-set Swarovski crystal in the center. They run about 3.5 inches square and I cuttlebug embossed the card front before adding the Frame It layer with the Very Vintage Christmas Stamp Set snowflake at its center.
Clean and Simple Style vanquished! I have entered this in the WMS Sketch Challenge, too.
