They're starting to stack up....









Christmas cards that is! I used this week's OCC challenge - a sketch - to add to my stack of Christmas cards. This is the first year I've actually managed to get some made before December - I'm sure I'll be short, but it's a good start.
This one uses a new stamp set from SU! called Contempo Christmas. I loved the sentiments with this one, and the funky style.


I inked the Christmas tree with Kiwi Kiss, then used an Always Artichoke marker to add some subtle colour variation to the pattern. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The simple sentiments in this set just make me happy - as does the clear mount option - no stamp-a-ma-jig used on this card!

Head on over to the OCC blog and feast your eyes on the wonderful design team creations!
