The assignment is ODBD stamps. The challenge is Christmas in July!
It is time to start working on your Christmas cards and no better time than with a challenge. If you do not have any ODBD Christmas images, use what you have to make a Christmas inspired card or gift. We would love to see what you create!
I had to put my thinking hat on for a minute as I wanted to use an older ODBD stamp set....after all it is Stamping in Time, right? The purpose is to get those older sets out and ink them up and give them more attention ;D. For my card I chose a set from 2008 and it is called Joy to the World if you have this set you will agree with me that it is absolutely amazing!!!! The image is stunning and all of the sentiments and scriptures are perfect for any Christmas project.
Are you ready to see my very first Christmas card for this year?
Paper: PTI Rustic Cream, Kraft, Memory Box Spiceberry
Stamps: ODBD Joy to the World
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Aged Mahogany, Tea Dye, Antique Linen, Old Paper
Accessories: burgundy satin ribbon, burgundy rhinestones, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, Nesties Petite Ovals Large, Cricut Expression and the Storybook cartridge to make the tag
As you can see this card is pretty simple and actually does not require extra postage ;D
