Christmas Card Challenge

Several of my friends and I are doing a 2010 Christmas Card Challenge for ourselves. We each picked a number of cards to make that seemed manageable each month, and by the holidays we'll have enough without having to scramble! I love things like this - they keep me focused, motivated, and interested in the cards.

For January I chose a soft color palette that is a departure from "normal" holiday colors. I love to use non traditional schemes like this! I kept the card very simple, and made six (yes - 6!!!) in under an hour. Woohoo! What a productive morning :)

The only thing on my card that isn't made by Stampin' Up is this small white dew drop - but I could not resist adding it to the tree. I haven't made an all SU card in a while so this was a good exercise for me. I'm really trying to keep up with my New Year's goal of *using* what I have!

Materials:
  • Cardstock/Paper: SU Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, SU dp
  • Stamps: Scandinavian Season, Warm Words
  • Ink: SU Groovy Guava
  • Tools & Accessories: paper piercer, Tim Holtz Design ruler, dew drop, guava ribbon
