Christmas Card

I am trying to get ahead for next year (so maybe I can actually get my cards sent out!) and the folks at One Stitch at a Time are helping me with that goal! They have a Christmas Club going on, where every 3rd Sunday they ask one of their talented design team members to pick a theme of their choice and participants can create things to fit that theme.  At the end of the year you'll have at least a dozen cards and they will give you something cool as a reward! Pretty cool and generous hmm? This week Nat picked a really fun theme so go check out all of the details at OSAAT while you can!

The card below features a digital image from Ooh-la-la Creations. I stamped the edges on the front and inside using a Christmas stamp set from Inkadinkado because Top Tip Tuesday and Sugar Creek Hollow asked us 'finish the card' inside and out, and I thought it was a splendid idea! I colored the hand stamped images using my Copics because I LOVE playing with my Copics, besides it's part of the Samuel Taylor Challenge!  I also went wild with my Stickles because I also wanted to play along with the cool folks at Paper Pretties! My card is also apropro for several other challenges, which are listed below! Hope you like my card!
