Holiday Wishes - 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown

I have another card share for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and it's a sketch challenge this week. When I was pulling my Counterfeit Kit I forgot to add a couple of sheet of Christmas Paper, but then I realized I had the red and white Wahsi Tape.

Since I didn't have my Unity Stamps put away I'm using them again. I stamped the tree onto white cardstock and cut it out.  I just didn't like the way it looked matted in cardstock so I decided to use vellum.  I cut the washi tape in half as it looked way to wide for my stamp.

Each card has a different color of rhinestones where the elements go and a red one for the tree topper. Instead of using paper on the inside as a border I just wrapped the washi tape around the white mat then stamped the "holiday wishes" sentiment inside.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love, Love, Love that you were able to use your February kit to make Christmas cards!!! I was thinking of trying the same thing since I have a few reds and greens in my kit!

Super cute Cindy and good eye for the vellum it gives the stamped image center stage with a nice red backdrop with the washi

Oh I like that. It has a floating feel to it.

I'll be holding onto the idea of matting with vellum - so perfect for a Christmas card.

lovely cards
