Christmas From Our House To Yours, CSAYL

This week at CSAYL, we were challenged to use the following colors in creating our Christmas card:





At first I thought 'WOW! What a tough challenge with all those colors to work with!' But, I managed. Whew!! LOL :) All I could think of was a wintery stamp of multiple homes colored in those colors. I tried to use colors that came closest to this. So this is what I came up with. I chose to frame this as a window using the Spellbinders Die Negative Cut as well as the positive for the interior panel.

Christmas Stamp is by PSX, from 1995, #K-1603. Image is colored in with Copics, Marvy LePlume Markers & CTMH chalks. For the look of sparkly dimensional snow, I used a Martha Stewart Glue Pen & added Ultrafine White Glitter. The final touch was the sentiment panel that's also a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Diecut. The sentiment itself is from the SU set called "To You & Yours"--> That set seems to be one of my absolute favorite Christmas sets! :)

Thanks for Looking & Happy Creating! :)
