I've gone for a folksy feel on my first card for 2015. The stamps and paper are from different companies, but they work really well together. I cut two coordinating pieces of design paper to cover the base of the card and then adhered a silver glitter sticker over the top to hide the join. I used marker pens to selectively colour the stamped image and matched the colours to the papers used. I cut it out with a die (one that hasn't been used for ages). I made the mat layer by drawing round the outside of the die. I finished the front with a bold sentiment on a white banner. On the inside I have another mat in green gingham and a simple greeting on the white panel.
There's a really good reason for joining in with our weekly challenges, if you make one card every week during the year, you'll have a stash of 48 cards ready at the beginning of December. Of course, if like me you make more than one card each time, you make have even more cards ready. This challenge helps to reduce stress at Christmas. Looking forward to seeing your creations.
This is beautiful Deb and you always finish off the inside so perfectly as well. That stamp set is great with that DP.
this is so pretty - gorgeous paper - Jacqueline xx
