My Other Holiday Card

Here is the other card that I am sending out. I created 38 of these yesterday. Can you see why I ran out of Riding Hood Red Card Stock. I am not a red person, but I seem to like this shade.


I ended up making 74 cards yesterday, and I am so tired. The sad part is that I have about 50 more to go. I hate leaving this to the last minute, but this year was a doozy. I think I am going to start my card for next year in January.

I made several cards earlier with this technique of masking the house in the trees from Lovely as a Tree. I loved this idea, but I wanted a little something extra. So I colored the windows in with the Barely Banana marker, and I colored the wreath in with the Real Red Marker. This card looks so much better IRL, but I hope you like it anyway.

Stamps: To You and Yours, Lovely as a Tree.
Paper: Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Whisper White, Dots and Dashes and Holiday Treasures DP
Inks: River Rock, Riding Hood Red
Extras: Barely Banana and Real Red Markers, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Rectangle punch.
