The Card Concept Challenge #164- Rustic Holliday

Hello my stampy friends!

Welcome to a NEW challenge starting today at the


Isn't this inspiration board warm and cozy?

I would love to cuddle under that blanket with a warm hot chocolate and read a good book!

I was inspired by the vintage feel of the photo to create my 

Mixed Media Style card.

2 or more mediums

    (inks,embossing powder, pencils,watercolor, ets)

May include dimensionals

(Embossing paste, gesso, fabric, papers, foil)

May include heated elements

Can be a variety of styles

(Clean & Simple, Graphic, Shabby Chic, Grunge)

I had this gorgeous paper (Christmas Patchwork-Stamperia), and I knew it would be perfect for this card!

I followed this sketch to create my card, except I made it an A2 size card!

I die cut some pretty poinsettias and greenery for the focal point in the lower left corner. I stamped a sentiment in the upper right corner. I think the beautiful papers make this card!

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge!
I love seeing all of your beautiful creations!
