Welcome to the Thursday Create Challenge by Create with Connie & Mary. I used scraps of Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper (DSP) for my card today, hence the “Scrappy Christmas.
I used traditional Christmas colors. Real Red and Mossy Meadow (red and green) For me, the simplest-looking card is one of the more challenging to design. Although I love how it turned out, I tend to be more of a ‘symmetrically OCD’ type designer. How about you?
The strips of Boughs of Holly DSP range from 3/4″ to 3/8″ wide. I started with 4″ lengths and then randomly cut them to the length I wanted. Each card will undoubtedly turn out different and, that is OK.
Scrappy Christmas Details:
I have actually given you most of the details already. My A2 card has a Real Red base with Mossy Meadow for the first layer and Basic White for the second layer, each layer cut 1/4″ smaller that the previous one. What do you think of the beautiful font used for the sentiment? I love it! This is from the Brightest Glow stamp set that is made up of all sentiments. I showcased the Real Red inked sentiment in a Labels Aglow die. Fancy!
On the left, you can sneak a peek at the inside of the card. It is layered the same as the front with an added piece of DSP to tie it to the card front.
And, there you have it; a beautiful sentiment in red with a 3/4″ strip of DSP. I hope you like the card and will try your hand at a Scrappy Christmas card. Stampin’ Up! DSP makes designing for the card so much easier than it could be. Why? Because the twelve double-sided sheets found in one package all work well together. So, don’t throw those Christmas DSP scraps away.
