This is my second "One Layer Elegance" Christmas card for this January's challenge over at
Rogue Redhead Designs-Holiday Inspiration Club. This card was a tad bit quicker than the Last card I made. I only used two masks to create the ribbon in the middle, used the holy stamp from the RRD Christmas Cheer plat RRD014 and repeatedly stamped the image across the card. Using a ruler and red felt pen I drew the lines and then colored just the berries. The Sentiment is from the same plate of stamps and red Staz-On ink. I did do a boarder of holly on the inside of the card and I'm thinking I'll do the same boarder on the envelope. I don't usually do matching envelopes, but making my cards this far in advance I have the TIME! What a concept, huh?
You would think it would be easy to make Christmas cards in January, and normally it would (here it comes...LOL...) BUT It was nearly 80'(F) today.......January 25!! Our Januarys and Februarys are always cold any rainy with lots of wind. This is easy to remember cause the almond trees bloom in February, they are a very shallow rooted tree. Then the winds blow, farmers worry about loosing the blooms, cause those pretty little flowers become the nuts, BUT the wind usually kicks it up a notch and just blows a lot of the tree clean over cause the ground is saturated from the rain! And THAT is the cycle, tried and true I tell ya LOL. Now here it is 2014 and not a drop of rain since just before Thanksgiving. Very dry and so unseasonably warm it is scary. If it is 80' NOW, what is our summer going to be like, and what about spring???
