CAS173 ~ Merry Christmas ~

It's Christmas in June!  I created my first Christmas card this week.  I promised myself I would not fall behind and have to mail out cookie cutter store cards this year!  To make the task less intimidating, I opted to do a clean and simple card for SplitCoast's weekly challenge.



I traced the chipboard "m" on DP and cut the paper letter out. I then glued it to the chipboard base and inked all the edges with distress ink. I altered my sentiment by masking off the letter "m" and some other embellishment with scotch tape before inking. I then removed the tape revealing the letter I needed to stamp. After stamping, I placed the chipboard letter where desired with dimensional foam. For interest, I drew a line around the edges. Thanks for stopping in! See ya soon!
