Christmas Card #1

So, my stuff comes and it's like Christmas! So, I decided to make another Christmas card. I already had one that I was in love with, but when I saw the Season of Joy set, I thought, you can't have too many Christmas stamps. And I've never really understood the whole red & green thing. I mean, would you leave the house wearing red & green outside of the Christmas season? And even then, it's just not right. I mean, unless you like it. Then by all means, have at it. And I usually do blue & white. But I was having a hard time making this work with blue & white, so nonconformist purple & green it is. Now, don't quote me on this, but if Papertrey does end up doing a holiday set, I'll probably be adding to my collection and there may be yet another Christmas card. I'll probably be making more & posting more before that happens, but I thought I'd start with this one cuz I kinda like it. Plus, when I have more than one Christmas card, I'm not making a million of the same one, and that's good, cuz I get bored easily. So, to send out a variety of them would be fun. Yeah, it's easy to say that in August, right? Now, I'm off to go play with my Papertrey stuff that came today.

Stamps: Season of Joy & Perfect Presentation (SU!), Ink: Always Artichoke , Paper: Papertrey white, Always Artichoke & Elegant Eggplant (SU!), Accessories: Elegant Eggplant ribbon (SU!), tag punches (SU!), brad (making memories), Stampin' dimensionals (SU!)
