Moxie Fab World Shabby Chic Christmas challenge and 2 Sketches 4 You


Today I am combining challenges since my time before school/work starts back is quickly approaching. I decided to make a shabby chic Christmas card for the Moxie Fab World challenge(http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2009/08/stretch-your-holiday-style-vintage.html) and also the 2 Sketches 4 You blog sketch (http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/2009/08/lauras-sketch-33.html ). I made an A2 card from cream cardstock and did a vertical fold. I then cut patterned paper to fit entire front of card(daisyd's) and inked edges to antique. Next, I attached the sticker to the top left side of card(Penny Black Stickeroos - White Christmas). I used a Q-tip to antique edges of sticker once it was attached to the card. I then made a frame from a paint chip sample of a wood stain using 2 sizes of Nestabilities dies. I attached the frame over the greeting on the sticker with pop dots trimmed to fit. Lastly, I attached the poinsettia to the bottom right corner(Making Memories). Thanks for stopping in.
