OLW 41 - Early Christmas

The OLW41 challenge is to use red and green on a one layer card (OLC) with minimum embellishment if at all. I had fun creating this card and my stamp-a-ma-jig was my best buddy. :-).

All products used are from Stampin Up

cardstock: Whisper White
stamps: Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Short & Sweet
inks: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Basic Black

I created a Christmas tree shaped mask using a standard post-it note. Then I stamped the short and sweet sentiments in alternating colours. Finally, I sponged over the same coloured ink over the sentiments. I topped off with a snowflake (and rhinestone) and used Merry Christmas as the base.

It's pretty clean and simple though not as much white space as Susan's card (see below).

This actually fits the current Play Date Cafe challenge #69, in terms of colour so I'll enter it there too. It'll make a nice foil for my other PDCC entry which is a big departure from CAS!
