I can't believe that I am actually making some Christmas cards! Oh boy, maybe this way I will have them all done when it actually comes time to mail them! Ha- This week on the Magnolia Challenge they have us using a Magnolia stamp to make a Christmas card, it didn't have to be an actual Christmas Image but just to make it holiday"ish". So I had this Rufus and I have not used him AND I got this tree which I love and have yet to make anything with (never mind all the times I stamped it, colored, and messed up!). Anyhow I knew what I wanted to do with Rufus and the tree and that was to put lights on the tree. The little box of ornaments, that is from my Precious Moments stamp and I stamped it, colored it and cut it out and popped it up. The paper is what is cool- not your traditional Christmas paper but love it once again- used the Rose Red from SU as the layering color with some stitched ribbon. The tags are die cuts w/ my sizzix, had to ad a little snowflake too! Then finished off with a star button on the top of the tree. Now- some of you may ask, how could it be Christmas with the beautiful leaves on the trees? Well here in Michigan that is not possible you are right but I started thinking that not everywhere do you have tons of snow and leafless trees- so I figured I could get away with it. Do tell- what do you think?
