This week our August hostess, Loretta Lock, has challenged the OCC to Christmas in August. With Christmas right around the corner it’s time to warm up those holiday stamps.
I was not going to do a card this week because I have been trying to create some Christmas cards for my daughter to look at.
She usually wants about 100 of them each year so I have to get started early.
As I finished with this card I decided it would be perfect for the OCC Christmas in August challenge. I wanted a card that would not cost a lot to make yet look very pretty. I normally do not do a monocramatic card but this one just evolved that way. I needed some ribbon and I decided to us some wrapping curling ribbon (cheap) and it just fit with the silver embossing and the black cardstock.
As I finished with it I was thinking maybe I need to make Jen some other cards so I can use them myself. This picture did not do the card justice. I also was thinking that there was another challenge using something you have not used for a while but I forgot where I saw it.
