I found this card on Pinterest and wanted to case it so here's my version.
I pulled out a SNSS grunge borders stamp set I've had for years (and never used) and discovered one stamp that looked like a plank of wood! I used that stamp to make the wooden background by stamping on a kraft card base with different shades of earthy distress inks. Next I hand-cut the red and green banners and added a SB die-cut circle of retired SU! Christmas dsp, placing a strip of stamped kraft cardstock on top. The trees were made by stamping on snippets of red and green with Versamark and a retired SU! flannel background punch, then heat embossed with clear ep. I used a SU! tree punch to cut them and popped them up on foam tape. The "merry" was die cut with vanilla cardstock and a Sunny Studio die. I kept wanting to add more to this card, but ultimately decided to leave it alone and not over-embellish since it has a slight grunge look that I like.
I'm sharing this with the following challenges:
CHNC #342 - Christmas - optional to use a die cut
CHNC Challenge Extra for July 2017- Christmas anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for July 2017 - use patterned paper
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great week ahead!
