My First Christmas Card Challenge DT post.

**** Please go HERE for my Craft Room ReDo Blog Candy. ****

Happy Sunday!

And welcome to my first ever Christmas Card Challenge post! CCC Week # 1 is to make a one-layer card.

Now, a clean and simple (CAS) card is not my usual style. In fact, I had to ask what was meant by a one-layer card, LOL (I know! Total loser!!!).

Once I found out, however, it wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be for someone who loves to layer and embellish like me. In fact, I've been dying to make this kind of card. Clean, white, minimal embellishments.

Here's my take:


I used one of the Gorguss girls, Little Heart, which I bought from ATS. I just love how Gorguss girls are so versatile and classic! I also used SOG's Deck the Halls Tobie for the stockings, sentiment, and candy cane stamps. The baker's twine is from Martha Stewart.

Remember that the only real RULE of the CCC blog is to make a new Christmas, Holiday, Hanukah, or Winter card. The challenges are totally optional. But no backlinking please! See the blog for more details and to link up your projects! Can't wait to see what you create, folks!

Here's a list of all the DT's blogs for more inspiration:

Hey Rinne! Great card! I'd say your winning!(ha ha, isn't that what Charlie Sheen would say?) I really want to play along with you in these challenges. One card a week and by next December all cards are done. Great idea! I'm going to give it a try. I really like how the colors you used on the girl stands out on the white. You are so talented my friend!

Have a great Sunday!
