SIP #21 Clean & Simple Christmas Wonderland

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Can you believe it's already November???  If you haven't started on your Christmas cards yet, you better get a move on it!  Christmas will be here before we know it!  So here's an opportunity for you to do just that.. Stamp, Ink, Paper has a Clean & Simple Christmas Challenge this week!  

Let me tell you...simple is easy for me but clean is not!  I absolutely love CAS cards but I tend to overthink them.  That being said, he's what I finally came up with.. Yes, I know it doesn't have a lot of white space but let's just pretend that the Pool Party Background DSP is White and we're good to go!  lol


So if you know me at all, you'll know that I was dying to stamp these gorgeous Wonderalnd trees on Whisper White cardstock that have been sponged with a minimum of 3 or 4 ink colors.  I would have then added white embossed snow.  But that's not Clean or Simple.  So I ditched the sponges for this one and stamped the trees and sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink directly onto Pool Party Background DSP.  I layered it on Whisper white, and then Pool Party onto an A2 Mossy Meadow Card Base.  I added three Silver Sequins and then walked away.. it was hard but I did it!  lol

The inside of my card was a layer of Pool Party that was stamped with the trees again on the lower left corner in Mossy Meadow.  I added the sentiment from Merry Everything in Mossy Meadow as well.
