Newsprint Christmas

It's time for another Christmas card, courtesy of Merry Monday.  This week, I am the hostess and I've chosen the theme of newsprint.


I love the look of newsprint on cards, so when I saw this photo on Pinterest, I knew it was going to become my challenge.

For my card, I again went CAS, which seems to be my go-to style lately as my card-making time gets condensed.


I die cut a circle mask and placed that over my card base.  I then stamped SU's Dictionary stamp inside the mask with Fog ink and lightly sponged from the outside in to define the circle more.

After that, it was a simple job to die cut a sentiment, color it with Wink of Stella and stick on a few enamel dots.


Thanks for visiting.  I hope you'll find time to join in my challenge.  The rest of the design team have some wonderful and varied uses of the theme in their cards, so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Dictionary (SU)
Ink:  Fog (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, Green Apple (SSS)
Accessories:  Wet Paint Holiday dies (PTI), Enamel Dots

Cheers
Karren

Pretty card Karren. Love the circle with the dictionary print as your back drop to the die-cut greeting.

I love the way you've stamped that newsprint image. The soft sponging on the edges makes me think of a snow globe!
