Winter Post

The color challenge at Dynamic Duos this week is Crumb Cake and a color of our choice.  I chose what is one of my favorite colors - Cherry Cobbler.  Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler scream Christmas to me so I made my first Christmas card of the year.  This card also qualifies for The Paper Players challenge this week, which is Christmas in July.

Another of my favorites is the Winter Post set.  I love the vintage images, so I went vintage for this card.  For the card base, the DSP layer and the sentiment panel I used the Music Notes wheel, and on top of that stamped the postmark and snowflake image from Winter Post, all in Crumb Cake ink. The main image is stamped on Crumb cake and colored using markers, so by necessity it had to be a quick job, with little time for shading.  The sentiment comes from Contempo Christmas.

Some sponging and the card was ready to assemble.

Thanks for looking.
