Cardstock Christmas

Today we're asking you to step away from the designer paper. Yes, put it away … none allowed … not even a scrap! Because the next prompt is to create a card using only cardstock. You can tear it, ink it, stamp it, spray it, emboss it … but stick to only cardstock for your holiday card design.

Here's how we created with cardstock:

Stephanie says, "Nothing goes better with cardstock than Die Cuts ... I used three different Memory Box Die Cuts to create my wintry scene (Vintage Sled, Tall Pine & Marvelous Pine). I tore some white cardstock for my wintry landscape and die cut the Tall Pine a second time from green cardstock for the pine boughs on my sled. The sentiment is from Memory Box Dashing with Reindeer."

Lauren's Card

Lauren says, "In the spirit of full disclosure, this card is a pretty direct lift from this sample made for the sweet Winter Narwhal stamp from Lawn Fawn. The star, the pink oxide background, the vellum are all pretty much a CASE. But since I wanted to make a full-size A2 card, I cut a bunch of the star frames and layered them to make a shaker (filled with Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Sequins) and I embossed a pink cardstock background."

Link your Cardstock Creations here by 6pm (EDT) on Wednesday, August 26th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:20:17.

Fun prompt and cards, ladies! I haven't been making as many Christmas cards this year compared to previous years, so I'm hoping to catch up in the upcoming months.
