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 used cardstock this week:

Stephanie says, "For my primarily die cut card, I die cut a stitched circle as a backdrop for my PoppyStamps Whittle Friendly Snowman cut from white, black and a watercolor marker colored pink cardstock (I colored his nose orange with a marker).  I used the sketch from the BYSH Cardmakers and swapped the paper strip with the Poppystamps Frozen Flakes Die Cut.  I finished with a sentiment from Memory Box and a few bits of pink bling in the snowflake centers."

Lauren says, "At first glance, you may think I've cheated and used a cloudy patterned paper, but no... it's Avery Elle's Cloud Mat Die, on which I've used the "inset" diecutting technique. I cut the background from a rich colonial blue cardstock, the clouds from bright white and the frame from a pebbly texture of lime green. I used an older Memory Box pine tree with an appropriately deep green cardstock and Tim Holtz's Sizzix "Reindeer Flight" on copper glitter cardstock. The snowflake is Impression Obsession (cut from ivory shimmer cardstock) held on with an Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Brad. The sentiment flag is from around the millenium, I think, so it's exciting to finally use it up!"
