Christmas Stripe Card

I have a giveaway going on right now! Here's a small picture of the prize:


Hi everyone!

Since I wasn't able to make any cards for WCMD yesterday, I decided to make a card today instead. I also decided to play along in some challenges:

Sweet Stamp Shop - Sweet Saturday Challenge 4 (sketch)

(Yeah, I just now noticed that there is a designated place for the sentiment on this sketch. Ooops!)

Ellen Hutson - WCMD 2012 Challenge 1

I will also be linking up this card here:

The Crafts Meow blog

Moxie Fab World - Christmas Card category

Here's the card I made:

A nice and simple card, this one. I was very inspired by the sketch, but had to make the card a bit smaller then standard size while working at it to make it work better with where I placed the tape and the sentiment+image piece. I also had some serious issues with the green striped tape. The tape is not good quality like the original mt tape, because the adhesive sticks to the top side of the tape (the patterned side). The tape is from Love my tapes, and it's linked below (to where it's sold on Simon Says). If you're thinking of bying that particular tape, you may want to reconsider. But all in all, I am happy with how the card turned out =)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
