Let it snow

So sorry I'm late everyone... I knew something would give in the recent weeks of craziness, and I completely forgot it was Tuesday today, so I'm due over here at Artistic Outpost.

I'm going to throw together a very quick post, with a very simple little Christmas card - you could probably make it in the same amount of time it's going to take me to write this!

 I used kraft cardstock, and stamped the adorable wintry cottage from the Midwinter plate in Coffee Archival.  I used a white pencil to add the snow to the scene.
I added one of the lovely new Christmas Chalk sentiments and edged the card using the Prima Chalk Edger in white.
Inside, I stamped the little '25th' also from the Christmas Chalk plate, and there you have it.  Simple, quick card-making, and simple quick post-writing!

Apologies again... Thank you for stopping by, and do come and play in this month's Referral Program if you've been using Artistic Outpost stamps in your creations.  We'd love to see you there.

How do you do it, Alison? This card looks terrific - a lovely, traditional, vintage creation. I would be delighted to receive a card like this and I would never believe it took only as long as writing a quick post! Julie Ann xx

A lovely restful feel to your card Alison. I am a huge fan of Kraft cardstock for Christmas cards and simply love the white pencil highlights.

Love the idea of the kraft paper base. I don't even own a white pencil. I really need one, don't you think? Great idea to add more snow. Love the chalk edging too!!! Make me think about making so quick Christmas cards. Yikes ... it's almost here! -- Mary Elizabeth
