Is a card without pretty paper even possible?

Jingle Belles are determined to stretch me with their challenges, that's for sure.

You will know that my scrapping style is throw as much onto a page as I possibly can including several pretty papers from my never dwindling stash.

Well, I'd like to make cards like that too.

But this week's challenge #18, Cardstock Christmas suggested by Jess Moyer was to use only cardstock and embellishments. Gulp.

So, I kept it simple, using some pretty SEI elements onto a plain white background and a silver CC rub on for my title. And called it done!

So yes, it is possible. Just don't ask me to do it again!

  12. I love the dimension! It is getting a bit odd seeing these Christmas cards as we get near to summer, but still worth the eye-candy :) I'll be looking forward to more wintery cards when it's hot, maybe they'll cool me down. (I know, I'm cheesy.)
