Mele kalikimaka!

Good morning!

Popping in for a quick share.  Hope your weekend is going well and that you're having fun wrapping up all the holiday crafts and gifts on your list.  Here's a card I made using no pattern paper!  I heard some of you gasp, but it's true.  (hahaha)  I sometimes like to make my own backgrounds.  For this card I used stamps from Yumi & Fumi Handmade, Dandelion Designs & Stampin' Up.  The embossed background is a Lifestyle embossing folder which is slowly becoming one of my favorites.  For my color scheme I used the current Yumi & Fumi December photo inspiration and for a little fun added some green to the mix. I had a few of those Tim Holtz Christmas trees left over so I used one and distressed it a little, added a ribbon then mounted it on to kraft cardstock and it was done.

The fun thing about making your own patterned paper is you can add anything you like.  I went super simple with two stamps but used two different colors to stamp with.  Adding the embossing gives it a really nice texture.  This card has already found a home with a very sweet crafty friend.  I hope she likes it.

Don't forget you have a few more weeks to play in our current monthly challenge at Yumi & Fumi Handmade.  Link up HERE.
