Merry Christmas!

Yep - I am getting started now for this years Christmas cards! Call me crazy, but this way I can have fun, try new things and not stress over getting enough completed to mail on time.

I figure while I'm at it I might toss my hat in the ring for a few challenges here and there.

I have never created a sunburst card and I was very surprised at just how easy it was. I used a few double sided paper scraps, an adorable snowman from AMB Illustrations and Copics to ink him up. I believe all the papers are retired SU DSPs. I know black isn't really ever thought of as a holiday color, but I really wanted the papers to pop. I think it worked. I am working on a few other holiday cards, once they are done I'll let cha see.

  1. Black is perfect for popping other colors! I love the sunburst, and it's a great way to use up scraps, too!


  2. Adorable snowman. Good choice of patterned papers. Thank you for sharing with us at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Myrna

  3. Yes, the black does set off all the papers and is a great background for your cheeky snowman.
    Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.

  4. I love the paper and colors you choose to use to make your starburst. Such fun!! And yes, the black really does make all the bright colors really pop. Thank you for joining us at Christmas Card Throwdown.

  5. Wonderful card! I haven't made a sunburst card in awhile... always enjoy the wonderful papers to mix it up...
