Hello!  It’s December, which means that Christmas is just a few short weeks away!  If you’ve been playing along with us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown throughout the year, you should have a nice stash of holiday cards ready to send to your loved ones.  To close out the year, we’re having just one challenge in December, but it starts today and lasts until December 18.  We’re inviting our challenge participants to create a card using any one of our challenges from 2015.

I’ve gone back to the start of the year with our January sketch challenge.  I’ve turned the sketch 90° on its side and put the fold at the top edge of the card.  The ornament is raised up from the card front with dimensional adhesive.  Since the sentiment was going to be stamped on a darker cardstock color, I chose a lighter shade of red than I did for the ornament, so that the two reds would end up as a close match. The gold cording is an older SU item that was retired quite some time ago. It’s a pretty simple and straightforward card, so I’ll stop chatting and share it:
