I signed up for the fabulous Holiday Card Boot Camp, but life interfered and I didn't get a chance to start watching the videos until today. I'm giving myself a personal challenge of crafting one card for every instructional video I watch as part of the class, and here's Card #1.

It's quite a bit different from Kristina's example, but that's one of the things I really love about participating in these types of workshops. We can all be as creative as we want with the materials we have!

I used kraft cardstock, which I stamped with a Fiskars Layer Away Dots stamp using Versamark ink. Then I cut out two pieces of pattern paper from Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday collection, and used two different distress inks on them. The strip on the right is stained with Tim Holtz's Evergreen Bough Distress Ink, and the one on the left is stained with Tim Holtz's Iced Spruce Distress Ink. (These are both part of his limited edition holiday set.)

I added a sticker from the Reflections Dimensional Stickers Christmas Set, then punched a hole in the front of the card and tied a piece of SewEasy Fancy Floss from their Glitter Tertiary pack into a bow.

Finally, I punched another sheet of pattern paper from Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday collection, and stamped the sentiment using Colorbox Frost White ink. The stamp is from Inkadinkado's Christmas Characters stamp set.

And that's it for Card #1!
