Christmas Card Catch-Up, Week 2


Oh my goodness...we've made it to week TWO!  And I have two whole Christmas cards to show for it!  I think this might be a record.  Thanks to all of you for your support, and to those of you who are joining in, WE CAN DO THIS!

For this week's card, I decided to try an accordion style card using a Silhouette file for the cut, and I just altered it a little.  The snowflake paper is from DCWV and the rest is just scraps from my stash.  The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Paper Co.


Here's a shot of the card opened up...



The original cut file just had a flat picture of a wreath and a bow.  I decided to go a little 3-D and make a more realistic looking wreath.  It was made using a Martha Stewart Branch punch.  I really love the way it came out!


So....who's up for the challenge with me?  Have you got your first two Christmas cards of the year made yet?

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
