Today's project is my first Christmas card for 2013. By the time I completed my cards last year, I was totally burned out on the holiday (in more ways than one). But I did set a goal for this year to do at least 1-2 a month until I start another Christmas in July on the blog. It also represents my very loose interpretation of the Week 2 sketch for the Viva la Verve January challenges. I received the Pink Paislee City Sidewalks 8x8 paper a little too late in the season to use much of it so I really wanted to cut into it more. I replace the circle in the sketch with the oversized snowflake Die-namics from My Favorite Things that I purchased in an end of year sale. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen and then added a bit of sparkle with white glitter. I stamped the sentiment from the Verve Holiday Phrases set in the center of the snowflake. I tried the 3.75 x 7.5 size again for my 4x8 envies. Easy!
