deck the halls

i sent out 95% of my christmas cards today! it felt good! but i still have a few more stragglers to write and send. and since i was in the spirit, i made another christmas card while i was at it! :)

i was inspired by the current challenge at runway inspired which has this as their inspiration picture:

wacky, right?! i love it! lol!

so i went with the colors, and came up with this completely non-traditional christmas card! and i'm in love with it!
i used two sweet stamp shop stamp sets: tree traditions (which i have been wanting FOREVER) and holiday sentiments! fun!

the car and tree are paper pieced and popped up with foam squares for dimension. and i added glossy accents to the windows and light. the snowflakes and sentiment are heat embossed and i used some fun 'street' washi for the road! i think this is so fun! ha ha! and even sort of masculine! if there is such a thing for a christmas card! :)

so that's it! it's finally friday! and i can't wait to start the weekend! read: sleep! i'm exhausted! lol!


  1. Hi Samantha! Love your non-traditional Christmas card! GREAT idea to use the inspired photo for the colors! So glad that you join the fun with us at RIC!

  2. You are so talented, Sam! Love how you interpreted the inspiration photo! Many people considered RIC a color challenge (including me) but it is a style challenge! Love your masculine Christmas card! Thank you for playing along with us in the Runway Inspired Challenge! :)

  3. Wow! I feel like you stepped way out of the box! Or out of your comfort zone. A car! No way. I would of never thought you would go there. But, I like it! :-)
