AAA Cards Game #119 – Christmas in July

Hi! I’m back with some Clean and Simple Christmas cards for AAA Cards Game #119.

Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, BUT for this game please feature an CHRISTMAS theme. AAA Cards is a SUPER CAS challenge. If you’d like to play for a prize make sure to follow our CAS guidelines.
  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured! This includes pre-patterned, pre-embossed and pre-textured cardstock and papers.

Our sponsor for this game is Happy Little Stampers.

For the Birds – Faith Sings – Geometric Bird 3 with Heart

Hello from snowy Maine!

I have a bright, bold and cheerful almost one-layer card to share with you.

I did some ink-blending, stamping, fussy cutting, die cutting and masking to create this card. Besides the red heart die cut negative, the rest of the card is one-layer. I used only ink-blending and stamping on the white card base.

This card was partially inspired by the following card that I made in February of 2016. Slide002

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace, and Happy New Year,

Melissa
