15 Weeks Until Christmas

There are only 15 Weeks Until Christmas?! Even though I have been counting down each week since May, when 32 weeks remained until Christmas, I am still surprised how few weeks we have left.

While I had some trouble with ideas for using the Santa's Helper image from Digistamps4Joy last month, I felt my card with this month's image, Two-wit twooo, came together fairly quickly.

I used the following materials to create the card: Two-wit twooo from Digistamps4Joy printed on Georgia Pacific white cardstock. The image was colored using Sargent Art Water Color Pencils and a CTMH Medium Waterbrush (retired) was used to blend and soften the colors. I fussy cut the image using a craft knife and glass mat.

The pre-cut and scored card base is 6.5" high and 5" wide. I covered the card with CTMH Kraft Cardstock (Z1375) embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (Z1996) and inked with a Chocolate Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2111).  The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of white cardstock using the My Acrylix® To You And Yours stamp set (B1403) and New England Ivy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2135) then layered on a scrap of red cardstock. I used two Memory Book Glue Dots™ (1772) layered on top of each other (to raise the image) to attach the fussy cut image and 3-D Foam Tape (Z1151) to attach the sentiment.

I am linking my card to the Digistamps4Joy September 2014 Monthly Christmas Challenge and Decosse's Dynamite Doodles 12 Months of Christmas Card Link Up.

I hope you think I used the image in a pleasing way. Thanks for visiting my blog today.
