WWC205 - Donna's All About Holidays Challenge

https://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.com/
Holidays throughout the year are great card-giving occasions and it's always nice to have them made and ready to go. Like, for Christmas cards, instead of scrambling at the last minute.

For my Christmas card this week, I used a set that I loved as soon as I saw it in the catalogue a couple of years ago. Once I got it however, I drew a blank when it came to using it.

This week, I came across it during one of my on-going, not-always-successful attempts to get organized and decided it was time!
 After all that, this is a pretty simple design: stamps, ink and cardstock. And a little bit of bling.

I stamped the palm tree and the seashells with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with various Stampin' Blends. The "sand" was created with the mountain-shaped image from Waterfront with Crumb Cake ink.

For the strings on the shells, I used some Sharpie ultra-fine tip markers. Some of the shells got a Basic Rhinestone for some sparkle. And to continue with the tropical theme, I used Coastal Cabana cardstock for the card base.

I thought it was fitting to set it on one of my shell trivets that I brought back from a trip to Maui many years ago.

Wondering which holiday the rest of team picked? Check it out at Watercooler Wednesday.
