Chocolate, Yellow, Red, Green, and Blue… A Non-Traditional Christmas Card

Initially, I wanted to make a just because card, but then I got to thinking… “how easy can it be to make non-traditional Christmas card?”  I cut out a 4.25″ x 5 1/4 piece of International Bazaar Designer Series Paper and then looked in my scrap drawer where I throw all the left over paper from other cards and picked those colors that matched the design.

I then took he different size buttons from the Designer Buttons from the Regals Collection and used glue dots to hold them down.  I didn’t want to run string through them, so I simply layered the button with our basic rhinestones.

Don’t even think I came up with the design layout all on my own.  I used Merry Mondays design challenge #43  to create this very lovely card.

A big shout out to Florence!  Thanks for finding me on the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Finder.  I hope you enjoy the card I placed in the catalog.  It’s my way of saying THAK YOU for finding me.
