Watercolored Christmas with Pals Paper Arts


Before I share my thoughts about this card I’m gonna say that I’m not the type of card-make that gets a “vision” sort-of-speak of the card I’m going to make, not even when it’s a card sketch. There’s no real science or college degree needed to make cards.  The only important this to have FUN!  That’s it folks.


Although I feel more skilled than I was four years ago when I joined Stampin’ Up!, I feel I’m better now because like medicine, it’s a practice (lol), we’re all card-diologists.


My card was made specifically for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch 272. 


  • Fringes.  I added the golden fringes to the bottom of the designer series paper to stick to the sketch of the challenge (see below).  I wasn’t sure how it would turnout, again, I don’t get visions in my head, I simply just tried it.  Had I not liked the way it looked, I probably would’ve just taken it off.
  • Vellum.  I wasn’t sure where to stamp the sentiment and thought it’d be a good idea to use vellum. Pow!  Loved it.  The 2013-15 In-Color sequence finished it all off.

Get to know my Circle of Pals.  My group is mostly all hobby demo’s who join for the discount on paper-crafting supplies don’t want the commitment of holding classes or being a salesperson (yuck right)!?   I welcome these types of demo’s with Arms Wide Open, so don’t fear a committment or a penalty if you sign up for the discount.  Heck, you can even team up with a friend because my team is a non-hassle, non-committment, no sales requirement team.  What does that mean?  Read it  here.
