Clean & Simple Christmas
August 08, 2011
I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. I spent lots of time in the garden, despite the fact that it was dull, grey and cold here in Melbourne. Filling up the green waste bin with leaves has been an ongoing weekend chore for the past couple of months, but I think we are finally coming to the end. We also dug out some standard roses that were more possum food that anything else, as they grew to the top of the fence. They will be going to a good home, hopefully with less possums and I will be replacing them with some shorter roses in the spring.
Today, I have a Christmas card using a Clean & Simple sketch, that I have taken some creative liberties with. Here is the sketch. Banners seem to be quite prominent in cardmaking at the moment.
This is what I came with. The brushed metallic mixed cardstock pack is retiring, but will be replaced by gold and silver that can be purchased separately.
