SDD Christmas, Christmas is Drawing Near

Don't Miss out! Stamping With The Dragon has a huge Christmas celebration and challenge going on and you still have time to play!! We want to see your projects that are "Inspired By A Holiday Song." Hurry over and play along with us! You wont want to miss these fantastic prizes that are up for grabs!

You can view my post with all the challenge and prize info, here.

There are some great prizes, and two fabulous Grand Prizes, for those of you that use an image from Stamping Dragon and Dragons Lair Designs! You really really are going to want to play along for your chance to win!

Now that I have the big challenge reminder out of the way, I have a new card to show you. I wanted to go simple and show you what a pretty card you can make sometimes, just by using a sentiment and acetate. The sentiment is from Christmas Sentiment pack 1 from Stamping Dragon Designs.

I used white cardstock from my stash, and used Vellum tape to attach a pretty piece of pre printed Christmas acetate, to the front of the card. Then matted and attached the sentiment. Very simple, but pretty!

I hope this has given the beginning card makers out there some ideas and a little encouragement. IF you've always wanted to try card making but felt like you might not have the knack for it, please do jump in and try, with something simple like this. Everyone has to start somewhere!

I'm sending this card to my cousin and her fiance, for Christmas.
