Hello for the second time today! I've seen a few blogs where people make Christmas cards through the year and have always thought that was a great idea. I came across Merry Monday earlier this week and decided to add it to my favourites in order to motivate me to get going on my Christmas cards!
This week's challenge is "tropical". At first, I drew a complete blank but then came up with an idea. My sister's name is Joanna, but I call her Kami - a nickname derived from camel. I always give her camel-themed or related gifts and cards. I found the fun camel image at bulkcolor.com and added a Santa hat from Miss Kate Cuttables. The palm tree is one I found online on Pinterest (the link to the original image is no longer valid).
The frame was cut using Stitched Rectangle dies from Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment is computer generated. I used distress inks to create the sand and sky background. The frame, camel and palm tree are all popped for a bit of dimension.
I'm so happy with how this card turned out - and am delighted that it's only March and I already have my sister's card ready for Christmas!
