A Christmas Card! Yeah Me!

Hi Friends and Fellow Crafters! I finally made a Christmas card! OK, I did make a few over the summer that I didn't get a chance to post, but this is really the first one that I've made during the Christmas season. It's for my Mom's home health aide. Her daughter is big into cheerleading so I used a couple of Cheerleaders from the CCR exclusive Cheerleading.

Here is the inside:

Here are close ups of the cheerleaders. I added a Santa Hat to their uniforms from Joys Of The Season. They just tickled me!

The green solid cardstock is from CTMH, the red is from Recollections and the patterned paper is from K&Company. The cheerleaders red and green uniforms are velvet paper from SEI. I love that paper! The brown, skin tone and grey shadow are from my stash.

Everything was created using my Gypsy and cut using my Expression 2. The snowflakes are maybe from Accent Essentials, I am not 100% sure because they have been in a box of left over cuts that I've had forever. :-)

The best part about this card is that I only used my stash to create it!
I really enjoyed creating this card and I hope the health aide enjoys it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy Crafting!
