One Layer Couch Christmas Card

I have been eyeing this PTI eye set for awhile, and after a generous birthday card from my grandmother I decided to splurge (this isn't the only set, beware!). Susan at Simplicity is having a one layer Christmas challenge and I'm not really a traditional Christmas card kinda gal. Will you guys believe me when I say I don't make Christmas cards? So here's my take on a one layer Christmas card. Flourishes, Critter Sketch Challenge and Jill are also celebrating Christmas in July.

Materials: PTI stamps and sentiment, Versacolor red & green ink, Stampin Up black ink, corner rounder

I do love this set! It's amazing what the right color choices can do -- this definitely says "Christmas"!

Simply fabulous! I adore this take on christmas, not only with the colors but being with family at christmas time snuggled on the couch with your drink of choice! Well done!

Love it! That's a cuppa joe waiting for Santa. To be fair, it's kinda nice to see such a different take on a Christmas card.

I like it! It doesn't shout "Christmas", but subtly suggests it. ;)

What a warm and wonderful nontraditional card! Love the mug of cocoa on the table. Perfect touch!

This is a great card! It doesn't have to have trees and presents to be Christmas-y....this is perfect!!
