CSAYL-Challenge 18

A great new blog started up this yr. Its called Christmas Stampin All Year Long and I love it! Those who know me know that I absolutely adore Christmas and have things related to Christmas going on all year. I especially love making Christmas cards, which is actually kind of funny because most people that I know dont even bother sending Christmas cards! Oh well, I stil adore Christmas cards! For this card I ended up with 2 versions. The first version I made specifically for CSAYL and we were to follow this sketch:

This is the card I came up with:
I also play along with a challenge at Splitcoaststampers called Christmas Card Challenge(CCC-09), where you are supposed to make a certain amount of Christmas cards every month. I have set my limit at 10 cards per month. The only thing I changed was the stitching along the side. I used 2 strands on the above card and while I like the look, I think it also looks a bit heavy. I switched it up by using just 1 strand of floss and making the holes less straight. That gave it more of a carefree look:
Supplies used(all supplies StampinUp unless otherwise noted):Paper:Whisper White,Real Red,Chocolate Chip,Kiwi Kiss and Holiday Treasures DSP; Stamps:'Yule Bits and Borders' and 'Perfect Presentation'; Ink: Riding Hood Red,Real Red and Glorious Green; Circle punch 1 3/8" and circle punch 1 1/4"; Cuttlebug and 'Distressed' folder, DMC floss #989
