Hello Winter!

Hello Rubber Cafe' fans! It's Mary Ann here today to share a card I made with the fabulous October Kit of the Month. This months' kit, Creative Christmas includes the The Story of Christmas 6x6 pad by Echo Park. I love the pretty reds and greens in traditional Christmas colors, with touches of woodgrain papers along with whimsical snowmen and reindeer too! Along with this months stamps, it's the perfect set to make Christmas cards and even some of those after Christmas thank you notes.

For my card, I used a mix of different patterns, I started with a base of green cardstock (10x5) that I folded in half, then comes the layer of the candy cane stripe paper ( (4.75x4.75) I topped that off with the red dashed paper (4.5x4.5)

To finish the layers, I  topped off it off with a strip of woodgrain paper (1x4.5)

Next I stamped the darling Christmas village scene from the Home for the Holidays stamp set on to white cardstock (1.74x4) using Rich Cocoa ink, and addding the moon separately with yellow ink. I rounded the top two corners, and then added two rows of the white scalloped ribbon. The ribbon has a velvety texture to it, and with the scalloped edge, it reminded me of snow!

I then layered the stamped village on top of the woodgrain strip, using 1/4" foam tape to give it a bit of dimension, and also added some snowflakes that I fussy cut from the woodgrain snowflake paper, using foam tape on them too.

Thanks so much for stopping by The Rubber Cafe' blog today, be sure to stop by tomorrow for more ideas and inspiration!
