PSA Essentials: Merry Christmas!

Hey y'all...Happy Friday!! :) I'm so glad it's Friday, it seemed like an extra long week!

Okay, so is anyone else starting to get into the whole, holiday mode?...I have to admit, I usually don't get into that mode, until the day of or day after Thanksgiving. However, I'm finding myself ready now! I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing?...Now, I'm not putting up any decorations yet, which is good because I haven't officially lost my mind! lol Though, I am making Christmas cards! But really that's not so bad, is it? :)

So, my card today is one that I made for PSA Essentials. This month we get to post our projects before they're up on the PSA Stamp Camp blog! Still be sure to check out PSA Stamp Camp, there's some great ideas, for what you can do with such cool stamps! :)

So, here's my card!

Merry Christmas! :) I had some fun with this card! I didn't do anything too complex. I started with my pattern paper and distressed it, around the edges. Then for my tree. I took painters tape (something that wouldn't stick to my card, when peeling it off) and made a tree shape out of it. Then stamped on my snowflakes and when I was done, I carefully removed the tape. Once dry, I distressed the edges of my tree and then added some pearls to it. Last but not least, I added foam squares on the back of my tree and then added my little "Merry Christmas" sign, to my card.
