Handmade Red And Green Christmas Card

Hello friends,

So yesterday, I found burlap while shopping for my craft supplies and I thought I'll buy it since I've always wanted to use it! So, when I made this card, I thought- why not use it? The best part is that I could fit it into the required conditions for the latest challenge that I'm taking part in. I saw this August Sketch challenge going on at 52 CHRISTMAS CARD THROWDOWN  and I decided to play along as I liked the given sketch for this challenge. 

On the card stock, I have pasted pieces of green burlap and red card stock. Then, I painted candy canes and a wreath (my favorite part), cut the painted Christmas elements into their shapes, made a fence out of plain white paper and stuck the wreath on to it. I also tied a matching green-white twine on the candy canes and finally added the sentiment which is handwritten. I love the red green color combo. 

Here it is, my card for this Christmas-themed challenge, doesn't it make you want to sing a Christmas carol?

And here's the sketch for inspiration!

"Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Tis' the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la".

Enjoy your day! ^_^
