Non-Traditional Christmas Card

I got this cute Christmas card in a swap at a Close To My Heart corporate event today.  It was SO fun to hang out with 100 very talented women who love scrapbooking, stamping and Close To My Heart!  

Designed by Diane Seitz

I would never have thought to use the Party Animal stamp set in a holiday card.  The boy (?) reminds me of one of the who's in Whoville (Dr. Seuss).  

The Honey colored paper is a different, but nice.  What looks like a piece of patterned paper on the left is actually randomly stamped images from the Christmas Melodies stamp set.  See!  You don't need to use patterned paper on your projects - you can make patterned paper with the stamps you already own!  Plus, you can make a whole sheet of it and just cut it up, like you would the patterned paper you bought.  (I'm all about saving time!)
