2013 Christmas Card Challenge - March!

Has March "come in like a lion" where you are?  It has here to a degree.  We've been unfortunate enough the past 2 years to have received very little snow.  It's been VERY cold and it's always windy, so I guess that could be considered  "a lion" in some respects.  Spring in certainly on its way, BUT the Christmas Cards keep rolling on here as I am never far out of the Christmas spirit! :)

This brings us to our March challenge!
Since March tends to be so busy - meetings, conferences, Spring Break, planting; or at least planning for it, etc. We still will have our challenge, but you can make it as simple or as complicated as your time allows.

The challenge for March is:  Your cards must include the colors Red, Green and White ONLY! 
They must contain all 3 colors, but no others - no gold or silver accents, no peeps of pink, etc.  Red, Green, White.

I thought about these for quite awhile - and used lots of details as you can see, but got the lot of 6 done in one evening!!  Here they are:

I had some R,W,G Christmas papers that worked perfectly.  DCWV paper stack of course! :)  The circle Joy stamp comes from Inkadinkadoo (I believe), and the rest of the papers, ink, etc. all come from Stampin' Up.

I used some retired products to make this card, just because they were perfect.  Glorious Green Craft ink (ret.) with clear embossing powder, Red satin ribbon (ret.) and a square of red cardstock to mat the stamped piece.

Above you can see the 6 cards for this month's challenge, and below the completed inside of the card, and the stamped envelope to complete the set.

Come join me and have your Christmas Cards all finished before Thanksgiving, ready to sign and send with time spent only to address the envelopes!

Even if you don't have a blog of your own, there are lots of ways to get your photos uploaded for the challenge.
