Festive Friday: Make a Halftone Card Set

How about another quick & simple card idea?

If you saw my project yesterday – I’m 2 for 2 on quick and simple this week. What? I never do quick and simple. Well, maybe I just needed some instant gratification from all of the more detailed designs I’ve been doing lately (wait until you see tomorrow’s project!). Well, it’s craft month so we just had to use that as a festivity for our latest Festive Friday challenge!

Looking for ideas – here’s a few:

  • CASE one of the DT projects and add your own twist to our designs. Of course, if you blog about it, we would love for you to mention the Designer as your inspiration for your project.
  • This is really an ANYTHING GOES theme since we’re all doing handmade stuff! So, submit anything you like – it fits the challenge!

Here’s my take:

This week’s Party Plan is a video. I do have the supplies listed below.
