Today is the last day of Holiday Chaos over at Catch the Bug. And I have to say I am definitely Christmas carded out for now. That's not to say that you won't see anymore Christmas cards on my blog this year. I have a couple progressive challenges to work on yet but beyond those I don't think I'm going to make to many more Christmas card this year. This is the first year in all the years I've been making cards that I have more Christmas cards then I will send. I'll have some ready for next year! The last day of Holiday Chaos is Bingo.
I started out doing the first column and then realized I was going to have more than three layers. So I switched to the middle row across (embossing/mittens/snowflakes). My embossed background is the snowflake embossing folder. The Bugaboo image is Marshmallow Snowman - candy cane. Minimal coloring on this image with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Desert Divas. The mittens are from a Simon Says Stamp Set called Big Holiday Wishes (no longer available). I connected them with some Doodlebug twine. and anchored it with a punched snowflake. And because I can't make a holiday card without Stickles I added Crystal Stickles in several places. My favorite is the snow caps on the "winter" sentiment. Looks really great with the glitter.
I am entering these challenges:
- Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos: day 7 bingo
- Through the Craft Room Door: anything goes
- Simon Says Wednesday: ice inspiration
- Cards in Envy: sweet (marshmallow snowman and candy cane)
- Creative Knockouts: snow much fun
- Penny's Paper-Crafty: anything goes
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Our weekend will be busy watching the twins. I think we have them for 7 hours both Saturday and Sunday. So lots of snuggling and cuddling going on. Take care and have a wonderful weekend!
