12/1/19 Top 3 at Color It Create It Show It Off!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday and Happy November 1st! Can you believe it?! This year is just a blur, lol! Our November challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #127 – Anything Goes! We are being sponsored this month by DRS Designs so come on over and play for a chance to win a prize! I played with Seashell Christmas Tree and created a Christmas card in non-traditional colors to add to my stack of cards to be mailed out on December 1st! It sure is coming fast!


After coloring the image with Prismacolor pencils and adding touches of gold to all the seashells, I trimmed the image to fit inside a gold metallic stitched rectangle die cut. I added white foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card base. I cut the ‘merry’ sentiment from the gold metallic cardstock and adhered it at an angle over the tree.


I stamped a beach-themed sentiment on the inside panel and embellished it with a leftover strip of the gold metallic cardstock used on the front along with a strip of pink cardstock. I then layered the panel on the pink cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card base.


Here’s one more look… I’m so pleased with how this turned out and I hope the recipient likes it as much as I do! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
