A Bright and Happy Christmas

12/6/19 Top 3 Winner at Alphabet Challenge Blog!
12/31/19 Winner at Your Scrapbook Place!
12/31/19 Site-Wide Winner at The Outlawz Challenges!

Hello, my crafty friends! Woo-hoo, it’s December 1st and not much longer before the jolly round man will be making his appearance! A new challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #128 – Christmas Bingo! Here’s how to play – choose any letter in the word BINGO on our Bingo card below and use at least three of the items in that column on your Christmas project!


We’re being sponsored this month by The Paper Shelter so come on over and play for a chance to win a prize! I created a fun tri-fold Christmas card using the most adorable Are You Ready My Friend digital stamp! I chose the letter B on the Bingo card and used the first four items in that column on my card – red, gold, die cut and green.

Isn’t this image just the cutest?! I cut it with a square die and then layered it on a fancy gold mirror die cut. I added crystal clear sparkle overlay marker to the fur on Santa’s hat and coat, then added Glossy Accents to Rudolph’s nose and set the piece aside. I cut red striped and red dotted panels for the front and layered them on kraft brown bag paper, and adhered them to the card base. I adhered the focal image to the left flap and added red gumdrops and a bow.


I stamped Christmas sentiments on the three inside panels, layered them on red cardstock and then adhered them to the inside of the card base.


And one more look… I’m super happy with how this turned out!

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
