Merry Christmas

Hello, my friends! Hope you’re having a good week! This month’s ATC Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! The theme for our April ATC Challenge is Make Your Own Background and we’d love to see what you create for our challenge this month!

I created a diagonal stripe background using red and green glitter Washi Tape and gold Skinny Washi Tape. Super easy. No measuring – just free-hand.


I adhered a gold glitter ‘merry’ die cut layered onto a white one, then added the stamped ‘Christmas’ sentiment and a green tree brad to complete the ATC.


And here’s one more look… super happy with how this one turned out! Very festive! ;)

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

  1. Leslie- What a glorious glittery creation! Being a former Sparkle n’ Sprinkle Glitter Groupie, I really do appreciate the glam! Great layout with the strips/sentiment. The tree brad completes the card! Thanks for entering JDS Blog Challenge #ll. Good luck and be safe.

  2. I *love* a bold, graphic background and this one speaks to my heart. Bold stripes and glitter… it doesn’t get any better! You have an amazing eye for spacing too. I read that you just free handed it… amazing! Love!!! Thanks so much for sharing this at Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge!
