12/15/20 Top 5 at QKR Stampede!
12/31/20 Honorable Mention Winner at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!

Good morning, my friends! Can’t believe it’s the first of December already! Where has this year gone?! Our new challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #140 – Winter Wonderland! I created a shaped Christmas card in one of my favorite color combos of burgundy and aqua, using a pretty Power Poppy digital image.


I created the card base from burgundy cardstock and the layer from aqua using dies from a card die set. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, cut it with a stitched oval die and adhered it over several strips of Washi Tape. I cut the winter sentiment from red glitter paper and adhered it to the bottom right of the panel.


I printed the image two more times to fussy cut four extra mittens, and used two of them on the front popped up on foam pads for a little dimension.


The Power Poppies digital image included a sentiment which I used on the inside of the card. I embellished the bottom of the panel with Washi Tape and the other two mittens I had fussy cut earlier.


And one more peek… I really love this Christmas card!

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
