Last year I was on the HLS ATC team, this year I was accepted to the Design Team of the Christmas chalenge blog. I love making Christmas cards. So I was very happy to be able to design with the team.
As you see the challenge is Anything Goes if it's Christmas we want to see it!! Now there is an option to use Jingle Bells on your project which is what I went with,
My favourite backdrop for my summer photos is the breakwall at the cottage, the day I dook the picture it was bright but overcast and so so so much cooler, crafting in 30 degree (40 with humidex) is reall not easy, cardstock warps, the glue doesn't want to dry there is a lot more waiting time between layers.
I decided to go "rogue" with non traditional Christmas clours because the new Tuesday Morning Sketch really called to me and the only washi tape I had was a 5 roll package that was turquoise. It is different to be crafting at the lake if it isn't brought with me there is no going anywhere for it.
My image is Fluffles from Stampendous layere on turquoise and teal layers, the background is a music ef that I had with me and seemed to go along witht the sentiment.
Just couldn't resist a close up of the kitties and you can see the embossing folder and the washi tape is really turqoise and glittery.
Finished the inside (a tad crooked) with a stamp positioner so I could ink it up 3 times with memento black ink on turquoise layered on the leftover of cutting a circle out of the teal layer.
I am entering this in:
