http://joy-purttypaperz.blogspot.com/2010/08/santas-slackers1st-card-challenge.html and I felt we needed some motivation to get started and actually complete some xmas cards this year!! Now I am the great procrastinator of all times and never quite get done with all that I want to do around the holiday! So we are going to start with one xmas card a week (more if possible) from the same sketch and see what we come up with. This card was to be a 5.25 in square and we were suppose to use Winter Woodland's cuts of some kind to start us off!! If any would like to play along let us know in a comment we would love to have others join in!!! This is just for fun and inspiration to keep the stress and pressure of holiday cards down to a bear minimum!!!!
Let's see the recipe is:
base: 51/8 inch square and another at 5"
the smaller square is a 3 1/2 in + 3 1/4" + 3" square
I used the tag cut from the Poinsetta cut on page 40 cut at 15/8 and 1 1/2
Cuddlebugged the lighter shade with swiss dots as well as the background of the 3" square
seasons greetings pg 63 was cut at 15/8 then tweeked a little to make it fit in square
the poinsettia's are from making memories I picked up at Tuesday Mornings and I used these jars of glue beads for the centers
Inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Fired Brick)
and Pop Dotted with layers of foam tape for dimension
Well Joy we are on our way and I know you got yours done first!!!! You even got a second one done!!!
Let one of us know if you want to join in!!!!
