Celebrate the Occasion #22
Good morning all! How's your week going so far? It's actually a little overcast and cool here today, so unusual for July in Redding, but we're going to pay for it next week. I hear it's going to be back in the 100's. Oh well, I'll take what I can get when I can get it!! lol Well, I played in my room yesterday and made this card for the challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion. The challenge was to create something for Christmas, and if it's a card it would have to be a shaped card. Sooooo, I pulled out my Gypsy and created this present from the Christmas Cheer cartridge. I really struggled with it when it was time to put it together, then when I showed DD #2, her comment was "whhhaaattt is that???" lol When I told her she giggled and said it looked like something from Whoville!! lol Figures, $30,000 worth of a college education and all she sees is Dr. Seuss!!! lol (don't tell her, but I thought the same thing after she said it!!! ;) ) For the record, I wouldn't use this image to make a card again, not sturdy enough, unless I tried to weld it on the box maybe. I worked with it so long I that I was going to make sure it worked, I wasn't going to give up!! lol Next time I'll be sure and choose something with a wider section for welding. Learning curve!!!!
So here's my recipe:
The Paper Company cardstock
Pattern paper from a XMAS stack from Walmart
Present image from Christmas Cheer
Tag image from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More
Scrappy Mom's Stamps sentiment stamp
Stampin' Up and Colorbox chalk inks
Martha Stewart Baker's Twine
Sakura White Gelly Roll pen for doodling
Well, hope you like my card, and as always, thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your week!
