This week at Celebrate the Occasion, we’re celebrating Christmas. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. And not because of gifts, I love the decorating. If I could put the tree up at the beginning of November, I would. It takes me an entire day to decorate the tree and no one is allowed to help. It’s that serious.
Since I’ve gotten into paper crafting, I find myself getting into stamping a lot more. I still love my Cricuts (We have a new member on the way . . .), but I don’t want everything I make to look the same. One of the requirements for the challenge was that red not be used. So, I challenged myself to make a card that still evoked the spirit of the holiday, but in non-traditional colors.
I wasn’t sure how I felt about the result, but Sara told me that she like it, and since she is always the first person to see my projects, I trust her judgment. She’s like my crafting cheerleader, and I love her to death.
I did use my Expression to cut the scallop and the circle for the stamp. Both of the cuts are from Storybook – one of my go-to cartridges. The stamp is from the TPC Studio Christmas set. This was the very first stamp set I bought last year when I started making cards. Here are the full details:
