holiday hugs

Hello, my crafty friends! Well, we have less than a week to go before the chubby man in the red suit visits! Have you been naughty or nice?! Our newest challenge at Let's Craft and Create began on the 5th, and I'm excited to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #120 - Christmas/New Year! Come on over and play with us!

I created a fun step card using the SweetStamps 'Winter Treats Snowman' digi which I think is absolutely adorable! I pulled out some fun papers and a few dies from my stash and went to town, lol! Fun was had by all!

I sorted through my stash of Christmas embellishments and chose a few to use on this card. I stamped the sentiment on a hand-cut flag and held it there with a tiny festive red clothespin.

Here's an angled shot. This is one of my favorite fun folds - they are so easy to cut and fold, and then embellishing them is so much fun!

Proud to enter this fun step card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Dark Chocolate and Cherry Red cardstock, Marco's White Antique Linen cardstock, Stampin' Up! Trim The Tree DSP, The Paper Cut White Gold cardstock
  • Stamps: SweetStamps Winter Treats Snowman digital image, Paper Smooches Holiday Cheer stamp set
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- IG1, EB5, TN7, TN8, CR10, PP1, IB1, IB2, IB3, GT2, GT3, BT7, BT9, DR1, DR3; Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers die, Cheery Lynn Italian Flourish, Spellbinders Icicles
  • Accessories: Recollections White Flocking, clear Wink of Stella, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Numbered Brad, red organza ribbon scrap, Queen & Co. Pave gemstones, YNS green Glittered Gumdrops

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and are inspired to play in our Christmas/New Year challenge this time! I'd love to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by - we'll see you next time! ;)
Scrappy hugs,
