Paper craft project no. 292: Merry Christmas CAS card + mixed media Christmas tag

2014-10-30 CAS Merry Christmas

I missed the last couple challenges at Less is More and all week I’ve been wanting to play in the current challenge, Recipe Week #195 – Newsprint. Found 10 minutes to squeeze this card in. I stamped the Christmas bells on gift wrapping paper that has a newsprint design and fussy cut it. I stamped the bells again on scrap cardstock, colored just the ribbon, poinsettia leaves, and berries with Chameleon Color Tones alcohol markers, and then cut out the bells. I paper-pieced this onto the newsprint bells. I stamped the snowflakes in HA soft pool ink before adhering the bells. I also stamped the sentiment along the bottom. I gave the berries some sparkle by applying a bit of crystal stickles on them and the card is done. Clean and simple, and best of all — quick! :o)

I’m entering my card to the following fun challenges: Festive Friday #43 (I was inspired by the bows/ribbons and red in the photo); Addicted to Stamps and More #119 – CAS (entry #2); Aud Sentiments #118 – 2- or 3-Word Sentiment; and Christmas at Sweet Stampin’ – Snowflakes.

Oh, and it’s my turn today to share a spotlight project at the STAMPlorations blog. I created several one layer mixed media Christmas tags and I’m sharing one of those tags. I’ve got a step-by-step photo tutorial here.

And lastly, I’m having a design team call for a new challenge that starts on January 6. If you enjoy making one layer cards and Christmas cards, please check it out here. If you know someone who’d be interested, please pass the info along and thank you in advance! :o)

Thanks for stopping by!
