ASM - Holiday ...

.....  Good evening - it's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week the theme is HOLIDAY.  You weren't very keen on the colour challenge, so we decided to switch to Holiday.  We have a sponsor this week - Deedees Digis - and the winner of the challenge will get three digi images.  This is my card for our theme:

Merry Christmas - Photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps:  Deedees Digis - In Season (Snowman); Waltzingmouse - Folk Art Christmas Additions
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pacific Point
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kanban Foil Card; Metallic Cord; Silver Marker Pen; Copics; Glitter

As you can see my holiday theme is Christmas, but it doesn't have to be!!  The holiday theme can include vacation time, Easter, Thanksgiving (this week in the US), New Year, Hanukkah or whatever special holiday you want to celebrate.

I printed three copies of the digital image - one coloured pale blue, one light brown and one white.  I carefully cut out the tree from the brown image and adhered it to the pale blue image.  I cut the deckle edge off the pale blue and layered it onto the white image.  I cut out the snowman and attached him to the blue image, adding some colour to his scarf, ear muff and arms.  I added two types of glitter to the ground and tree.  I cut the mat layer from Kanban foil card and wrapped metallic thread around it.  I attached this layer to the base with dimensional tape.  On the inside I cut a panel of white card, added silver edges and a simple sentiment.

I used the a sketch from Deconstructed Sketches - DS127 for the layout - nice and simple.


Don't forget to check out the inspiration cards from the rest of the team - as always, they are super.  Looking forward to seeing what Holiday cards you make this week.  See you soon.
