CCAYR – Anything but a Card

First weekend of September !  Wow…fall is almost here and then ..dare I say it…winter…**sigh**

I am not looking forward to winter in Calgary (I never am), but I do love creating winter crafts!

This month’s challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year Round, is to create something other than a card.  What are you in the mood for….tag, gift bag, scrapbook page, traveller’s notebook, maybe a treat holder.

For me, it’s an ATC.  It’s been awhile since I made one so I thought it would be fun!

I took some Christmas music paper and added it to the base of the ATC.  Then did a wash with some gesso and added some color with my distress crayons.  Next was a layer of Heidi Swap texture paste through my Carta Bella stencil and then when it was dry, I added a sentiment strip from my stash as well as a glitter snowflake and some enamel dots to finish it off.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog!

Have an awesome weekend!

 

CCAYR- A Wintery Thanks

Here we are! Our first challenge of 2018 on the Christmas Cards All Year Round blog!  Our theme is THANKS!  In keeping with our challenge, it has to have a Christmasy/winter theme to it.

I had fun creating this card – I used some left over pieces from a card kit that I got from Scrapshotz.  The die cut deer I received in a swap and I love it!  I added some glittered accents in red for a pop of color.  Also, the thanks is from Stampin -up I believe. A few little gems to finish it off.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and play along with us! We can’t wait to see what you create!
