Cathy sent out a Christmas kit this month. It contained an amazing mix of designer papers, stamped images and sentiments along with die cuts and so many extra goodies. It was happy mail indeed!
First up is the elegant tree Cathy stamped. It was whispering in my ear "Glitter me, glitter me"!! I added it to a card base covered in this beautiful Christmas plaid. A small snippet of ribbon and a few gems on the sentiment banner were all this needed.
Wouldn't that sparkly tree look fabulous with these ornaments adorning it's branches!! I wanted to let as much of this DP show as possible. I cut the back mat and DP with my fave ME frames. I simply added the premade sentiment/ornament Cathy sent. I sanded the edges to let more white show so it would pop off of the DP.
Cathy die cut this deer from the plaid paper. I posed him on the sentiment she sent then added a few Pretty Pink Posh snowflakes and sequins. I love the litte edge of snowflake paper peeking out!
Isn't this leaping deer pretty! He's gracefully leaping through a wooden sentiment frame backed with more DP. I added this to a PTI tag I had in my stash. It was already embossed with the stars so I added a couple of more wooden stars (also from my stash) to unify the design.
Finally, I have a cozy card! The polka dot paper was die cut with a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 Die. I added it to the card base covered in paper that reminded me of a warm cozy sweater! Cathy sent a kraft panel that she embossed. I cut just one strip from it for this card. Next, I die cut one of her sentiments with a PPP Stitched Tag. A little rustic twine added to the wooden holly she included finish off this one.
I had a grand time working with this month's kit. Thank you so much Cathy and the ladies of the 12 Kits for having me!! I always enjoy seeing what you all design from the same products. No two alike and all simply fabulous!!
I'll be back tomorrow with a special birthday hop post for Paper Sweeties!! I hope you'll join me ~Lisa
