Oh my goodness! It's a beautiful sunny day outside, it's still September, and guess what I was doing this afternoon... yes, making a Christmas card! Okay, this is kinda crazy... but blame it on the cute cut files from the new online store, iDiecut.com. If you haven't gone to check it out, check it out now. There's matching files to go with your Echo Park papers, Copper Top, Lifestyle Crafts and The Creativity Room products.
They have a Facebook contest going on on their page, and all you needed to do was to create a project using at least one of their diecut files. The winner receives a $20 gift card to that store... and I believe it's random. So - I decided to create something :)
As soon as I saw this little reindeer from the Holly Jolly Christmas Echo Park Collection, I fell in LOVE :) Soo cute! I had all sorts of ideas on what to do with this little guy, but since I have to post something by TONIGHT, I didn't have a choice. So - I made a shaped card!
I just wanted to give it my special touch to the "ordinary" shaped cards, so decided to add on some embossing...
glitter... (yes, finally pulled out my Martha Stewart glitter... and I've had it for 2 years now?!?!)
twine.. (this is my favorite part of this project! - I used vibrant colors from The Twinery and wrapped various colors around it!)
and lights. The sentiment is also from the same collection - Holiday Cheer, but just print and cut it.
Anyway, this is a quick post - hope you liked my card!
Come back Saturday to see my spooky Halloween project using My Thoughts Exactly stamps!
