Once again I am down to the wire with another challenge. This evening I was happily making miniature graduation caps and diplomas when I realized the deadline for the Jingle Belles Rock challenge submission is Wednesday at 6 pm ET. Well, that's tomorrow, and I don't even get HOME until then, which would have meant I'd miss it - can't have that!!!! So I dropped the graduations stuff (actually, I shoved it aside), and started to sweat. You see, this week's challenge is to use a Santa image on your card. Well, anyone who has read this blog for a while knows I don't "do" Christmas. I intensely dislike the commercialism that surrounds the holiday, so when I do make cards, they rarely involve Santa or presents or shopping. Nope, so I was convinced I owned no Santa stamps. None.
Luckily for me, I found one in an SU set *wipes brow* but it was really tiny, and the paper I'd selected (from the Heaplet) was kinda busy, so I thought I'd add a few layers under the image so you could even see it. I went a little crazy and tried to stack as many different die-cut shapes as I could, and this is what came out:
Blue? She used blue?!? Yeah, there are a few blue words on the printed paper, but I managed to cover them up with the blue layer and the ribbon. Go, me.
The striped piece of paper is the strip of the green piece I'd trimmed off - I didn't even know it was two-sided! Cool!
SU peeps: In case you are wondering, No, the new Postage punch does not fit the Santa image. Well, it fits, but it doesn't line up. I sure tried.
By the way, everything on this card was made from the Heaplet - all the die-cuts and even the base is from my remnant box. Yes, I am very proud.
Now I must hit Publish so I can go to bed. It's waaaay past my bedtime!
Thanks for stopping by!
