Paper craft project no. 458: Merry Christmas


We have a brand new challenge at Time Out. For the next couple of weeks, it's the Inspired by Words challenge. Here's the inspiration: “Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.” (Chad Sugg)

I took my cue from "trees" and decided to create a Christmas card for this year instead of a fall-themed card. Something to do with my wanting to play with new toys: the stitched snow hills edge/border dies and the Trendy Christmas trees stamps and coordinating dies. I first stamped one of the fun houses and then stamped the small trees where I wanted to place the stitched snow hills. On scrap cardstock, I stamped a couple of the Christmas trees, colored them with markers, and die-cut them. I layered the stitched snow hills on my card base, popped in the die-cut trees, stamped the sentiment, and the card is done :o)

Check out the cards the team + guest designer Rema made and then link up your own project inspired by the quote. CAS-ual Fridays is our generous sponsor for this challenge. We can't wait to see your creations!
