ATSM #83 - Holiday


Hello everyone, I do hope you are well and having a good week so far! 

Time for the start of a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and the theme is HOLIDAY - create a project featuring any holiday you like: this could be Christmas, Easter, New Year, any National Holiday or a holiday (vacation) destination. 

We are so pleased to welcome the very talented Cathy as our Guest Designer this week and our generous sponsor is StampArt Design. Our Top Addict will receive a fab prize of 5 free digis.


For my DT card, I stamped and fussy cut the little holly sprigs and stocking, coloured in with Promarkers and attached them to a rectangle diecut. Stickles glitter glue applied to the hem and toe of the stocking (which can just about be seen on the zoom in). I resisted the urge to place it on a white card blank and used some coloured paper and embossing, hmmmm... 

Please don't forget to check out the fabulous selection of DT inspiration over at the ATSM challenge blog and we look forward to seeing your holiday creations!

I'd like to link this card to Merry Monday - create a Christmas card with Holly on it and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.


Supplies
Stamps - Hobby Art
Rectangle die - WPlus9
Promarkers
Frosted Lace Stickles glitter glue

A gorgeous Christmas card Sue - it must have taken you ages to cut out the Holly and stocking - you have a lot of patience! The beautiful embossing and the touch of red, make a perfect festive background.

Hugs, Sylvia xx

Love the combination of embossing and designer paper, I have quite a bit of chrissy paper lurking in my drawers, great idea to use it up, Cathy x

I would have wanted to put it on white card too so you were brave and it worked out as the DSP with the embossed card makes a great combo x
