Firstly - a very Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends out there - I hope the spirit of gratitude and thankfulness fills your hearts & homes!
I am hosting this weeks challenge over at Winter Wonderland and I have chosen the theme 'Shape Up' - to create a shaped card (anything but square/rectangle). It's so easy to stick with the square/rectangle cards yet there are so many wonderful opportunities out there to create with different shapes. I hope you're able to join us and show your creativity!
I have created this Christmas Tree shaped card - I've had this template in my folder for years now and honestly cannot remember from whence it came! But I love the shape it creates and I decided to decorate this one up like a tree with branches and ornaments. I ran the cardstock through a snowflake embossing folder too to add some extra detail. The snowflake is a Marianne die (a purchase from my recent trip to the UK) and the ornaments are part of a stamp set from CTMH (Close to my Heart). I punched the MS branch punch on some glittered paper for lots of sparkle. I'm also going to add this to the Totally Papercrafts challenge this week which is 'Untraditional Christmas' (no red or green).
The challenge is sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp so get creating and submit your project so you're in with a chance to win a $15 gift certificate!
I have the kids home from school today on a snow day so we've voted in a pjama day (yay!!). I plan on relaxing and hopefully doing some blog commenting and catch up.
Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to visit to leave a comment. It is very much appreciated as always!
