Christmas Card Challenges # 1

Yes, I know ... we are at Week 1 and Christmas isn't even here yet .  But, your cards really should be done for this year and either in the mail or just about ready.  So, over at Christmas Card Challenges, we're already starting on next year's cards.  Yes, no break for the weary.

I went with a very CAS design (for me) because when I saw the Photo Challenge, this card came to mind.

And here's the Challenge information ~ although remember, the only real Challenge is you must make a holiday or Christmas Card (or tag).

See the teeny, tiny black belt on those nails?  Yup, that's where my inspiration came from.  To get the belt buckle, I used a square die for the outer edge, then used a small rectangle die for the two inside rectangles ... I didn't trust my xacto knife skills  since I haven't really "crafted" in over 2 months and this worked.

The word bubble I cut using Cricut eons ago and the stamp came from ?? I think the dollar bin at some hobby/craft store.

Stop by the Christmas Card Challenge and see what the other Design Team Members created this week.  We have several new Teamies (Laurie, Mandy, Rema & Susan), so you will want to check out their cards also.

We also have a Facebook page where we announce the weekly challenges and feature entries throughout the week.  Click here to check it out.
