Make Your Own Background

Good Sunday morning, everyone!!

My Sundays are reserved for Christmas Card Challenges on my blog, and this 10th week is all about making your own background.

A lot of the other Design Team members did beautiful embossing. But since I have yet to own one of those embossing/ die-cutting machines, I decided to play with some ink to make some clouds/ sky.


I used some Tim Holtz distress ink and a cloud stencil that I cut myself. Learned the technique from Amy, but I couldn't find the exact link.

I used another stamp from the SCRS Karber Fairy Set. The papers and snowflakes are from Bo Bunny. I hand-wrote the sentiment. The ribbons and bling are from my stash.

I hope you can play with us this week! Just think of all the Holiday cards you'd have made come December!!! One less thing to stress about, am I right?! :)

Please visit the Christmas Card Challenges blog for more details and to see the other DT's fab cards!

And if you're watching the SuperBowl, have a great time! I'm not really rooting for any team as the Niners didn't make it. But I'll be peeking in on the game and eating lots of chips and dip.... maybe craft at the same time too! Woot woot!!
