Christmas Kickstart Challenge #48


If you're a challenge seeker like myself you already know Jo Avery, a fellow team mate of mine over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  In addition to being a Sistah she also hosts the Let's Squash It challenge as well as the Christmas Kickstarter challenge.  Busy lady!  

Jo has kindly invited the Sisterhood to join her in the latter challenge where the prompt this month is Green Christmas.

I ditched the snark and went with a simple yet elegant design.  

I started off by clear heat embossing a holiday script background onto a panel of green cardstock. I overlaid the white die cut panel, added a stacked Merry sentiment and a white heat embossed sub-sentiment and finished it off with sprinkling of gold foil pearls.  I think there's a lot of bang for my buck with this simple design.  (It could be a contender for this year's holiday assembly line...just sayin'.)  

Go gather some green and come play along with us this month!

Poppystamps - holly overlay die (not sure of the name)
MFT - Christmas words background stamp
Simon Says Stamp/CZ Design - Merry die
Hero Arts - Merry Stamp & Cut (sub sentiment)
Spellbinders - gold foil pearls

Continue to stay safe and healthy my friends.   


Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.
