The Christmas Card Challenge this week is all about colors and presents:
Last year at a garage sale I found an old Sizzex present die for 50 cents. At the time, I needed it for a different challenge I was working on, and thought I would probably never use it again. But for 50 cents I couldn't go wrong. What a great buy!
When I saw the challenge photo for this week, and I immediately thought of it. I was worried I had gotten rid of it, but luckily there it was in my craft closet. This is why I never want to throw things out! It is also why I have so much schtuff!
I cut the presents out with some gold shimmer paper and red foil paper. It's kind of hard to capture the soft gold shimmer in a photo.
I adhered them onto a Avery Elle wonky rectangle. I added a few branches from Impression Obsession Pine Sprig Clusters, some red sequins,and sparkly gold enamel dots. The sentiment is stamped in black from Taylored Expressions In and Out Christmas.
