I absolutely love the color combo from Embellish Holiday Color Challenge (see here). It reminds me of the colors in a land of holliday candy, for some reason! I didn't know what sort of "project" that I will make. Just a few days after I saw the challenge, I had to throw away the empty cracker box to the recycle bin, BINGO! There's my project! I used the bottom half of the box and recycled it!
I took out my Two Houses stamps and stamped the houses in Espresso, pink and green for the trees. I also colored part of the tree dots in red. I colored the houses with minimum Prisma color pencils. I think leaving some white space is a good idea!
I stamped last year's Christmas tree set (also from Hero Arts) for the background. A little masking and coloring, gluing, taping...
For the handle, I trimmed a long piece of card stock and used the Fiskar paper punch for the borders and added the green ribbons on top. Then I added the brads for the swivel handle.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm gearing up for the week 3 cookie and card series on Wednesday! It's going to be a yummy post :)
