She'd like to see your favorite Christmas verse on a card.
Wow - this was indeed a challenge for me! Do I even have a favorite Christmas verse?! Definitely couldn't find a good one among my crafty supplies. Luckily I found a clear stamp set at Michael's with a couple of sweet little poems I liked - on sale too - bonus! I decided to use the "From Home to Home" verse since I had a die with a house on it. From there, my design came together quickly.
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; BoBunny Altitude 6x6
Stamp on It cover weight shimmer vellum
Verse Stamp - Recollections Snow Inspiration
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints 20 (retired) & 13;
Other - Icy Stickles; Foam tape; Stormy Sky Distress Ink
So - funny story about the verse stamp. The quality isn't as good as the US made stamps I usually buy. When I got it out and stamped a test image, some of the lines didn't look even with the rest of them. The word Christmas especially looked wonky. This lead me to do surgery on the stamp, carefully trimming lines away and stamping them separately. Isn't perfect but better than it was as one image!! From a diecut panel I didn't like, I ended up cutting off a house to pop up with foam tape. The sentiment says "from home to home" after all, so I needed two houses :) Decided there was too much open blue space in the half circle so I added two sizes of the mini snowflakes. A sparkly roof on each house - done!!
Thanks for stopping and I hope you'll have a chance to play along with us this week. See all the fabulous creations of the Design Team, plus challenge details HERE. Enjoy!!
