3CT40 - 'Tis The Season



It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....but in a "Non-Traditional" way.
Welcome to this weeks 3CT Challenge - Create a Christmas themed project with NO
Red or Green. Sounds pretty simple right?....Not so much when every single piece of Christmas DP that I went through seemed to have red or green in it somewhere. Then I hit upon this piece of Heidi Grace paper sitting in my drawer that I bought last year and had yet to use. I love this color combo together and it's certainly not traditional at all.
I chose to use Snowboard Fluffles (Stampendous) for my focal stamp. I colored Fluffles using Prisma Color Pencils and added a touch of shimmer to the snow with a Silver Spica Glitter pen and a fuzzy ball to his/her (does anyone know what sex Fluffles is?) hat. It started out White but I dyed it with a Night of Navy ink pad as I didn't have the re-inker. I embossed some Creamy Caramel cs with the Snowflake Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and brushed it over a Craft White ink pad then added a strip of ribbon (American Crafts) don the middle. Next up I added the sentiment (computer generated using Lucinda Handwriting font)and added the snowflake brad covered with Frosted Lace stickles to complete my card.
