Say it with...Christmas Scene Baubles
So today the Annabelle Challenge is:
Say It With Christmas Scene Baubles.
This is a wonderful holiday set. I've never heard of the globes being referred to as "baubles" as I've always called them "ornaments" but whatever you call them they make awesome cards. Today however I chose not to use the globes but rather one of the little scenes in the set and the words.
I saw this adorable card in a magazine and decided I could do something similar with my Annabelle Stamps and this is the result.
I started with a card base of Garden Green (now retired SU). Then I used an SU background stamp, Wood grain) and stamped it with Close To Cocoa (sadly another retired SU color) on Crumb Cake card stock. Next I stamped the trees with Garden Green ink on a separate piece of Crumb Cake cs forming a little forest. Added some snow using, White Liquid Applique. I added sparkle to the trees with some glitter.
Then I added strips of Cherry Cobbler cs. I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink before mounting my focal piece with foam dimensional tape. Lastly I added some small Chili Sprinkles to complete my card. It's really a simple and easy card but I like how it turned out. Great for those "last minute" cards.
Now you can try this challenge yourself using this set or if you don't have it I'm sure another Christmas Bauble set would also work. We hope though you like this set enough to order one for yourself or someone else as a gift perhaps. As always there is a prize up for grabs ($20 Gift Voucher) at the end of the month for anyone entering any of the monthly challenges.
For those wondering my blog header is actually a picture of our house and my mom's next door. We put the lights up on Saturday in a snow storm, spent 5 hours at it. I know CRAZY but hey, it's pretty and festive don't you think. Snow melted on Tuesday and yesterday during a rain storm but arrived again today. Getting good use out of our new Studded Snow Tires!
