2022 Feb 4 #27 MTTCC blog DT card CAS Christmas Theme

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I'm thrilled to be back on the My Time To Craft Christmas blog design team! And that is not all!!! ....

OK! Lots going on today in blog world for me and for MTTC and MTTCC. The owner of these 2 challenge blogs, Shell, is taking a crafting and blogging break and has agreed for me to be her temporary manager. I want the Christmas challenge blog to return/keep its 2 week competition format. I think it's important to have variety even with the length of challenge time periods for those that are Christmas/winter holiday greeting cards. The February 4, 2022 theme for #27 is CAS Christmas. CAS is clean and simple. 

Here's my Happy Holidays Snowflakes card:

My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog #27 posting link=

design notes=

1. white A2 card base

2. navy blue cardstock cut about 1/4" larger than the stamped panel; tilted a bit to add visual interest for the CAS theme

3. light blue cardstock was stenciled/stamped with navy blue inked stamp pad, then black, and then finally gold as top/final ink; snowflakes stencil from Simple Stories (about 6" square for stencil so the panel was measured and cut from within that)

4. ribbon, gems, foam snowflake, and the die-cut sentiment (a very old stash item)

5. wintery colors, snowflakes, and happy holidays are elements for keeping this a Christmas card with a Clean and simple format theme


other challenge blogs and/or Facebook groups where I will share this card=

b. The Four Seasons Challenge blog; February/winter season; 

I wasn't able to copy and paste their inspiration mood board image so if you want use the link posted next to take you there; I liked the wintery blues and grays and then accented my card with the white ribbon to add that snowy white contrast to all the blues
