13 May 2022 MTTCC #34 Theme of Sled and or Sleigh Christmas cards

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's been very excited this winter and spring to be able to carve out time for card-making! This post the cards must have a sled and/or sleigh and be Christmas/winter holiday appropriate (because it is a Christmas blog!). Imagine my surprise for Card #1 to combine a sled with reusing/upcycling a commercial card scene that shows a family in a sleigh with children playing in the snow on the left and a comfy beautiful home on the right. 

These cards are for the design team inspiration projects shared on the May 13, 2022 posting at My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog (MTTCC). It's time to show the theme #34 of sled and/or sleigh

Christmas Night Sleigh Ride card=

A small bit of white glitter cardstock was used to accent the top right corner. The upcycled card panel was trimmed down just enough to keep most of the wonderful artwork of Terry Redlin. I kept his name and the sentiment on so that allowed me to add the sled accent (upcycled gift tag) and the clear crystal gems as the only embellishments. Pretty easy to make. Card base (top folded dark red) has a matching envelope were purchased at The Paper Source website. 

I thought it was a fun idea to add the sled tag accent because there are 2 children playing ice hockey and another lacing skates on as well as dog painted in the scene on the left. With all that snow-covered landscape, surely someone has been using a sled as well as taking rides in the sleigh!

DT project #2= We wish you a merry Christmas--sledding card!

Oh, my snowflakes! Is "Stickopatomus" still around making stickers? Those 2 large icy silver snowflakes are mega years old. So is the text and snowman with gift sled die-cuts. These were part of a scrapbooking kit that I bought on a vacation trip in 2010 or 2011. Crazy!! Even more crazy is the frosty french blue with white diamond print cardstock!!! --It's another recycled/upcycled resourceful move on my part! It's a side flap from a pop-up style tissue box!!! --YES!!! Behind that is mirror foil that the scanner light on my printer has captured bounced light/color waves. 


DT project #3= Oh, what fun at Christmas time! card

The white scalloped flat card base comes in a set with envelopes by The Paper Studio. I forget the vendor for the snowmen washi tape. A set of winter themes were given to me either 2 or 3 years ago. The bright blue with snowflake decorative tape was also used on card #2. Scraps of a snowflake stationery sheet and constellation night sky cardstock add more blues. The 2 kids on the sled image is a sticker freebie sent by a children's subscription magazine.
