5 August 2022 MTTCC #40 Theme of Winter Holiday Decorations for Christmas cards

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My creative heart always gets excited to craft Christmas cards! And this #40 theme for MTTCC was no exception! Winter Holiday Decorations-yes! The team has already had some specific holiday item themes like candles/lanterns, wreaths, stockings, snow globes, and trees for 2022. Now participants can choose whichever ones they want to show. YEA!

Competition starts August 5 and ends August 18, 2022. 

Card #1: Inside or Outside Christmas Wreath and Ornament card=

design notes and vendors: plaid and tree/deer print cardstocks, wreath and ornament die-cut ephemera and the little label "Peace on Earth" are from Pink Paislee's Together for Christmas collection; barn siding cardstock is from Lake Life paper pad by Fancy Pants Designs; dark red 5" x 7" folded card and matching envelope are from Paper Source website; gems, snowflake stickers and glitter decorative tapes, inks, and kraft brown paper are stash items

*a different look but using scraps is a very good thing! and I like the ornament hanging inside the center of the wreath! 

Card #2: Inside or Outside Joy Wreath Sign with Tree and Gift Box card=

design notes and vendors: What a contrast this one is! Visually the color palette is soothing yet refreshing for the Christmas holidays! White folded base card with matching envelope are A2 size; gray with white Xs print cardstock is from the Mint Berry paper pad by The Paper Studio (this paper pad is my 2022 goal to bash; I've still have 35 sheets to go that are 4.5" x 6.5"); the tonal blue check print cardstock is from the Lake Life paper pad from Fancy Pants Designs; the different silver metallic foil snowflake dazzles are from Paper Wishes website; die-cuts are upcycled gift tags!!! YES!
