August 2020 Week 3 Theme of Under the Sea Christmas for 52 CCT Blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Another week when my artsy crafty heart and supplies were having anxiety over what to do! Our DT hostess for August at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog is really challenging the creativity!! But apparently the other DT members have more diverse supplies than I do. I did a scrounge and found some "Treasure Map Word Stickers" from October Afternoon that got me on track for a simple card to fit the theme. Not my best work but with all the Covid stuff, I'm limiting shopping trips to essential food and household needs.

Let's see what you can do! Get your creative mojo going and participate in #31 for 2020!!!

Best Fishes, Santa! Christmas card =

Make sure to look at the other DT cards which addressed the theme much better than I did. Our August hostess wants to 'see' under the sea CREATURES celebrating Christmas...

Some design notes about making this card:

a. October Afternoon's Treasure Map Word Stickers = rope border type sticker, the anchor and anchors away message

b. Webster Pages' Seaside Retreat image and phrase stickers = sea horses, shells, and fish

c. My Mind's Eye = pale teal blue with white dot cardstock that I've used twice

d. Darice = teal flat/one layer card base (small 4" x 5.5") that has matching envelope

e. lettering stencils, silver glitter paint pen, teal marker, tape/glue runner

f. kraft paper is just in the background to block the light while the computer printer scans....

g. the layout is based on the 52 CCT blog's August 2020 Week 1 sketch:

Note: you don't have to use the sketch layout with the theme

  1. A great interpretation of the theme Becca - not an easy one at all~!
    Stay safe

  2. un challenge difficile pour moi aussi Becca cette semaine, sortir de sa zone de confort fait parfois du bien, tu as su trouver des ressources pour relever ce défi, biz

  3. you combined 2 in one! great work! sometimes I struggle with a challenge and the end result is not what I wanted but as long as you have fun who cares! I think your card, based on the sketch was perfect and whoever gets the humor on Best Fishes Santa...will love it too.

  4. Hi, Becca. Sketches are not really my thing, but this time I immediately had an idea. Yours is very original - and we know that fish celebrate Christmas too ;) Hugs, Rosi
