NEW DT commitment for THICC and #122

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Well, I did a thing. There have been several challenge blogs with design team calls and I've been accepted by Marlene to help out The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenges blog. YEA! Crazy yea! THICC challenges are every 2 weeks with Anything Goes Christmas for its theme. Competition starts August 30 and will go for 13 days. 

Within the past month, I purchased Fancy Pants Designs collection called Cozy Christmas. The majority of card product is from that kit: red & black plaid paper, the Nordic sweater print paper, the mailbox die-cut, and the 2 wood with black buttons. 

Here's the Christmas Mail card= 

The washi tapes are from my stash box. Black marker for outlining. White flat 5" x 7" card base with a matching envelope are from Paper Source. 

A sketch was used for this card and it was tweaked a bit. The sketch was shared by a Facebook group, Christian Card Making Women's Fellowship. 

The Merry Christmas (deer) washi page substitutes for the band going across the middle. The circle space is replaced by the mailbox die-cut. One 3" x 3.5" rectangle was cut instead of having 2 separate pieces and then I used the black and white striped washi tape to frame and separate. 

This fairly flat card will save on postage, however it is not short of style or color and print coordination!
