I ended up making two different cards, both using the same two challenges this month for Creative Crew.
I liked my first card enough to try again with another non-Christmas stamp set and this is what I came up with:
Here are the challenge details for both challenges:
CCREW0713CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Catalog Focus: Washi tape! I love the new washi tape on P171 of the catalog. Make a holiday card or gift that shows off washi tape!
CCREW0713HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Holiday Focus: Obviously, it's Christmas! Show your holiday creativity by making a Christmas card using non-Christmas stamps. Use the card sketch on P23 of Celebrando Creatividad.
I'm not as fussed with this one as the last one, but it's okay. I used the photopolymer set Typeset Alphabet that someone very kindly sent me. My teenage son was in the room while I was stamping the letters and suggested I go all modern and social-media-like and use a hashtag in front of the Merry LOL.
Anyway, seeing as I did that, I thought that using the washi tape again would suit the look I was going for. I had to search hard to find a "Christmas" stamp that wasn't too small - wish I could have found a bigger one, but the challenge was to use non-Christmas sets and to me that includes Christmas sentiment sets.
The apothecary accents framelits were used to create the little side pieces to match the sketch.
Thanks for looking.
