Christmas in July (no red) !!! Three Challenges!




Today I have a super fun Christmas card to share with you. This weeks challenge over at both Celebrate the Occasion and The Paper Variety is to create a Christmas in July project! For the challenge at Celebrate the Occasion your project must not have the colour red in it! Boy was this a hard challenge for me, it seemed like every piece of paper I picked up had a bit of red somewhere on it. But after looking through my 1000 and some papers, I found this pretty blue paper from KC and Company I had picked up last year after Christmas for a super cheap price.



For the base of the card I dug out my Wild Card Cartridge and blew the dust off it. It was just one of those cartridges I just had to have when it first came out and then I just never seem to get around to using it. This weeks challenge over at Cricut Cartridge Chaso is to use the Wild Card cartridge which was picked by the followers. Over the weekend I stumbled upon another awesome blog that just happened to be having a blog hop over at Scrapmaster's Paradise. At the end of the hop you can enter your own blue project so I thought this would be fun one to enter also.


So I thought this would work out great .......four challenges for the price of one. I first cut the envelope out and used the fit to page button and it cut at 5 inches. So then I knew my card also had to be 5 inches to fit in the envelope. Earlier this week I had purchased this darling SVG file for the Elf from Precious Piecings and was just dyeing to try it out. After putting the little guy together I placed him on a action wobble. OMG! I just had to laugh...he is just so darn cute! The card still seem to be missing something so I looked through all my stash and found these white pointseta by Making Memories and used some stickles to finish the card it off. I just love this little guy I did a very short video just to show you him in action. Have a great week and thanks for stopping bye!
