Merry Christmas with Stickers

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Here's my card for Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge. It's also for PaperPlay Challenges which wants you to use tags. I honestly can't believe that I've been making Christmas cards this entire year. I am SO excited to be able to send out handmade cards this year.

As I was looking through my sticker stash, I saw a page from Doodlebug Designs that still haven't been used on a scrapbook page so I thought that I'd do something new for me and use stickers on a card. I put these cardstock sticker tags on a punched circle and then pop dotted them to give some dimension. I love the way it turned out.

Stamps: CTMH So Sweet Seasons
Other: Cuttlebug, Doodlebug stickers, CTMH brads. ribbon from my stash, Fiskars border punch

In other news, I'm totally bummed about yesterday's BYU loss to Florida State in college football. The hopes of a national championship have pretty much gone out the window. Devin loves that I love sports but he also says it's hard because since I am a woman, I bring a lot of emotion to it and that I take it too seriously. I think he might be right but I can't help it.

I hope that you're having a great day. I'm off to church in a bit and then it will be time to watch my Denver Broncos, hopefully win. Until next time, take good care.

I love this card! Those stickers are too cute!

I too love sports, but can't watch around the bf for probably the same reasons you mentioned. LOL

Love your card Alanna. I'm not much into sports (unless using a craft punch counts?) so I won't offer any advice on the emotional thing. Hope your spirits lift soon!

Alanna I'm with you on the sports husband and I LOVE college football. There are only a few tems we root for on college or Pro front. Steelers in pro and on the college front Marshall and Bama "Roll Tide". hehe

Your Christmas cards are so pretty but I love this one as all the dimension like I like to put in a card. Thanks for sharing your fab cards.
