Paper Cutz Challenge # 9




Hey everyone,

I can't believe we're already up to Paper Cutz Challenge # 9! Time is flying by and before we know it, Christmas will be here. Now's a good time to get started on all those Christmas cards, before we get too busy with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and all that Christmas shopping.

For this week's challenge, make a card, LO or craft project for Christmas with LOTS of bling! You need to get out all your shiniest paper, glitter, stickles, rhinestones, etc. and enter this challenge! What could be easier and more fun! Just post your name and a link to your entry in Mr Linky by midnight (EST), Thursday, September 24th. A winning name will be drawn at random on Friday, September 25th. The winner will get Martha Stewart Dimensional Gem Stickers!

Here's the very sparkly Christmas card I made for the challenge. I found this shiny, prismatic paper at Walmart and knew it was what I wanted to use on this card. As you turn the paper, you see a rainbow of colors! I used the Cricut Winter Woodland cart to cut the beautiful deer out of the prismatic paper, and also the word "Joy" in white. The deer is mounted on foam tape. The snowflake was cut with my Martha Stewart punch. I used white cs for the 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 card and sponged the edges with pastel blue ink. I cut a mat from the prismatic paper and then layered DCWV pp on that. The silver ribbon is from my stash. What'd 'ya think...is it sparkly enough?

Be sure to put on your sunglasses before you go over to Paper Cutz Challenge HERE and check out all the beautiful creations from the DT this week!

Thanks for stopping by and for all your very nice and much appreciated comments!

Hugs,
Mary
