Monday Challenge #119 - Christmas Shape Cards!!

I love Thanksgiving weekend . . . visiting with family and, of course, all of the delicious food!  I am not much of a Black Friday shopper . . . well, maybe online. :)  My favorite thing to do the day after Thanksgiving is to set out all of the Christmas decorations.  We even have some new decorations to add to all of our old favorites this year!  So excited!

Are you ready for another fun challenge?!

This week's challenge: Christmas Shape Cards

Now it's time to sit back and enjoy these fun projects from my awesome design team!!:

Marlene's gingerbread house is gorgeous! I love the snowy roof and gumdrops!

The jingle bells are so cute on her tag and I love the touch of lace!  Marlene cut her tag from the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped it with a sentiment from the Mistletoe Stamp Set.  She added Scarlet Red Crinkle Ribbon, Ivory Jute String, and Green Apple Twine.

Her inside sentiment is from the Joy to the World Stamp Set.


Heather made such a fun shape card! I love how the banner sentiment becomes the focus!  This one would be easy to mass produce.

Heather used the Straight Ribbon Banners metal dies and the Christmas Banner Sentiments stamp set for her sentiment.  She finished it off with Natural Jute Twine and Cherry Red Traditional Twine.

GiGi's snowman is adorable!! What a cute face and I love his hat! Her inking and pen work are fabulous! 

Her sweet tag was cut from the Jar Basics Metal Dies and her sentiment is from the Mistletoe stamp set.


Wow! Gwen's tree is amazing! I love all of the layers and her cute garland! Such a fun card!

Her cute tag was cut from the Jar Basics Metal Dies and stamped with a sentiment from the Mistletoe stamp set.

Gwen attached her tag with Green Jute String.  Her inside sentiment is from the Ornate Labels-Christmas and the Joy Filled Christmas stamp sets.


Sherrie's penguin is adorable! I love that cute face! 

The button makes a fun addition to her bow!

Sherrie used the Ribbon Banners Metal Die-Straight and the Christmas Banner Sentiments stamp set to create her sentiment banner.


 Robin's card is absolutely beautiful!  I love her subtle, but gorgeous inking!

The burlap behind her sentiment is so pretty!  This sentiment is from the Joy Filled Christmas stamp set.

Robin added a star from the Merry Christmas stamp set to her main sentiment (from the Joy to the World stamp set).  Beautiful card!
