Where Creativity Meets C9 - Challenge #15 - Christmas

Hey there, crafty friends! Are you ready for the next Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge? I know I am and I'm so excited about this months theme, CHRISTMAS ... the most wonderful time of the year! 

I  don't currently have any of the newer Concord & 9th Christmas sets so I had to think a little outside of the box for my card today. I mixed two different sets together, O Christmas Tree and Pineapple Perfection to create this festive card. 

I started with my white card base and used one of the polka images in the Pineapple Perfection set to create my background. The dots were stamped in black, leaving the center white for my sentiment. I chose the Merry Christmas sentiment from O Christmas Tree and stamped that in red, right in the center. 

For the floral wreath around my sentiment, I stamped and die cut the flower images in the Pineapple Perfection set. I used aqua, red and yellow for my Christmas-y color combination. I began adhering the flowers, attaching some with dimensional foam and then tucked a few die cut leaves in there as well. To finish it off, I added clear sequins to a few of the flower centers. 

Are you ready to get your Christmas on? We sure hope you are and look forward to having you join us in this months challenge. You have until November 29th to link your project and enter for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Concord & 9th.

Happy creating!
