MCT 12 Day's of Christmas Day 6!!


Good morning! Welcome to Day 6 of MCT's 12 Days of Christmas! Eekkk we are getting closer to Christmas Day! I can just feel my blood pressure rising as I type! I have ZERO gifts bought! Excuse me as I wipe the sweat off the computer screen because I'm definitely sweating!!! It's this way EVER year, I should be use to it by now but NOPE still makes me a nervous wreck! We have to wait on my hubby's Christmas bonus to do our shopping so it's usually comes down to shopping till we drop a few days before Christmas! But that's ok...it always works out in the end!

Today, I'd like to share a super quick and easy card I made! I was so inspired by Liz's project on Day 3! I didn't use the chalkboard technique but I did emboss white on black! I used It's A Magical Season for the snowman and the sentiment! The little snowflakes are from a marvy punch that I found hiding in my stash hee hee!! I also used a border punch by Fiskars for the tree border underneath. I used some of my plaid ribbon from my stash (I just LOVE this ribbon and it's "just" about gone sniff, sniff) I embossed the black background paper with the snowflake cuttlebug folder. See told ya!! Super quick and easy! 


See ya back here tomorrow with Day 7's project!! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne

Your embossing turned out great. I almost thought it was on forest green, but read black. Bet it really stands out in person. Love the trees too! Hang in there...try not to let the holidays stress you, you're right, it will work itself out. :-) TFS your project today. --C

Your card is so elegant looking with the black and white theme...I always love the look of white embossing on dark card. The tree border and flakes are perfect additions along with your plaid bow. Great job!

I recognized the inspiration immediately! The white on black is definitely non-traditional for Christmas. I love the added pop of red in the ribbon and the embossed background!
