Christmas in July...err, August!

I've been meaning to participate in Isha's Challenge over at Do More for Less where we're making a project based on packaging as well as using a masking/distressing technique. I have so much packaging saved for this challenge but it looks like I only have time for the one card for now.

This was packaging from way back in Christmas but I guess we just never finished these crackers -_-



And this is what I created!


 Inside the card...


 The trees are made from DIY washi tape and the tree stumps are actual washi tape. I'm also happy to say that I used my only winter sentiment stamp hoarded from 2 years ago (came free with my only copy of the Paper Crafts magazine).

I'm also finally participating in the challenge over at Friday Mashup (Christmas in July). I've been following this blog for awhile now and I really like it. There's two topics or techniques but also an option to mash it up the two topics together-brilliant!

Happy August Everyone! :)

AWESOME inspired card from the Christmas Christie cookie packaging! Your creativity has no bounds! I love the shading of the background and it sure looks like a beautiful (hate to use that S word) SNOW scene!I am glad that you get to play this challenge! Isha did such a great tutorial, didn't she!? Enjoy the rest of your summer--it's part of a teacher's job ;)
