I could not have been more pleased, honored, or surprised to receive an invitation to Guest Design for the Muse Challenge this week! Thank you so much, Ardyth! Remember, I'm the new kid on the blog. So here I go! Fingers crossed!
I've been working diligently on my Christmas cards already. I couldn't be the only one, right? I make and send between 40-50 each year. I find I get really bored if I make even two of the same. Are you like that?
Going through my stash of holiday papers, I found a few single sheets that I purchased after-season from a darling little paper/scrapbook place 2 hours north of me in Ludington, Michigan. Single sheets work well for me. I especially love those that are double-sided, and heavy like cardstock.
So, with that in mind, if you choose to accept *wink, wink* here is my challenge to you for this week: find a single sheet of designer paper, and create a SET of THREE cards, each different, but sharing a theme!!
I'm working with non-traditional colors for my holiday set, you can use any color you'd like. My theme is die-cuts, and cream - instead of white. Here is one of my sets:
I do hope you like the idea, and have fun with this! I so look forward to seeing what you make!!
Thanks again for inviting me, Ardyth! I love The Muse Card Club and enjoy playing along as often as I can! =]
Supplies: Primitive White CS from MFT and some leftover stars from their Blueprints 18 set; Memory Box Evergreen Landscape die, PTI Holiday Cheer trees die, and Wplus9 - Joy from Seasonal Sentiments dies, and Snowflake trio. Grey polka dot DP is jillibean Soup - 2012!!
And for fun, this is how I was able to take a photo before the sun was up this morning. The red sticks are in a tall vase and they live in that niche all year long. I hang the Christmas cards we receive each year from the branches. =]
