Isn't that theme title a hoot! That's our Lisa for you. I love her quirky sense of humour. For this Craft Your Passion Challenge, we would like to see you add washi tape to your Christmas creation. Our wonderful sponsor this week is 2 Cute Ink ... one look at their images and you'll see where they got the name. The images have a huge cute factor but not in a syrupy way. They just make me grin... like the one I used on this card does. He's called Reindeer Lights and I love how he's chosen to demonstrate his Christmas spirit. I coloured Reiny with my Prismacolor pencils, added a bit of silver metallic gel pen to the stems of the light bulbs, and cut him out with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals die.
The background starts with a white base and a kraft rectangle adhered to that. The red dotty paper which comes from DCWV's The Christmas Stack was cut to slightly bigger than the scalloped oval. White paint pen stitching was doodled around each layer and the image was popped up on foam tape for added dimension. Two lengths of Christmas washi tape were adhered to white cardstock and fussy cut. By backing the washi tape in white, the pattern becomes more pronounced because the translucent tape can't pick up the kraft colour from behind. Fishtail ends were cut in the ends of the washi tape and they were glued and then stapled to the background with the tiny attacher.
Three sparkly white snowflake buttons were popped up on foam once the shanks were removed and then added to the top left side.
Thanks for joining Reiny (Rudolph's little brother) and me today. We always appreciate that especially when things are so busy with holiday preparations and celebrations. If you get a chance, please pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the fun creations of the rest of our wonderful DT. I'm hoping that you'll join us for the "We Washi You a Merry Christmas" challenge.
