Celebrate the Season!!

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's my turn to post on the My Craft Spot blog and I have a Christmas project with you today using several of my favorite MCS products.



I had so much fun putting this card together :) I won a giveaway from my sweet blog friend Patti of Cherish Each Precious Day for a copy of CardMaker Magazine's Interactive Cards book. There were so many creative folds and I chose this one to try first. The papers are from The Paper Studio. In the center of the card, I used MCS Tiny Doilies dies and popped them up with foam tape for dimension. The butterflies are from the Small Alphabet set. They were covered with sugar coating. The banner is a Ribbon Banners Wavy die. Merry Christmas is from the Naughty or Nice stamp set.


Here comes the fun part...when you pull the tag, hidden sentiments are revealed!! I couldn't even begin to tell you the steps it took to create this card...there were some sketchy times when I wasn't sure it was going to work at all ;)  Vintage Vanilla Crinkle Ribbon and Cherry Red Twine were used for the tag. Celebrate the Season is from Tiny Tags Christmas. May The True Spirit of Christmas sentiment is from Joy Filled Christmas.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. DL.Art - December Linky
3. Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday  

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great Thursday :)

Oh my goodness - how gorgeous is this?! That fold is amazing, I've never seen this before and I just love it. The big, bold polka dot paper is fabulous and I love the touch of burlap. Beautiful sentiments and embellishments are just the icing on the cake (or in this case...card)! This is a beauty my friend - have a wonderful day!

Hi, Lisa! What a clever card and I love the secret sentiment! Just looking at it, I can't figure out how you did it! Looks very complicated but well worth your efforts! Gorgeous card and I love the sparkle too!

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, this is simply incredible! (Or not so simply, right?!) Interactive cards are innately fabulous and when Christmas-inspired, it's sure to be brilliant. I love all three sentiments you chose and am so tickled about how they are revealed! :o) Along with the technical happiness, you've used such gorgeous papers and trims. (I really want that music paper! Gorgeous!) I love the tiny doily dies and the sweet fluttery friends atop it. This will be cherished, my dearest Lisa! Stunning creation. :o) I hope you have a sunshiny day filled with love and joy.

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
