Lawn Fawn + May Arts Week! - Day 2

 Hey there, everyone!  This week Lawn Fawn has paired up with May Arts to bring you a week of eye candy and prizes!! 

Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog, and the May Arts blog for their giveaway posts!!  There will be lots of yummy ribbon and stamps to be won...so head on over (after checking out my post...tee hee!).Plus- they have a super cute pom-pom tutorial on the May Arts blog today...I can't wait to try it out!

I created a Christmas card for my project today....and it is a Christmas card meant for someone special!!  I love that by mixing Lawn Fawn stamps you can create the perfect, custom Christmas sentiment for everyone on your list!!  Here is what I created (all challenges are listed at the end of the post):
"Kiss Me, It's Christmas!" supplies: 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (kraft, vintage cream)
Paper: Webster's Pages (Botanical Christmas 6x6 pack)
Ink: Clearsnap (Dye: chocolate)
Pearls: Want 2 Scrap
Jewels: Darice Inc.
Bells: Michael's brand
Colored Pencils: Heidi Swapp
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock, then round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a slightly smaller green paper block, and adhere.  Cut a strip of kraft cardstock, round the corners and adhere.  Wrap pleated ribbon around the top.  Thread green ribbon through crocheted trim, and wrap around the middle of the pleated ribbon.  Stamp the mistletoe to cream cardstock, color it and cut out.  Accent with red pearls and adhere to the front.  Tie a bow from matching green ribbon, adhere to the front, and accent with red bells.  Stamp the sentiment below the cut out mistletoe, then stamp the holly to cream cardstock.  Color it in, cut out and accent with red jewels.  Adhere it below the sentiment to finish.

My partner in crime today is Latisha Yoast, so be sure to head on over to her blog and check out what she created as well!  It is sure to be a treat!!  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day today! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
