FCCB # 239 - Beyond Red & Green

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #239 - Beyond Red & Green
Make a Holiday project without using Red & Green

I can't believe it! December 1st already!! I'm not getting myself into a panic this year. I've gotten most of my shopping done - we've cut back and are really trying to focus on what is important. Easier to say than do! I've got a fair amount of Christmas cards done already, and I plan to bake cookies with the girls this week. They love helping, so I'm taking advantage of that and including them in the activities.

For my card this week I 'cased' a card by Lorrie Nunemaker. I've been watching her YouTube videos on the Cricut Explore and I absolutely loved the Christmas one she made! You can click the link above to watch how she made hers. I sponged on blue Distress Inks to create a sky and added glitter to my tree and snowy hills.

I used kraft cardstock for my sentiment and deer, layering the sentiment over a blue cardstock.

Love this doe cut - I used the base cut only to create the silhouette look.

Cricut Cuts:

My Quiet  Book - Tree & snowy hills

I hope you can relax and enjoy all the things you love about Christmas and have a wonderful week! Don't forget to hop over to the FCCB blog to check out what all the other DT members have come up with and enter your own project for a chance to win!
