Challenge #53 - Non Stamped Card!

Happy Friday to you! Today I get to share another creation for CSAYL. Now here's the funny part - CSAYL stands for Christmas STAMPIN All Year Long BUT the challenge this week is to create a card WITHOUT STAMPING!! This was good for me though. I got to take a break on stamping and I used some embellishments that have been in my stash for quite awhile.


I'm TOTALLY LOVING THIS CARD!!! I'm a HUGE snowman freak...collect any and all so this little embellishment had to come home with me. Poor thing has been in a bin ever since. I LOVE BoBunny Paper...it's definitely one of my top favs. Right up there with Doodlebug, KI and BasicGrey!

You combine all those wonderful things along with a FABULOUS sketch from Taylored Expression #116 and you have this little beauty! I used a Quickutz die for the snowflakes along with white cardstock which I sponged with VersaMagic Turquoise Gem. Then I added a little Crystal Stickles to them. LOVE how they turned out - the centers are dew drops. The sentiment is a rub-on and the snowflake/lamp post is a sticker.

So see it is possible to create a CA-UTE card without stamping...Don't worry though I won't be giving up my stamping anytime soon! It's too much fun and I have WAY too many stamps :) Are you up for this weeks challenge? Why not join us and play along. Just visit the CSAYL Blog to link your creation up - you may even win a guest DT spot!!
