We Wish You {Scrapy Land Challenge #47}

Can you believe it's already August!?!  It's also the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge.  The theme for the first Wednesday of each month is always Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

Today I have a CAS Christmas card to share with you.  Here are the dies I used to create this card:

Sue Wilson Designs: Spanish Collection: Granada
Memory Box: We Wish You Elegant Script

Start out by heat embossing some Golden Sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle onto a scrap piece of cardstock (make sure it's larger than the Memory Box die).  Then die cut the new Holiday 2016 die and set aside.

Next, take a piece of darker cardstock and die cut the Sue Wilson die.  Dry emboss with a Sue Wilson embossing folder (Climbing Vines).  Adhere this panel to your card base and then adhere your sentiment on top.

I added Nuvo Crystal Drops (Bright Gold) to the four corners and also used it for the dots above the "i" on "wish" and "Christmas".  (This is much easier than trying to locate and adhere those really small circles that were originally die cut. :-).)

As I said, a very CAS and very easy card to create and make duplicates of.  Easy to mail as well.  :-)

Now it's your turn to join us for the Scrapy Land Challenge #47.  You'll have until Aug 14th to upload your creations.  The winner, chosen by the design team, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.  Be sure to visit the Scrapy Land Challenge blog to see what the rest of the team has created for you this time around.  I know you won't be disappointed.
