CTO Challenge 34: Any Occasion with Red, Black, and White; I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hello my treasured friends!

Welcome to another Celebrate the Occasion Challenge! Today's challenge is to create a project for any occasion of your choice, but you must include the following colours: red, black, and white. Here is my card for this week's challenge - since Christmas and my craft fair is right around the corner, I thought it would be wise to get started on the Christmas cards!

As you can see, I through green and brown into the mix as well! Just make sure to include the red, black, and white as well!

Here's the sentiment inside the card:

Oh how I yearn for a white Christmas! Last year was the first year in at least five years that we had a white Christmas! I hope the same goes for this year as well!

Trail of Treasures:
  • Card Base - standard A2 sized card, 4.25 x 5.5" cut from Recollections Kraft colour cardstock
  • Card Layer - 4 x 5.25" cut from the Recollections Sugar Plums Holiday Stack
  • House - cut from the Cricut Lite Jolly Holidays Cartridge at 4.75"; added Flower Soft Polar White to the snow, and added a wreath brad to the door, as well as a mini black brad for the door knob
  • Hill - cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge, and used Flower Soft Polar White for the snow
  • Sentiment - used the PBD Christmas Wishes stamp set on an EK Success Punch

I absolutely adore the Jolly Holidays cartridge! It is a must have! Just look at this cute little house with Santa stuck in the chimney, and his footprints on the house! The whole card just came together so nicely! I hope that you all feel inspired this week to join us in the challenge here!

Until next time's treasures,
