Tuesday Throwdown Team B

Ours sponsor is Meljens Designs and they have the sweetest whimsical designs
for us to use this week. Since I have need of Christmas cards I have used all four
of the designs. Our CHALLENGE is What Christmas means to you.First and
formost for me its celebrating the birth of our Savior.

For the first card I used the Pretty Pointsettia image, printing it twice, cutting it out and foam dotting onto the base, which was cut with a Spellbinder Scalloped Circle. The little dots were Stickled with red for a little sparkle. The punched edgings are made with a MS punch. The sentiment was punched out with SU punches.

The Second card uses Star Snowman. I had a piece of blue that was printed with lots of swirls and
snowflakes but they dont show much.In person the light blue is a nice match. Two of the snowflakes
 are MS and the lacey one was a gift from Cheryl a former teamie and I dont know who makes it. I think it must be one from the UK. The star is a Spellbinder folded for a little dimension. The sentiments
were computer generated.

The Third uses
Cheery Lights, which
 I colored and cut
out with a
Spellbinder floral
oval. Next I  added
Stickles on all the
snowy areas for
 some added
sparkle. The
dotted dp had a
bit of red shading
here and there
 but I decided to
use the gold as a
 backing and red
 ribbon for the
 accent. I used
some Tim Holtz
 ink to distress all
 the edges on the
creme base and
on the sentiment.
The stars were
cut with a PTI
 border die.

The Fourth uses Marshmallow Snowman, I printed this one three times in graduated sizes and colored. Although it doesnt show I used raised paint to make little snowflakes plus added two sizes of the punch outs. It does look cute in person. Some fun non traditional dps and stitching to make the layers and a MS punch for the bottom edging backed with the aqua so the punch outs would show. The little red tab was made by stamping on red then cutting out with a Spellbinder oval.
