December 2011 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I am soooo excited that I am home and able to participate in this months challenge. The challenge this month is to use some type of leftover materials to create a project. And to really challenge yourself even further, try to create a non-holiday card from your leftovers.

So here is what I came up with! My daughter left some of her wrapping paper at our house, and it was perfect. It is a really nostalgic paper printed on kraft paper. I turned it over and used the backside of the kraft paper-perrr--ffect I must say!

Here is the paper-

And here is my card.

I used the wrapping paper to make the die-cut (mat stack 4) papertrey ink shape. I then embossed it with my perfect dots embossing folder (stampin up). I used some left over paper scraps (papertrey ink-text-style Holiday Flourishes & Swirls). I stamped the sentiment and the house with Papertrey stamp set-(Love Lives Here).

What a fun challenge-loved it!

Have a great week and take a peek at all the other ladies great creations here:
