C4C109-The Holiday Season is heating up!


Helloooooo! This week at Crazy 4 Challenges (#109) their  design team has a challenge featuring Outlines Rubber Stamps and they invited the Outlines Design Team to join in too!

Their challenge this week is  to heat up the upcoming season with heat embossing! Since we have lots of great "seasons" coming up, you are pretty much wide open to create something fun!


I chose to feature this great Bo Bunny designer paper. When I first saw this paper, I could not imagine what I would do with ole Santa Baby, but I think he managed to fit onto this card with ease! I embossed with silver embossing powder and set off the sentiment and Santa paper with some brushed silver paper from Stampin Up...love that stuff.  I added a Cherry Cobbler seam binding bow for the finishing touch. 

This really is a fast and easy creation! I forget how embossing can "fancy up" a card in no time flat!


This Outlines Rubber Stamp Holly Strip is very versatile and I think pretty classy all done up in silver embossing!


I hope you can take a few minutes and pop over to check out all the creations made by the talented C4Challenge  Design Team.

Have a great weekend!

I am always looking for mass-produceable (if that's not a word, it is now!) Christmas cards and this one is high on my list of ideas for this year! Very well done and such a great way to show off that Santa paper and the border stamp. Great job - thanks for the inspiration!
