ABC Christmas Challenge - 'L' - Things Beginning with L



It's time for another fun challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge! This time we are all about things beginning with the letter L. It could be lime green, laughter, lists, lollipops - anything Christmas-y with letter L is good to go. So fun to stretch and try to think of something new!

To main Blog

We have another fun sponsor with this round, also. One lucky winner will receive 3 images of his/her choice from the fabulous Etsy shop:

For my "L" card, I'm featuring a Lamppost spreading Light in a snowy background. :) This is SO fun but I can't take credit for the idea! At least one of the MFT DT made a card like this when the die was released (I think Barbara Anders) and I fell in love with it. I've been meaning to use my die for a similar design and just now getting around to it!
I sponged my background with Distress Inks Salty Ocean and Fossilized Amber. I die cut 6 of the lampposts from scrap black cardstock and glued them together before adhering to the colored panel. The stitched snow drifts are also MFT and cut from PTI Soft Stone cardstock. I glued them to my panel and cut with the MFT Double Stitched Rectangle Die-namics. I stamped the sentiment from PS Christmas Sampler and masked it off before adding light weight spackle (poor girl's embossing paste) over the SSS Falling Snow stencil. I double matted using Pure Poppy and black cardstocks before placing on my Vintage White card base and securing a red twine (Recollections) bow to finish it off.
Please hop on over and join in the fun! We'd love to see what you create using this challenge letter. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Please come back again soon!
God Bless,
