Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #19 (06-01-09)

Hi Friends!! It's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge time again and this time Sankari of Sankari's Sunshine Corner will be hosting the challenge!! Sankari, along with Vicki and Debbie will be hosting a challenge each month. Whoohoo! Sankari is very talented and it'll be fun to see what awesome challenge she'll come up with each month. Click Here for Sankari's challenge. It's a fun one!! Hope you'll play along this week!!

Okay. . just a bit of info on my card. I didn't have a number stamp which the challenge is about so I decided to print the number off on transparency film and color in the number with my Stampin Up marker. I then applied embossing powder and heat embossed the number.
I then attached the transparency film on to a white card stock that was embossed. That's about it.

Hey. . .I wanted to tell you a little bit about the transparency film. On Saturday we decided to check out a few garage sales and this lady was selling two boxes of transparency film for a dollar each. OMG! Do you know how much these films cost at regular price? They run about 40 to 60 dollars. I totally scored big time!! LOL!

Anyway. . .be sure to stop by the Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge site and play along. It's June. . .just 6 more months and it'll be Christmas. You better start creating your cards now or you'll be suffering during the holidays!! This is a no stress way to be on top of your Christmas card creations!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Card Details:
Papers: Basic Grey designer paper, SU Old Olive, Real Red
Ink: SU markers, Sakura gel pen

You're still up??? Oh my! Love this Christmas card and how clever of you to print the "25" on transparency then attach it to the embossed circle. You can really think outside of the box to get something done and that's what I just love about you. You help us improvise via your experiences! This is a beautiful card and I love that big bow you have on the top! Wonderful, as always, Maria! Get some rest now? Hugs, Cami

So pretty! Seriously, I need to start thinking of my Christmas cards now since I gotta mass produce them! What a daunting task! Maybe if I start on them now it won't be so bad... I'm so glad you're doing these weekly challenges! I get inspired every week! Thanks for that!

Hope it's nice and sunny over there!
