Default DEC11VSNF ~ Saturday, Dec 10 ~ 1pm ET~ Christmas Presents

Title: Christmas Presents
Hostess: Ky (scrapacat)
Keyword: DEC11VSNF
Day/Date: Saturday, December 10th
Time: 1:00pm ET

Who doesn't love to get presents? And who doesn't love to give them? A beautiful tree all piled up with beautifully wrapped presents, the lights that twinkle, and children's giggles are wonderful to me. Add to that a snowy winterland outside the window... heaven! I know many of you celebrate in many different ways around the globe. Just adapt this challenge to your personal viewpoint - everyone is welcome!

My challenge for you is to incorporate packaging or wrapping paper in your project. You could use distressed, torn cardboard, or beautiful foiled paper. Try some old-style wrapping paper like Sunday comics - get creative and have fun! Don't forget the pretty ribbon and bows!

My samples show you cardboard and acetate from packaging. I love both options! The acetate was colored with alcohol inks, and provides the warm glow in the windows of the snowy home. Stripped cardboard gives a warm, outdoorsy feel for flowers. Mix it up!

Here are a few techniques you can check out - they are strictly optional for this challenge!

Cracked glass (perfect for those frosty windows!)

Crinkled Cardstock (get that awesome, ripped-open look from your wrapping paper, just like Christmas morning!)

Dazzling Diamond Dust (great for the perfect wintery feel to your card!)

Remember that you can't combine VSN challenges in order to be eligible for the Sparkly Silver and White Snowflake Ornament!


VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING/CHALLENGE INSTRUCTIONS:
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON MONDAY, December 12th.

2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.

3. Please remember to put the correct keyword, DEC11VSNF, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this thread to be sure your card is seen.

Thanks, ladies! It was 8 degrees here this morning. I really needed Lee's cozy mountain home with snow, so that's what I made!

Wow! Your samples are awesome! Looks like a lot of fun techniques to try. So, we do one of the techniques on wrapping paper?

Great question, Sharon. The techniques are there just to get your muse warmed up. You can use them, or not - purely optional!

Go on, Lee... rub it in. Tee hee!

Our snow is almost gone. I'm ready for more but we have a clear, but cold, week ahead. I'm sure yours is piled nice and high! What, 18 inches and counting?

Well we had 24" with all the storms last week...we probably have a good 8" still around and of course up the back of the property it's still piled higher. We are supposed to be in mid-40's this week so we may see more meltage. We need more snowstorms!

Here is mine. I didn't do anything special to the wrapping, because I liked the words that were on it, and didn't want to cover them up! So, I think that stopped my creativenessS! So, I don't think this is what you had in mind, but it is what I came up with. Thank you for the challenge and all the research you did with the techniques. I will try one of those in the future.

This might have been a bit easier if I had at least one straight edge on my paper to start with

I did a three-fer on wrapping products -- giftwrap paper, twine and raffia. Here's my card.

What a fab idea this was to use wrapping paper. this one did take me longer than 45 minutes - I'll admit to that as my wrapping paper was such a pain to trim straight. I had only a bit left on the roll and as it was near the end it was very curly and would not lay straight at all! But after all the fighting with it, I totally love how it came out!

I just finished wrapping and mailing the presents, but I purposely saved a scrap of paper for this challenge. Now to figure out what to do with it...
