it's Challenge time again over at
This week, we're challenging you to create a Christmas project without using any Christmas stamps.
Without the option to use stamps, I decided to go for Christmas die cutting and used my Simon says stamp Merry Christmas word die. It's so intricate, I scolded myself for the idea all the way.
Then I colored one of the "Christmases" red with an alcohol marker and also the edge of the mat I had cut for my main panel. I die cut the large Simon says stamp snowflake from white and craft cardstock, but it was just too big for what I had in mind. I really wished I had ordered one of the smaller ones as well. But then I had an idea and I cut off a bit of all the longer arms of the snowflake, in a way that wasn't so obvious. Now they had the perfect size (see picture).

At last I assembled it all and adhered another white on white die cut onto the envelope.
I do hope you'll all join in and have a lot of fun
