It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

Well, maybe not yet. But, if it were up to my husband, we'd be decking the halls and playing Christmas music already! So, I guess he tends to put me in the Christmas mood a little early. Plus, I have an awesome Pink By Design stamp set to give you a SNEAK PEEK of today, so I just couldn't resist making a couple of holly jolly projects. Here they are:

The first part of my project I want to tell you about is the card. I decided to make a shaped card out of the beautiful Lettering Delights Father Christmas SVG set. The shape of Father Christmas was a little strange for a shape card, so I had to manipulate the image a bit in my design software. The process would be similar with any design software. If you'd like to see a little tutorial of how I did it, click HERE:

Here's the finished 6" x 9" card with the sneak peek at the AWESOME sentiment from an upcoming September Pink By Design release.

I also made a pyramid-shaped gift box from the Lettering Delights Valetine Cone Boxes SVG set, decorated with poinsettias from the LD A Christmas Carol SVG set, and a tag from the LD Basic Tags SVG set. And, of course, I used more wonderful stamps from the upcoming PBD release...the favorite things sentiment and the beautiful nutcracker image.

Well, I hope you like my projects for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh, and don't forget to stop by the Pink By Design Community...I've seen some AMAZING projects there lately, plus, you could try your hand at a challenge or two. :)
