{Avocado Arts} Christmas


Today, the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects using the November release, Very Merry Season. This isn't the first time I used my Cameo but it is the first time I've used the Avocado Arts cut files. Woohoo! I love that the coordinating cut files are going to give even more mileage to these stamps and my designs.


For this card, I used the use the bow, tree, garland and sentiment cut files in combination with stamping. The garlands cut beautifully from glitter cardstock and give that extra oomph to the trees since they are only lightly decorated. To finish, I added some black enamel accents to the bows and tied some black burlap string around the base of the trees before popping on the sentiment with foam tape.


If you'd like to purchase Very Merry Season, just click on the graphics above. Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps! Remember, there's a publication incentive, too. ;) Don't forget to check out the following posts for more inspiration:

This is very pretty, Emily! I love the woodgrain background (looks like birch to me??), and aren't those glittery trees fun?

Awesome! I love everything about this - the birch background, the bows, the twine and the fact that the centre of the "C" on the sentiment is cut out!
