SMC: Christmas in June?????




Sponsor this week:
THE CUTTING CAFE -- OWNER -- REGINA EASTER
URL -- http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com
Prize Package -- Any 3 sets of winners choice

We are suppose to have a Christmas project with a CD to show you today. You would think with my husband a computer tech/administrator I'd be able to have a dozen old CDs but since knowing about this project, there hasn't been a need to discard any. I was browsing Scrapbooks Etc. website the other day and ran across this http://www.scrapbooksetc.com/crafts/cards/birthday-cards-for-adults/?page=5. I thought, "There's my Christmas CD idea."







































I used the following sketches for my front and back CD holder. I can put Christmas music, or photos for family on the CD and give it.













To make the front of my CD holder, I used a Cuttlebug folder for the red snowflakes, a Heidi Swapp sticker ribbon, and the striped paper came from Die Cuts With a View. I colored Morty with my Prisma and Specia glitter markers. The corner holly stamp is a wood mounted stamp by Boyds and I colored it with RoseArt watercolor markers. I also used the same red marker to make the stitch lines around Morty and in the corner.

For the back, I used some of the same stripped DCWV paper and some K&Co. scrap pack paper. The pearls are acrylic disks covered with Adirondack Pearl ink and glued on with Matte Accents.

Thanks for looking. Be sure to check out what everyone else came up with and enter your creation into the challenge blog.
