C.R.A.F.T. Challenge--Christmas

Happy Thursday! It's time for another C.R.A.F.T. Challenge and this week we are focusing on Christmas projects. This week, I decided to go with a quick and simple card design and hope that it inspires you as well. Not every card, layout, or project needs to take 55 hours and 7 tons of supplies to complete! Sometimes, simple can be beautiful too! To create this look, you only need a couple of supplies and a short amount of time.

For the background, I used a white cardstock card base....easy peasy. I did add a little black inking around the edges of all of the layers to create unity. Then, I free-handed the letters for the word "Joy" out of white cardstock and covered them with some washi tape strips...super quick, very easy, neat look!  I then stitches around the letters with red embroidery thread and added some adhesive red rhinestones throughout the letters. Easy peasy and quick! Last step....two project life cards a little black cardstock border to complete the look. It looks unique, detailed, and fun while taking very few supplies and a short amount of time. Sometimes...quick and easy is the answer!

I hope you will check out the rest of the Christmas projects created by the design team over at C.R.A.F.T and also try your hand at a Christmas project this week. Make sure to link us up over on the C.R.A.F.T. blog so that we can check out your work and leave you comments as well. Leave a comment below with your favorite quick and easy technique!
