Pootles Design Team Challenge, Week 3, Brightly Lit Christmas

I was very happy to be chosen to take part in the 'October 2017 Pootles Design Team Challenge'. The team have to design four projects using stamps from the Brightly Lit Christmas stamp set, one for every week of the month. Last week I showed you a Christmas card using the street lamp complete with a banner and some fun in the form of a naive snowman. This week has been challenging. I had what I thought was a really clever design planned in my head. I tried several times to pull it together but it wasn't to be. It happens! So I decided to stop trying to be clever and to go simple and this card is so incredibly simple, my six-year-old grandson would be able to make something along these lines for his friends without any real help at all.



I used the Christmas Lamp Post Thinlits Dies to cut gift boxes and a bow, plus a very useful Christmas tag which would be used in several ways. I also used Large Number Framlit Dies to cut the year out of silver card which I laid over Real Red card. I decorated the boxes with metallic pens just to add a bit more of a gleam.

Thank you for reading my blog! I hope that you will come back and see the other projects that I have come up with using this stamp set and it would make my day if you would subscribe to my blog too!

Have a creative day!

Love, Linda x
