CSAYL - Week 16

If you weren’t sure, CSAYL is the acronym for “Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long” and it’s a weekly challenge I’ve been participating in every Monday since January of this year.. I might have missed a couple initially.

This week the guest designer, Vicki of Summerthyme Studio, is hosting our challenge.. and she’s put out the challenge for a lot of bling, bling, and more zing to our bling with glitter, rhinestones, brads, embossing or even tinsel that resembles Christmas lights. Vicki will be hosting our CSAYL challenge on the second Monday of each month… Congrats Vicki! Please stop by often to check out our weekly challenge and… jump in.. the water is fine!

I’m not too much of a bling person, so I did my best. I have had this wreath in my mind for about a year. And since then, I’ve collected every leaf punch and die cut that I could find with the hopes of creating a wreath for the card I had envisioned. I’ve got more of this in mind…. so stay tuned!

My husband liked this card.. it reminded him of the wreath we place on our front door… and coming from him.. 'that’s a good thing’.

Challenge #16-2

Details: McGill Leaf punch (punch green papers about 423 times – just kidding)… I used Sakura Quickie Glue Pen to adhere these tiny pieces… and just layered until I liked the look over the designer paper I chose. ‘Used red rhinestones on hand (source unknown) and ribbon is from Joann’s. The sentiment is from Noteworthy, circa 1994 and I used SU punches with dimensionals to pop it up.
