Gotta say the Jingle Belles have come up with another great challenge: It Came Upon a Midnight... Clear. (How ever do they think of such creative names?)
Nothing says clear on a card to me like a shaker card. And, when I saw the current Sketch Saturday sketch, I knew the top portion was perfect for a shaker element.
I included this Santa-themed paper in my travel stash... just in case. When the top part of the sketch screamed "HO HO HO" to me, I knew I had the perfect paper for that diagonal strip.
I'm still not sold on the twine... because I'm a little concerned that it's not strong enough for the dp. However, I don't have a die to cut these two trapezoidal elements. (Sorry... sometimes the former math teacher in me just sneaks out.) So, I had to cut the window element by hand, and it wasn't as clean of a cut as I would've liked. (There's that math teacher thing again.) So, I added the border twine to create cleaner lines.
All in all, I think it's a pretty fun card that an SAS4Kids tween/teen might enjoy receiving. :)
Words 2 Craft By. Our challenge is open to all Celebration cards/projects through March 1.
Have a great week! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
