Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hi there and happy December! I'm so excited to be part of Taheerah Atchia's Advent Calendar Extravaganza again this year. This event is such a holiday highlight in the cardmaking community!


Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This 'hop with a twist' was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you'll never know where you're going to be visiting next until you 'open the door'!

And that's not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!



My project features my current favorite Reverse Confetti stamp set: Cool Friend. I adore those snowmen!



I created a pretty little scalloped and stitched window for my snowmen pair using one of the dies in the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts set. The patterned papers are both from Reverse Confetti's colorful Cheerful & Kind 6x6 Paper Pad.  For accents, I added some silver metallic twine and some Snowflake Trio die-cuts topped with jumbo sequins. In the background, for a touch of added interest, I adhered a white Rounded Stripe Panel Confetti Cuts to the top third of the card.



The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Sentimental Christmas. Isn't that font fabulous?!

Snow men are so cute.

Annalisa Young said...

I think it goes without saying that the snowmen are adorable, but I'm especially taken with how you did your background. I'll have to look into that patterned paper pack, but I think the most striking thing was the contrast between the smooth bottom and the simple texture on the top. I'm really bad at backgrounds, so I really appreciate people who do them well and in interesting ways. Thanks so much for sharing!
