For this week's assignment we could use any Christmas Set.  I chose to use the O Christmas Tree Background Set and the Christmas Card Fun Set.  From the Christmas Card Fun set I used the Christmas Tree Card.

First I printed the O Christmas Tree Background on a laser printer and then applied red foil over the top.

I loved the "waste" foil, so I used it instead of the printed and taped it behind the open Christmas trees.  I attached a white plain piece over the "waste" foil.

I then printed O Christmas tree from the sentiment set that comes with the cards and applied red foil to it as well.



I finished it off with a red ribbon and a bow.



Snowflake sequins from Hobby Lobby.

Buzzing By - Nov 7th Inspiration

Be sure to visit the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of every month for our design teams inspirational post in which by leaving a comment you will be entered into a drawing to win 3 FREE sets of your choice from the online store. 

For this week's assignment we had a free week, so we could pick any file from the store to use.  I  used the Beehive Shaped Card set and the Hexagon Shaped Card set.    I love free weeks because Regina has SO MANY great files, but it is always so tough to narrow it down to just one or two!!



I used vellum for the wings and gems for the big bee.  The sentiment is foiled in gold with they Minc.

I made a second card with this same Hexagon card base and used a few different layers of pattern paper and solid mats. 


Both cards use the same Hexagon card base, but they look so very different. 

What will you create with it?

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy all the creativity at the Cafe!
