Throwback Thursday Challenge

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. :) I was able to get a card done for Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge. Yay! The rules for the challenge are to use a Retired Cartridge of your choice and make a project with it. I love this challenge! I have so many retired cartridges that I never seem to use anymore so this was the perfect opportunity to dust them off and play. :)

I decided to get a jump on my Christmas cards for this year and when I noticed that Christmas Cheer was on the list of retired carts, it worked out perfectly! Here is my card:

It normally takes me a few times designing my Christmas cards before I find one that I like enough to send out to family and friends but I really like how this one turned out, so this may be the one! For my card, I used Christmas Cheer and cut out the Santa suit at 2.5" You can't see it very well in the picture but, there is white flocking on all the white pieces of his suit. I used a stamp from My Creative Time's Inspiring Words (Accents) set. They go perfectly together don't you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation! I really appreciate it. I hope you have a great crafty day!
