Itty Bitty Christmas for AYSI 235

Our regular  rotation of challenges continues at As You See It and that make this week 'THEME' week.

The theme this week is 'Sewing or Stitching' which gives lots of scope for you to come up with something interesting.

While I'm a patchworker, quilter and embroiderer, stamps that champion those activities have, strangely, never much appealed to me so there are none in my stash. What I do like though, are dies that have stitched details. Those, I have a BIG stash of.

In this card, I've used an old favourite, Stitched Rectangles for the white panel and the sentiment. I've used my latest acquisition, Stitched Triangles, for the tree forms.

As I was blogging this card, I realised that if I'd used a folder other than Winter Snow for the background, this would have been a great card for a hot Southern Hemisphere Christmas. Next time! 😀

Having said that, the Winter Snow folder is marvellous and the light sponging in Pacific Point really shows off the gorgeous pattern, so I don't really regret using it. 

Perhaps the real star of the show is a product I'd initially overlooked in the 2020 Annual Catalogue and that's the Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I only cut from the blue/green section to make the triangles look like trees. I was keen to do so after seeing some of the wonderful Christmas projects my fellow NZ Demonstrator and former Artisan Design Team member, Angela Meritz-Reid (aka Stamping Beauty) had made.

The sentiment is from my favourite Christmas sentiment set, Itty Bitty Christmas.
