Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia + VIDEO by Emily Leiphart

Merry Christmas! It's Emily Leiphart here and I'm thrilled to be one of Taheerah's very special guests for her 2nd annual Advent Calendar Extravaganza! I'm featuring Paper Smooches for this event and all of the details, including how to win one of 25 amazing prizes over 25 days is on my blog. Please leave comments THERE to participate!

My card and video for today features Paper Smooches, which is also today's sponsor! More on that below. I wanted to make a special holiday card for a friend whose twin boys are celebrating their first Christmas. I mirror/reverse stamped and reverse die cut both the baby from Pip Squeaks and the Santa hat from Merry Motifs. See how my card came together here:

The sentiment is a combination of two sentiments, with 'Merry Christmas' from Merry Motifs and 'congrats to your super cute family' from Pip Squeaks. I masked off 'congrats' to create a whole new sentiment. The little hill is the clothesline from Pip Squeaks and the frame was created with the Hot Spots Large Base. I sponged around the card base and the frame with distress inks and embellished with enamel hearts.

It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win! Today’s prize is generously supplied by Paper Smooches so you’ll definitely want to win!
