Saturday scrapping: Noel

Just took part in a Christmas swap where we were supposed to make Christmas themed ATCs (artist trading cards, if you're wondering), and we were supposed to use the traditional colour scheme of red, green and gold.  I didn't have much time to prepare all 17 pieces, so I kept it simple, and roped in my trusty helper to crank the handle of the big shot:

He loved turning the handle!

... and that same helper also helped to peel out all the cut out shapes:

Then there was a lot of assembling of parts:

... and cutting and stamping:

... then all the stuff was packed and good to go!

And here's the finished product.  Big red blooms (I was trying to make poinsettias, since they are supposed to remind us of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, but I guess they don't look so much like the real ones) and hearts.  For a season where we are reminded of God's love and sacrifice.  

And here are some of the ATCs that the other ladies did:

I'm always amazed at everyone's creativity whenever I receive the swap pieces!  Here's all of them together:
