CCEE Plays Tic-Tac-Toe



For this first week of December, the CCEE Stampers have been given a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge by our hostess, Lynn.

 We were to choose any row we would like across, down, or diagonally in the board above and were to include those three things on a holiday card. You could add more items, if you wish, but you must use the three in the row you have chosen!

I went with the middle vertical row of snow, embossing, and glitter......except I substituted bling for glitter.  I DO NOT USE GLITTER.  I have enough troubles with my weak peepers without having little bits of shiny things making them worse.


I used a new 'frame' die cut from Simon Says Stamp.  The only issue I had was that the tiny pieces of the R and theA disappeared in the scraps and I had to find them and carefully place them where they belonged.  I think in the future I am going to make it easy on myself and leave the areas blank.  Everyone will know what it says without that fine detail work.

Other than than, this was an easy-peasy card.  I back the die with first designer paper and then plain red cardstock.  Place all of that on a snowflake embossed base card.

Can't wait to see what the rest of the CCEE team comes up with using the Tic-Tac-Toe. Check it out with me at the CCEE Blog.

That frame is FABULOUS, Joanne! So perfect with these gorgeous snowflakes!

Great design on this one, Joanne! I love the Merry Christmas paper behind that big snowflake in your frame. Glad I wasn't the only one who cheated on the "glitter" part of that column!

Works for me, especially in RED and white!

Very classy in the red and white. And, quite apart from the eyes (sometimes I find my eyes a bit itchy and irritable and often I realise I'd used loose glitter), you save an awful lot of clean up!! And Stickles or bling are just as effective and sparkly.

Love the alteration of gemstones for glitter. I would rather use them too. Love this pretty red and white card and so perfectly designed.
