Cracker for a Challenge

Cracker for a challenge? Oh my – I just made myself laugh at loud hysterically! That title….too funny.

Now, let’s get to typing. I made these Christmas crackers for two reasons. First, they were my Team Meeting swaps, nice, huh? And, secondly, I loved this color combination (once I got it correct!!).

The color combination comes from – you guessed it – a challenge. This is from Create with Connie & Mary, again. Only this time, its color! CCMC274, Raspberry Ripple, Soft Sky, and Very Vanilla.

Initially, I had my Pool Party and Soft Sky scraps switched in my scrap drawers. That is now fixed! Whew. And, I was able to correctly complete all 10 of these beauties! Gah!

I just love how they turned out. I couldn’t stop taking photos of these. Anyways. I made ten treats. My current ribbon supply these days is about nil, I thought they looked just fine without ribbon.

I am such a detail oriented person. Notice the little design on my stamped image? Looks very similar to the little design on the paper, doesn’t it? Cool, huh? The pearl is just the right touch here.

Get this, these are Christmas Crackers, right? I didn’t even use Christmas DSP. I used Birthday Basics DSP! These look like Christmas to me!

By the way, yes, these are very easy to make. And, they are made with the Envelope Punch Board!!! How great is that? Yet another use for the EPB!

I will have a tutorial up on how to make these in a few days. Stay tuned.

Happy Stampin’
