Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

I'm so excited to share my card with you today. Since we are at the end of the typical Christmas card making "season", I wanted to share something that is not only quick and easy to make - great for those last minute ones - but can also be used for several other occasions.

I paired our previously released Be Merry Sentiments set with our new Feathers & Florals stamp set. I used two of the images from Feathers & Florals and stamped them in a circle, radiating out from a center point, and then alternated heat embossing them in silver and gold.

For this card I chose to add the "sending love" sentiment on a die cut circle, but you could swap out the sentiment for any of the many included in Be Merry Sentiments or even the new Bold Banner Greetings stamp set.

I just love the sparkle and shine of the metallic embossing powders against that crisp white.

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...you guessed it! Wplus9! So you’ll definitely want to win!
