Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Today, I'm super excited to be playing along with....



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 over 60 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 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 wait behind the door!


Reverse Confetti is our special sponsor today
and I used their fabulous products in a creative way to make my card.



I started by layering a Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts over a piece
of Fancy Pants patterned paper.
Then, I diecut my deer, using a combination of Branch Out Confetti Cuts
& Layered Snowflake Confetti Cuts in classic kraft & dark chocolate cardstock.
I adhered my deer together (adding a fun FP diecut nose!) and then
adhered it to my tag with dimensional adhesive.



I finished it off by stamping my sentiment, from Jolly Holiday, in scarlet jewel ink.








  


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 Reverse Confetti
