Advent Calendar Extravaganza 2017 with Taheerah Atchia

Hello all! We are excited to be participating in Taheerah's Advent Calendar Extravaganza again this year! 

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!

Now for our project! Today we've chosen to use our Magnolia Wreath stamp set and Magnolia Wreath dies! This Magnolia Wreath Bundle of products came out in September. You can create wreaths for all the seasons, and many occasions. We also added in our Plaid Background stamp to make it very festive and Christmasy - and we also have a Plaid problem in that we want to #Plaidallthethings!

For the wreath, we stamped the 2nd layer of the wreath (that is really 1/2 circle) twice to make a full wreath. Adding in the bits of gold on the flower, the berry branches and the thin line stripes in the plaid makes this feel fancy!

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 us at Concord & 9th, so you’ll definitely want to win! Simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to taheerah-atchia.com and leave a comment there too! You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as ours in order to be eligible to win! Don’t forget to grab the other surprise destinations from Taheerah’s blog and head over to them to leave comments there as well to improve your odds even more! You have until 23:59 EST on 31st December 2017 to enter.

Don’t forget Advent Calendar Extravaganza runs from 1st-25th December inclusive so make sure you visit taheerah-atchia.com every day for fabulous inspiration and amazing prizes every single time! Merry Christmas!

This card reminds me of Scotland. I think it’s the tartan paper and the wreath and the green colors. I’m not Scottish but I like it. I love all the talent on this Advent Calendar Hop and I am learning so many new things and seeing so many amazing cards. I wish I had a blog so I could be a part of this hop too. I’m still card making but I don’t have a die cutter so I can’t make a card similar to this one. I do have a wreath stamp so I will try with that.
Thanks for showing us your card and for being a part of this. Thanks also for giving us the chance to win something. I can’t wait to see if I win.

I love how this has a very CAS look despite the fact that we know you made your own plaid patterned paper there in the background! And you’re right, the gold pops on the flower detail and the plaid really up the party quotient on the card. Thanks so much for sharing a great idea and for being so generous and sponsoring a prize for Taheerah! It’s very kind of you, and I appreciate it.
