A Christmas landscape …

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Today at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, you can choose from any challenge from 2016.  I decided to make my card following the June’s theme challenge as I missed it the first time round.  I had fun putting together this modern take on a Christmas landscape …

I used scraps and snippets of card and paper from my stash for the trees, and punched snowflakes from whisper white card, then covered them with blue glitter.

The sentiment is from the Endless Wishes stamp set by Stampin’ Up.

I was really pleased how the card turned out – I hope you like it.  The Design Team has created lots of lovely cards to inspire you.  We’ll be announcing our new Design Team members soon too, so do pop by the challenge.

Glittery Christmas pines, boughs & berries …

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Can you believe that it will be December next week?! Wow! I’m so glad that I’ve built a handy stash of Christmas cards with the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. I was always leaving things to last minute and ending up having to buy my cards, and felt guilty to boot!  But joining the fabulous ladies at the 52 Christmas Card Challenge means I have my cards all ready and waiting to go. 

Over on the blog today, for my last challenge this month, I have a stash challenge for you – I want you to get out your glitter!  Any type of glitter will do – from glitter paper, to stickles, to that stuff you sprinkle that gets all over your hands and face – wear your glitter with pride!

I edged an oval die cut with silver glass glitter…

Dabs of glitter glue were added to parts of the very vanilla embossed boughs & berries background.  It didn’t quite sparkle enough for me, so I added dazzling diamonds too – much better!

The bow is white glitter ribbon and I added more dazzling diamonds to the pretty pines die cuts, giving a pretty, frosted look.

I hope you like my card for this week. The Design Team has created lots of lovely cards to inspire you, so do pop over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog to take a look. I’m wearing my badge that says “yes, I know I have glitter on my face” – it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
