Softly falling snow …

Hello and welcome to my blog. I’m the hostess this month at Christmas Card Throwdown and for my first challenge, I have a sketch for you to follow.  My card was a nightmare to photograph being glittery paper on white – super difficult to capture a good image but it’s really beautiful in real life…

Lots of texture with the embossing folder, and the glitter card is so beautiful…

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 Christmas Card Throwdown to take a look.

Wood texture Christmas card with pretty pines …

Hello and welcome to my blog. For the new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown, we want you to use wood or canvas on your project.  I used wood texture dsp, a balsa wood top note die cut, teamed with die cuts made with the pretty pines thinlits by Stampin’ Up! to make my card…

I stamped the sentiment in early espresso ink which toned beautifully with the dsp…

The pines were diecut from scraps of green cardstock, and I added shading with my stampin’ write marker pens. 

I cut some of the die cuts in whisper white glimmer paper and added red stickles for the berries. 

I hope you like my card for this week.  The ladies on the Design Team have created lots of inspiration for you, so why not hop on over to Christmas Card Throwdown
