A Nordic Christmas and jingle bells …

Hi and welcome to my blog. It’s colour challenge week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, where we would like you to use red, green with silver or gold…

52cct-November-colour-week 2

I chose a red and green patterned background paper from the Nordic Christmas paper pad, which was a gift from my best friend, Debs.  It has a wonderful fabric texture to it – so pretty in real life…


The paper is so lush I didn’t want to hide any of it, so simply added ribbon and a greetings tag, also from the same paper pad …


For the silver element of the challenge, I attached two silver jingle bells to the ribbon with silver elastic thread, tied in a bow, and added a punched silver snowflake, popped up on dimensionals, to the tag.

So, that’s my card for this week – no stamping, just some background paper and embellishments – I hope you like it. 


The rest of the Design Team at 52CCT have some wonderful creations to inspire you, so do please pop by to look and join in our challenge. Have a wonderful week.
