A classy Christmas …

Hi there and welcome.

We’re in November now, meaning it’s just a few short weeks to Christmas, and I’m delighted to be setting the challenges this month over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  The first challenge of the month is always a sketch …

I don’t know about you, but I like to start early with my Christmas preparations, which means a good clean out of every room in the house, including my craft room. In my tidying spree, I found these pretty papers I forgot I had, and decided that they should finally fulfil their purpose and adorn a card …

Putting the patterned papers together was easy, then it was a hard job (for me) to decide on the embellishments!  I auditioned a few different options before deciding on a die cut reindeer in real red card, teamed with small punched hearts in very vanilla.

I hand-stamped a sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas by Stampin Up on very vanilla card, and hand-cut flag ends, before popping up on some fun foam.

There’s lots of pretty glitter embedded in the papers, which gives a sparkly Christmas vibe.  I showed the card to my husband and his first word was “classy” – I was happy with that!

I hope you’ve been inspired to join us over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week – we would love to see what you come up with for this challenge.

Enjoy your weekend
