Lora Bailora Christmas trees

Hello and welcome.

I have the honour of setting the challenges for the whole of December over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – I’m so excited!

We are trimming our tree today, giving me inspiration for my card this week.

There’s still time to make that special card for that certain someone before Christmas, so I hope you’ll join in.  As always, the first challenge of the month is a sketch …

I used two shades of blue to stamp the background using the Christmas Season stamp set by Stampin Up. The sentiment is from Christmas to Remember …

The die cut trees and snowflake are by Lora Bailora, mounted on a deckle edge die cut by Tim Holtz.  I love these modern die cuts – so cute!

I added some tiny stars and a little dazzling diamonds for added sparkle.  I found the perfect shade of navy ribbon in my stash to finish the card.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week. The ladies on the design team have created some gorgeous cards for your inspiration, so do hop on over to take a look.

Enjoy your weekend

More holiday decorations

Hello and welcome.

It’s a brand new month and we have a new hostess over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  As always, the first challenge of the month is a sketch.  Here’s my take on it …

The Christmas lights dies by Spellbinders are just gorgeous.  I cut the lights in melon mambo, pink pirouette and granny apple green card, all by Stampin Up, and adhered them to plain white card to show the highlights.  The tops of the lights and the string were cut from silver card by Sizzix.

I matted and layered Christmas dsp from my stash and pool party card and popped this up with foam tape onto a 6″ square white base card.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant.

Finally, I added crystal effects by Stampin Up to the lights to give them a shiny look.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We also have a Design Team call out, so if you fancy being part of our wonderful design team, hop on over to the blog to learn more.

Enjoy your weekend
