Hello everyone. I am pleased and excited to announce that here is the first post as fully-fledged Design team member at ABC Christmas Challenge.
The current challenge is the start of the New Year, and the start of the alphabet. Goodness – there are some amazing themes coming up – I hope you can play along. I have discovered an amazing and friendly team, I have learnt how to use blogger – a little, anyway – and I’ve discovered that I’m going to be making Christmas cards all year long. All. Year. Long.
All those will be posted here, and will all be posted on Instagram. Please say hello when you see our cards.
The first challenge is ‘A’ and ‘B’, of course. The theme being anything goes, and/or berries. Now, I hunted everywhere for berry stamps or dies, and couldn’t find anything with berries that I really wanted to use. What I did find, was this unused, yet been with me for ages, Hero Arts Colour Layering Trimmings stamp and dies.
Here is the card – anything goes (Christmas):
I stamped the layers of the leaves on a white piece of card, then added to a green and white card base – then stamped some more, die cut them, and added to the edge for dimension.
I wanted to give the impression of a Christmas Tree hanging over the edge of the card.
I hope you are able to come and join the fun, and I look forward to seeing your makes – and I even get to comment officially now – yay!
I shall also be entering this card into the following challenges:
AAA cards – three of something – (three added branches)
Clean and Simple on Friday – CAS Christmas card
The Alphabet Challenge blog – ‘T’ for Trees
