Poinsettia Christmas

Hello. A new challenge has begun at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge – the theme is ‘anything goes Christmas’. Here is my card:

I used Concord & 9th cardstock for the red and green leaves on the poinsettia, curled or bent the leaves a little for added dimension, before sticking them together.

The stitched backdrop is from Lawn Fawn, with some gold and Kraft striped paper at the top and bottom edges.

The die cut sentiment is from Altenew, layered a few times.

That’s it – fairly straight-forward – and it came together quite easily, I must say.

I hope you can come and join us with your Christmas creations – they can be anything Christmas, and not just cards. I look forward to seeing you there. xx

Sparkle and Texture Christmas

Hi there. A new challenge has started at ABC Christmas Challenge. The letters this time are ‘S’ for Sparkle, and ‘T’ for Texture. Here is my take:

I die cut the Stamps By Me Bauble outline of of green shiny card, then the actual bauble inside from Crafters Companion glitter card, adhering them together.

The white piece of card is embossed using the We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folder called ‘Gemstone’. I liked the ‘fractured’ look of this folder, almost like ice crystals, I think.

The whole card is 5×7 inches, a size and shape I like to work with quite regularly.

The Altenew die-cut sentiment put to keep the card quite clean and simple. I was toying with the idea of putting some red on the berries, but I like this green look for the card, and adding another colour didn’t seem right.

I hope you can come and join us for this challenge, and I look forward to seeing your creations. Feel free to pop along to the challenge and see the other amazing creations from the Design Team. 🙂 🙂
