ABC Christmas Challenge – W and X

ABC Christmas Challenge has reached the letters ‘W’ and ‘X‘. The themes for the Christmas creations should be ‘White’ and/or ‘Xtra Special‘. Here are my cards:

As you can see – I had a ‘white’ moment for both cards. I think white on white gives a touch of elegance,especially with a pop of gold.

For the trees card, I dry embossed a dotty pattern onto a white panel – I think it should be rain drops – but also looks like snow to me……

The trees from Elizabeth Craft Designs were die cut out of white glitter card stock, and the sentiment is from a previous foiling session.

For the more involved snowflake card, I created a panel of white linen card smaller than the base, then used my bone folder and scoreboard to create a frame around the edge, and a few lines at the top of the ornament- almost a hanging thread or string.

The snowflake was die cut from white card stock and white glitter card – a new card for me from Pink Frog Crafts here in the UK – and adhered to the bottom of the dry embossed lines.

The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp – the outline in Spellbinders gold cardstock and the inner parts of the words from the same glitter card stock. I didn’t use the shadow layer.

As I had used gold for the outline of the words, I had the ‘bright’ idea of inlaying some gold back into the snowflake. I say ‘bright’ ‘cos that was fiddly as fiddly as could be – but I’m glad I didn’t give up as I like the result.

I hope you can come and jpoin with your Christmas/Festive creations following our theme – I look forward to seeing a White and Xtra Special gallery. xx

Hello there. ABC Christmas Challenge has started a new challenge, and we have started from the beginning of the alphabet again. We would like to see the themes of ‘A for Anything goes Christmas’ and ‘B for Baubles‘. Here is my card:

The background pattern is a die from Catherine Pooler, added to a slimline card base. The baubles are die cut from an Elizabeth Craft Designs die set, and the bauble toppers and snowflakes die cut from – I think – Stampin Up glimmer card. A CAS design, but with some extra glittery feel to it.

I did toy with the idea of adding some twine or string to each bauble, but obviously decided not to.

I hope you can come and join us with your Christmas creations using the above two themes. xx
