Quirky Crafts Challenge 18 - Christmas


I picked this fortnight's challenge over on the Quirky Crafts Forum and I thought we should do Christmas before we get there. My card is stamped and embossed in silver using two Penny Black stamps. I love this tree and hope to use it in many ways, but as it is so near Christmas I might not manage that. Still have loads of cards to make though so maybe sticking to one stamp and design is the way forward, also it is hard to remember who I gave which card to last year. I made 11 of these cards with varying trimmings. All panels were die cut with Nestabilities large rectangle and large scalloped rectangles.
Ribbon was a RAK from Deanne, thanks Deanne, and I think I have some more of the same somewhere in my stash, if only I could find it.........

We have just been to our first Christmas party of the year and it was good fun. Took another evening out of making those cards though!

You can enter any project you like in this fortnightly challenge, and you could win a prize. There are some wonderful DT examples on the forum including an altered tin, and an exploding box with darling tree in the middle.

  1. Love your embossed tree Cazzy! My son-in-law has now 'borrowed' my heat gun for the week, so no embossing for me! Thanks for popping over about the Crafts Beautiful blog spot thingy. I subscribe to that mag, it takes me all month to get through it~ but I haven't found it yet! What month was it in?! (Bit excited now!!)
