Christmas, again!

Quite a few challenges for this card

Sister Act Card Challenge #71  anything goes

Top Tip Tuesday  anything goes

Papertake Weekly to die for

Christmas Card challenge #38  embossing, wet or dry

Creative Card Crew #68  embossing, wet or dry

613 Avenue Create #'85   anything goes

The George stamp from Molly Blooms was stamped with Memento ink and coloured using ProMarkers and a white gel pen.  I used the Memory Box small Circle Burst and Nestabilities circle die to create the wreath effect and coloured it with a couple of green Memento inks which was attached to the card using 3D foam pads.  The background was made with the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and matted onto green cardstock.  It is finished off with a gold peeloff sentiment on a strip of green card.  I'm pleased with the way this card looks and may possibly do it again but with a different image


  1. Very nicely done, Margaret! Using color only on your focal gives this clean design a lot of pop! Thanks so much for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create!
