Colour Throwdown Challenge #173 & Merry Monday Challenge #1

Hey Everyone

I’ve been quiet for a few days as we’ve been painting our house (not fun!) so I’ve haven’t had a chance to head to my craft room and play until today.  I’m combining challenges for this card – Colour Throwdown Challenge #173 & Merry Monday Challenge #1 (which I’ve just discovered on Lesley’s blog). I said in a post a couple of weeks ago that I was kinda over Christmas, but after finding Lesley’s challenge I think it’s a great idea to make a weekly Xmas cards and that way when Xmas sneaks up on me this year – I’ll be ready.  It also gives me a chance to use my only used once Christmas set – Christmas Lodge.  We don’t have this set in Australia yet so I had to buy it off ebay.

Here’s my card:

Here’s a close up of frame that I made using Lots of Tags die in my big shot, my slot punch and threaded ribbon through to hold it down.  It also shows how messy I am with dazzling diamonds!

Thanks for stopping by.

Products used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Real Red, Love Letter DSP (retired), Basic Gray
Ink: Black Stazon
Stamp Sets: Christmas Lodge, Short & Sweet
Other Products: Black Satin Ribbon, Nestabilities, Lots of tags die, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Dazzling Diamonds

See ya

  1. This is such a rich and elegant looking card! Love that Christmas tree image – a stamp we did not get here. Love too the way you used the ribbon!
