I did LOTS of Christmas cards and am giving away blog candy next week. But first, let me share a card I did for the Splitcoaststampers Limited supplies challenge called "'Leaf' it to me, baby!" which was a challenge to do a card using leaf images. Part 2 of the challenge is to do a pink card in honor of breast cancer awareness month. So here is my card:
I used a variety of scrap papers and ribbons. Additionally I used some thin fibrous pink paper and my Sizzix leaf die cut. I sponged some cocoa ink around the edges to age it a little. I also distressed the rectangle and circle edges and sponged a little brown on the circle, too. I thought this could be an encouraging card for a friend.
So I was checking out Taylor's blog and found a great challenge this week so I decided to integrate it into some Christmas cards. The picture above is specifically for her sketch. I also did several variations just for variety. These Christmas cards are quite contemporary. I stopped by the local scrapbook store and found these cool papers, by Luxe and BoBunny that coordinate well. I also used natural white cardstock, Stampin' Up's Build-A-Brad, some ribbons and buttons and hemp twine. I really enjoyed making these cards. I made 6 in all, and only used [less than] 2 sheets of the designer papers. I switched up some of the sketch to do the other 4 cards- check them out:
So what do you think about these cards? Too contemporary for Christmas? Well, some people on my Christmas list are more contemporary than others. I personally LOVE them. I thought these papers were the coolest for Christmas. So I decided I would give some away as blog candy!
