CHNC challenge 461


This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 461 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'make your own background'.

I have to admit to almost cheating with the set of stamps I've added for this challenge - one of the quick sets I made when I was selling to raise money at our McMillan coffee morning. The card blanks were made with some embossed matt silver card, opening from the short end for a change, on to which were added the backgrounds made with holographic card using an embossing folder, with peel off greetings added as well as a sparkly gems snowflake on each card, from Hobbycraft.



I've really missed blogging, but have so many card orders that I've been making and still have to make that I've had no time to blog them ... one day soon, hopefully.

The background paper for my card is from Dovecraft's Festive Wonder paper pad.

The grosgrain ribbon is from my Christmas stash ... I now only have a very little left ... sad!

My main 'something beginning with the letter S' is, of course, snow and snowflakes ... with a sparkly sentiment too.

Just for you


This card was made up of various offcuts which included the middle piece cut from a notecard from a set, with some chipboard scalloped circles and some other chipboard pieces including the sentiment. The piece of card across the middle with the sort of chevron pattern is silver foiled, although this doesn't show up in the photo. I love the colour combo of the lilacs and blues.

It wasn't easy getting a photo because of the glare or a reflection of myself in the mirror card - lol, so this is the best I could do.

This is a card I made for my great nephew's 21st birthday. Supplies are all from Kanban except the lettering and the numerals which were from Poundland.
