The Glory of Christmas challenge 24: the three kings


This is my design card for The Glory of Christmas challenge 24 that starts today. Please click on the link to see the creations of others in the team - and please join in with our challenge.

The background of my card is a piece of Hunkydory card, with a scrap strip across the bottom. The 'with love' sentiment is one that I've had for ages (it is more purple in real life and matches perfectly with the rest of the card). The picture of the wise men was upcycled from a card received. So I'm showing this on my CHNC challenge 158 which is asking for cards to use something that is upcycled, re-purposed or something that was free. Please have a look at that challenge and join in if you can.

Anything goes for the Christmas Card Club challenge


Sylvie has chosen 'anything goes' to ease the Christmas Card Club ladies into the New Year (thank you, Sylvie). I've chosen to make another card using upcycled pieces from a Christmas card received and a couple of items from Christmas crackers. If you'd like to know about the Christmas Card Club please get in touch and I'll point you in the right direction.

The background card is Hunkydory. The middle square with the foiled and glittery big snowflakes was from a Christmas card we received (too good to put into the paper recycling box), which I matted on to a piece of silver mirror card. The two white trees with silver foiling were from the fronts of two Christmas crackers.

So this is another card for my own CHNC challenge 158 - click on the link, please, to learn more about this and join in with your own creation.
