Trifold card


Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

This is a trifold card made with a sparkly stardream deep blue card blank and Hunkydory 'moonlight Christmas' card and elements.

The background for each of the three parts of the card was originally one A4 picture, so it flows from the front panel into the middle and then the back - harder to show on here than irl.

This card uses paper, topper and sentiment from a kit that I've had for quite a time and can't remember where it came from. I'm trying to use up some of the odd things that I have in one of my boxes of mixed goodies that were put aside for making some day!

CHNC challenge 192: people matter


Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

The theme  for CHNC challenge 192 for this week is 'people matter' - I'd like to see people on your Christmas creations - at least one person (can be child or adult, but must be human!) I'd love to see your entries there - and this week there are four prizes to be won by randomly chosen winners.

For my two cards I've used card, toppers and sentiments from a Hunkydory Christmas choir set, part of their Traditional Christmas range. The background card was one piece, but I thought it was too good to fold in half, so I added each half to A5 card blanks. The music strip down the side of each card was offcut from the waste around the die cut toppers etc.

The sentiment on the left hand card says 'Christmas Blessings' and the one on the right says 'Wishing you Peace and Love this Christmas time'.

Completely Christmas challenge 27


Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 27, which is 'anything goes' - as long as it's Christmas, of course. Please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we hope you will join in with your own entries.

I created this card digitally using an iPad background and superimposing Lacy Sunshine's 'Christmas boo' (kindly supplied by the sponsor), which I had coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint and faded around the edges. This clean and simple card was then finished with the digitally produced sentiment.
