Another card for CHNC challenge 228


My second card for my CHNC challenge 228 was put together digitally using a digital paper 'baby it's cold outside' from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet (one of our other sponsors), Coosty Creations 'holly girl' paper from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet, layering these and fading the edges of the holly girl paper and adding the Crafty Girl creations 'Christmas ornaments 2', once again given by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet, fading the edges to allow the underneath edges to show through.

CHNC challenge 228: vintage or shabby chic


This is my first design card for my CHNC challenge 228: vintage or shabby chic. I have to admit that I sometimes find 'vintage/shabby chic' rather daunting, but when you think of Christmas, perhaps you can feature an old fashioned snow scene, or a family gathered around the fire, a vintage looking Father Christmas ... I'm sure you will have lots of ideas. And I think it might be a good opportunity to use some of those cards from last year that you couldn't bear to part with ... a bit of upcycling may be.

I've used a beautiful vintage sheet kindly given to me by Heather at  My Artistic Adventures - Christmas angels peace on earth. I scanned this into my Scan n Cut and used it to cut all the pieces - so much quicker than fussy cutting by hand. I then overlapped and matted these on to a piece of fancy pants design winterland paper. All edges were distressed using victorian velvet distress ink. Everything was then mounted on to a sparkling pink card blank.
