CHNC challenge 311: colour: grey or silver ... a little or a lot

In the last couple of weeks I've had to make lots of Christmas cards. This isn't because I don't make them early enough because I make Christmas cards throughout the year, which is why I started my CHNC weekly challenges six years ago - to encourage me to make cards throughout the year and, hopefully, to encourage others too.

The problem is that, although I make lots and lots of Christmas cards, I end up selling most of them to raise money for charities and then have the job of making quick cards in December for us to send.

So, for my CHNC challenge 311, I'm showing three quick cards that I made that all feature some silver.

This is the first one, using Hunkydory supplies with a silver strip between the two offcuts, with the addition of a chipboard greeting.

  2. Hi Hazel! This is a really pretty card and beautiful colors. I end up selling too many of my holiday cards too and then scramble to make some of my own...goes with the territory of being crafty I guess, right? Thanks so much for joining my Christmas Critters blog challenge :)
