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!
