Sparkle's Christmas card challenge Week 8

Sunday, January 25, 2009




For this week, Sparkle challenged us to make a square card. That is what I did for my second card. The base is 5x5. I inked up a stamp from CTMH's vintage Christmas set. Just Chillin' is the paper packet used. Brads and the snowflake punch finished off the card.

For my first card, I wanted to use the paper packet Holly Days from CTMH. I love the bright colors in it. I wanted to add buttons (GASP) but didn't have any coordinating waxy flax in these colors. I thought that maybe I could die some white waxy flax and voila, I have green waxy flax to match my card.

If you haven't checked out Sparkle's blog yet, go do it now. Join us in making Christmas cards each week and you won't regret it come next December.

These are wonderful! I have such a hard time making non-image cards. Maybe I'll challenge myself next week to try! BTW I love your blog design! So pretty!
