52 Christmas Card Throwdown – June 23rd – Stash – Wood Background

DT Badge

 

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we invite you to dig through your stash for something wood to add to your card. I made a very simple card. First I found a perfect background paper from Kaisercraft and cut it to fit an A2 card. Next, I found a wooden plaque made by Prima called Victorian Christmas Wooden Icon and used it as my sentiment. My card took less than 5 minutes to construct.

DT Badge

Our monthly Theme Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is Wreaths. I selected a simple design by Papertry Ink called, Rustic Wreath. I stamped directly on a printed cardstock from the Silent Christmas Collection by Kaiser Craft. I coloured the wreath with my Copic markers. I used a sentiment from the same stamp set. (note: PI also has the matching die)

It is time for our monthly Colour Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We are looking for some very bright and lively colours this week. I selected a fun digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps called Trop Santa Suntan. I coloured him with my Copic markers, fuzzy cut him out and used various papers from my stash. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn – Toboggan Together Set.

It is the first challenge of the month here at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and that means it is our Sketch challenge. For my card, I am using my favourite Christmas stamp called snowy by Penny Black. I coloured him with my Copic markers and arranged him on my card in place of the oval. I have included a ribbon band and a fishtail banner. All the papers are from my stash.

I look forward to seeing all your entries. Please join us each week!

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Stash Challenge – Lace

DT Badge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, our challenge is to use lace on our Christmas Card. Well, I have been hearing a lot about these new “Bow” cards and decided to check them out. Wow! they are simply gorgeous. Just Google bow cards for YouTube videos and numerous beautiful examples. I purchased the template from sandrasscrapshop.blogspot.nl *. I also received written permission from Sandra to make and display my card on the 52CCT website. She sent me the bow card template as a PDF file that allows you to use scissors and a SVG file that you can use the various cutting machines. I used my Cricut. *Please note: there are numerous fabulous projects available to purchase at Sandra’s Scrap Shop. I used various Christmas papers, lace, gems, snowflake buttons from my stash to create my Christmas bow card. I used a heavy cardstock to make the actual card attached to the back of the bow, but I think I will also attach a small loop so the person receiving the card can also hang it as a decoration. I hope you like my first attempt. I will be making more!
