Holly Jolly Bingo

Hi everyone,


Ready for a new Christmas Challenge?  We are over at Holly Jolly Christmas and this week we are playing Bingo!


Cindy is the host of this week’s challenge and the Bingo board looks like this:












Still need some inspiration, check out what all the other Christmas Elves have created by clicking here!


What is my Bingo choice?  I have chosen Ribbon, Snowflakes and Blue.


I have used the Snow Swirled stamp set and the base of my card is Marina Mist – love this colour!


I have added a piece of Whisper White card stock and I have embossed about half of the cardstock in the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.


I have stamped on some scrap paper the smaller snowflakes from the stamp set in Marina Mist ink and then punched them out using the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. 


The little snowflakes were added to the centre of the embossed image, which to me looks a little like a large snowflake with dimensionals and of course I have added ‘bling’.


The Swirly Christmas Tree was stamped once in Night of Navy and then using the stamp-a-ma-jig stamped again a little off to the right in Marina Mist.  Looks a bit freaky but I love it :)


The sentiment is also from the same set and the ribbon is Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon (retired).


Here is my card…







Stamp set: Snow Swirled

Card: Marina Mist, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy, Marina Mist

Accessories:  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Marina Mist Ribbon (retired), Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



I am really happy with the end result and would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
