Holly Jolly Bingo

How is everyone?  Isn’t it funny that both the Come and Get It Challenge and the Holly Jolly Challenge both have Bingo this week!


So we hope that you are up for Bingo for a second time !


My choice for the Holly Jolly Challenge is Silver, Snow Flakes and Punches.


Now I have been so excited to purchase and use the new Snow Flurry Die in the Seasonal Catalogue so when I had Snow Flakes as an option there was not doubt that this had be used.


The punch that I used was the Ornament Punch and the Silver is two Star Brads.


The colour combo is Non-Traditional and inspired by the Colour Challenge at Stampin’ Royalty Challenge which is Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Pool Party.


I cut a piece of Vanilla Cardstock using the Top Note Die, stamped the En Francais in Crumb Cake and then sponged some Crumb Cake ink over the whole piece.


Added some more Snow Flakes from the Snow Swirled stamp set, these have been stamped in Soft Suede.


The Ornament is from the Tags Til Christmas stamp set and has been stamped in Pool Party ink.


The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set and has been die cut using the new Bitty Banners Framelits Die.


Here is my card:







Stamp set: Snow Swirled, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, En Francais

Card: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Ink: Pool Party, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake

Accessories:  Ornament Punch, Snow Flurry Die, Top Note Die, Bitty Banners Framelits, Linen Thread,
Star Brads (retired), Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive




Although the card probably looks a little darker than it is in real life, it turned out ok so I am happy.

Your Christmas card looks fantastic! I love the paper you've used as background, with the script and snowflakes, and the large snowflake die cut is impressive! Beautiful, soft non-traditional Christmas color scheme too!
