Christmas Scraps

Hi everyone – week going ok?  What about your Christmas cards? 


If you need a little push what about joining us at Holly Jolly!  We have a great new challenge hosted by Cindy which is to create a Scrap Card.


I don’t know about you but I keep that little piece of cardstock or DSP just in case I need it.  So I had a look in my stash and found some scrap DSP, cardstock and ribbon and created my Christmas Card.


The layout of my card was inspired by the current sketch at Cardabilities and I have used Cherry Cobbler for the base the card.  I just love Cherry Cobbler it is such a perfect colour for Christmas cards.


I added an embossed layer of Very Vanilla and the embossing folder I used was Wallpaper Vintage.  I search through my stash and found the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint that I had to have but do not think I have used and added some to the embossing to give a little sparkle to my card.


The scraps used:


  • Be of Good Cheer DSP
  • Crochet Trim Ribbon
  • Very Vanilla, Old Olive & Cherry Cobbler cardstock


The stamp is from the Tags Til Christmas stamp set and of course there is some bling.


Here is my card…






Stamp set: Tags til Christmas

Card: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Ink: Cherry Cobbler

Accessories: Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Wallpaper Vintage & Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Crochet Trim Ribbon (retired), Eyelet Border Punch (retired), Be of Good Cheer DSP, Rhinestones, Decorative Label Punch, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



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