Christmas Club Challenge


This time we have the lovely Clare back, all rearing to go so she set us the challenge of producing a pack of cards using either the same image or same papers. It was a challenge alright but I am so glad for it as I now have another four cards instead of one to add to my  Christmas collection:)

 This one I went all blues, papers and sentiment from Hot off the Press, Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, Image from Meljens. Border was punched and embossed using MS snowflake border punch. I add two brads to the sentiment.
 I went with beige colours for this one. Papers and sentiment from HOTP, image Meljens, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, two small brads and glitter.
 Reds and greens for this one. Items same as above. Border cut with fancy cut scissors.
More of the same, reds, greens and creams. Border cut using ek success border punch.
I would like to enter these into
Christmas Cards all year round - followed their sketch for all the cards
Incy Wincy - bingo choice (red, Christmas sentiment, ribbons) (3rd and 4th cards)
DYSU - splash of blue (1st card)
Southern Girls - bingo choice (glitter, ribbon, embossing) (1st card)
PanPastel - frosty and bright (1st card)
Sundays with Crissy - no red and green (1st card)
