Week 4 - Christmas in July Card Challenge

This week's card challenge was to make a card with some dimension and we were not allowed to use any rubber stamps at all.
I used a digital scrapbooking image by Valerie Randall of the angel. Printed it three times and made a paper tole from it. Added some glitter. The background is the front off an old Christmas card ( nice to be able recycle it ).

Week 3 Christmas in July Card Challenge


This challenge is from the forum of Ideal Papercrafts. I nearly forgot to share this here last week. We were asked to create a card using non-traditional Christmas colours. I chose to work with purple and cream.

I am now editing and adding this information: Today I discovered my card was voted the best for last week so I won a prize of a pack of Christmas papers ( this is 12 x 12 papers used for scrapbooking as well as for cardmaking)

Week 2 - Ideal Papercrafts Christmas card in July Challenge


The challenge for this week was to have the word "Star" somewhere on our card. This rubber stamp by Stamp-It was just perfect for this challenge.
