Ruth: Something a little bit different from me - I went for an unusual fold card and made this! Use papers from A Home For Christmas along with some ribbon, half pearls I found in my stash and some die cuts. The sentiment ticket is also from the cd.
Shell- I decide to go for a very simple but effective Christmas card this week. I have a lot of cards to make this year and I need something that would be quick but also look good too. I think this fits the job nicely.
I used some papers and a sentiment off A Home For Christmas CD
JAN - I chose to make a 'Three Panel Screen Card' for my folded design, using the fabulous 'A Home for Christmas CD'. The baubles are also cut and folded to give a lovely 3D effect.
Anjie - I decided to do a gatefold easel for this challenge for something a little bit different.I have used images and papers from the A Home for Christmas CD Collection. The images are coloured with Graph'It Markers and slightly distressed with a distress ink. I've added some spider web, flowers and buttons. There's some real fun images in this collection, it's not all about people, although there are some in it, it's more about houses and Christmas Characters, so there is something for everyone.
One shoe I added Stickles glitter glue, I didn't want the shoes the same ! I added some chocolates in a bag with ribbon and printed names, adding holly again.
This is what the shoes look like empty .........NO I didn't eat the chocolates .......... honest !!!
Bev Oh this weeks challenge was so much fun! I made a never ending, kinetic card, using papers and embellies from A Home For Christmas I just added a bit of sparkle to make it pop.
Patty I used the wonderful A Home For Christmas CD to make this cute boys and girls Christmas tags! I use lots of tags at Christmas. I printed the cute girls and boy images on white cardstock and cut them, then aged the white tags, cut a piece of white border and when all the pieces were cut I adhered it all together. I added the red ribbon and tied a small bow with the twine to add with the brown button.
Hopefully the DT have inspired you to make your project for this weeks challenge and we cannot wait for you to share it with us. Please use Mr Linky to add your details so we can come over and see your project in full.
