Kylie's Christmas Card Challenge

Hi guys

This evening I'm here to tell you about a new challenge being held by my lovely 'boss' at Addicted to Stamps and More, Kylie.

Kylie will be hosting a Christmas Card Challenge from now until 6pm on 21 December 2014 (AEST) and the challenge linky can be found here.

Kylie has recently started creating watermark and signature designs and the one I'm currently using on my card photos is a Kylie creation.  More of her designs can also be seen on the challenge page.

The prize being offered by Kylie to the winner of the Christmas Card Challenge will be a watermark and signature valued at $40 US.  So why not have a go and enter the challenge, no doubt we are all in full swing creating our Christmas cards, or in my case, the last few weeks rush!

Here's my card to whet your appetite and there are plenty more on Kylie's page to inspire you...

I printed some digi paper from Pink Petticoat onto some thin cardstock and used a stitched curved rectangle die to cut it out.  I then cut some white cardstock with the same die and then cut the tree landscape and snow drift die cuts from each end of the rectangle.  I stamped the sentiment onto the tree landscape die cut and adhered this flat to the patterned background.  The front snowdrift was then aligned and adhered to the panel with 3D foam.  I adhered the completed panel flat to the cardbase before accenting with some Stickles.

Materials used:

  • Digi Paper: Pink Petticoat - Falling Snow
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Rounded Rectangles and Snow Drifts; Clearly Besotted - Tree Landscape Die
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Little Pudding
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stickles - Star Dust
