Hello! It’s time for another stash challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week we’re asking our participants to pull their dies and/or punches out of their stash of crafting supplies and use them to create a Christmas or wintry card.
I’ve paired some of my snowflake dies with some snowflake patterned paper. I used coordinating designer paper to cut the snowflakes. I added some white shimmery paint to the paper before cutting the smallest snowflake. In retrospect, I kinda wish I’d done that for the white snowflake in the background, to help it show up better. Oh well. A simple sentiment banner and a few pearls finish off the card. The sentiment is one of my oldest unmounted stamps; it’s from a Purple Onion Designs set that has been retired. The layout for it is this week’s challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the 52CCT design team has done with their punches and dies. Then share your own card with us using the linky tool at the challenge site. The deadline for participating is 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, June 3. We’d love to have you join in the fun and creativity! Thanks for stopping by today.
