Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge 'Frame It'

Our Badge

Hello everyone, and a specially warm welcome to Radhika of hobbycrafts.blogspot who has joined us as a new follower this week.

The very good news is that Cindy has been working like a Trojan and has got the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge blog up and running again, so we are able to offer this week's challenge after all. The challenge title this week is 'Frame It' and I came up with this card

I used a Lil' Inker stitched die on my base card and cut a panel to to fit in the frame that it created. I then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the hanging frames in two colours and pieced them together. The letters were cut with a Sizzix Script alphabet die set and I glued these in the frames and coated them with some Wink of Stella glitter to add some sparkle. The 'Christmas' stamp is from Papertrey Ink Christmas Labels and the stamped bow die cuts were from their Birthday Style set. A couple of gems on the bows finished it off. It feels good to have a couple of next Christmas's cards under my belt so why not join us and head over to the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge blog to see inspirations from my Teamies.

Thanks for stopping by
