MFT Polar Pals Christmas card and Papertrey Ink Christmas Faith and Penny Black Cut and Stitch Circle Christmas card


Hello and welcome to another challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges.

This time we have 2 themes for you

C for Christmas Carols 

and D for Diamonds

Our lovely host, Wilma has a great prize for the randomly drawn winner.

Here are my cards - first up C for Christmas Carols

I love the look of white on kraft, and for this card, I used a new Penny Black Cut and Stitch Circle die to create the white background along with some kraft coloured gingham paper. The doves are from the Papertrey Ink Christmas Faith stamp set and the line from the Carol is also on that set. 

My second card covers D for Diamonds 

For this one, I used the sweet bear and little trees from My Favorite Things Polar Pals stamp and die set. For the background, I cut a couple of snowdrifts and then die cut them with a stitched circle die. I placed these on another stitched circle which I embossed with a dotty embossing folder to resemble snow, and built up a little snowy scene, tucking the little trees into the snow lines.

As usual, our lovely DT members have lots to show you over on the ABC blog and if you entered last month, don't forget to check over there to see if you were the lucky winner of the prize.

I'd like to play along at

Stay safe and thanks for stopping by.

The beautiful card evokes the atmosphere of a carol. I like soft colors and fake paper stitching, it looks very interesting. Thank you so much for playing at CCAYR.

What beautiful cards Carol! I love the kraft and white card, it is so pretty. The white layer is so pretty with the die you used, it is fun to have that "window" to the gingham plaid underneath and I love that it debosses too, very cool! Love the doves and sentiment. Love, love, love this card! Your second card is adorable. Love the colors on this one too. That bear is so cute, he just makes me smile. Cute scene you have created with him. Hugs, Brenda

Beautiful pair of festive greetings. The first design is as timelessly pretty as new fallen snow. The second is cuter than winter is chilly.
