John Next Door Bauble Frame and Altenew Diamond Frame Christmas cards

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenges.

Our host this time is the talented Helene from Mummylade and she has a little gift for the winner of this month's challenge

We have three themes for you this month and as we have reached P, Q, and R we have:

P for Pink

Q for Quarter


R for Reindeer

First up is my P for Pink

I took some white card and used inks to blend a pink ombre effect with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxides. I cut the Altenew Diamond Frame cover die and added this to the panel. 

The focal image was made with the Sue Wilson Festive Collection Christmas Tree Greetings die which I cut a couple of times in green and white so I could stack them and add a drop shadow.

My second card is Q for Quarters

For this one, I used the John Next Door Bauble Frame dies and just used the inner parts of the baubles to cut into the card. This provided three of the quarters and I completed the fourth one by adding a die-cut snowflake to the card. I matted the panel onto some aqua card and placed some red emelishments to add some contrast.

You'll find lots of inspiration over on the ABC Christmas Challenges blog and I'd love to see your entry in the gallery.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by.
