Dream Valley 22 Christmas

It’s the last challenge of the year over at Dream Valley and in keeping with the season we want to see your Christmas creations. Anything goes, doesn’t have to be a card.

It’s our last challenge at Dream Valley until 8th January, so you have until the 7th to get those Christmas entries in.

For my card I stamped the gorgeous Papermania Christmas Cheer stamp using a Kaleidoscope Multi inkpad and then embossed with clear powder. I punched four snowflake corners and then mounted it onto brown shimmery paper, and mounted that onto a scalloped card blank.

To my horror I realised I don’t have a Poinsettia punch or die (what are you like Linda, Christmas and no poinsettias) so I substitued the marianne die instead, and I cut through both the patterned and orange paper at the same time which meant that the orange card beneath retained the insides of the petals, which was the effect I was after, and I sort of hoped the end result was a bit like a poinsettia. Of course, it’s bright orange, but hey that’s artistic licence for you.
