Good Morning Everyone,

Happy 1st of the month.  I can't believe it's August already!

It is time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas challenge and this month we would like to see any christmas projects using kraft card.  I have used kraft for the base layer of my card and also the Sizzix Noel die.   I have lathered the Noel with a sparkle pen so it is quite glittery in real life.

I had these 3 little Mama Elephant reindeers coloured on my desk for ages and thought this was a good opportunity to use them.  I stamped the holly out from another set and coloured it up, fussy cut and added 3 tiny pearls for the berries. The holly paper is from a First Edition christmas pad and three more red pearls complete the card.

I hope you can join us this month and if you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Dream Valley challenge - Christmas in July
Rudolph Days - Late July challenge
Hiding in My Craft Room - Christmas in July
Creatalicious - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will be able to leave a comment.

Have a good week .

  8. Lynne, What a great idea to make kraft letters the focus of your card... and those Mama Elephant reindeer are my favorite Christmas stamp set ever! Great job! :)

  9. What an impressive way to decorate these bold letters with those darling little deer. They are just way too cute. The holly is another nice detail to help draw the eye inwards to see the pretty background paper too. TFS
