 Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme is "Non-Traditional Christmas Colours".

I've gone with a die set from Honey Bee Stamps called Winter Village and have cut the buildings in unusual colours for a Christmas card and used some teal snowy paper for the background which is from  a Whimsy Stamps pad. I must say these dies were really fiddly to use and I had to make it in stages as it was taking so long, but it was good for using up small scraps.

Hammered card was torn across for the snow and I heat embossed the sentiment in silver.

I hope you can join us, there are two prizes on offer and the challenge doesn't close until 7th May so still plenty of time to enter.

I would like to enter:

  3. I really love this card Lynne. My Rudolph Days card for tomorrow's new challenge almost had me weeping at the little fiddly pieces - but you've gone several miles further. The non-traditional colours work so well! And, that Whimsy paper pad is one of my favourites - I love the 'blurry' look and all the paper are very pretty colours as well. So much so that I have a second pad just about ready to be started on!
