Sunny Challenge 70

December 2, 2012

This week our challenge has been brought to us by Vicky and she has given us a great sketch and all we have to do is make a non-traditional Christmas card.  I thought about this for quite a while and decided to make my card using both non-traditional colours and some non-traditional images.  I did take a little licence with the sketch, but not too much.

033I attached Very Vanilla card to scored and folded Elegant Eggplant card.  I cut one piece of River Rock card which I embossed using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and attached it to the top of the Very Vanilla card.  I cut a piece of Melon Mambo card, embossed it using the Stripes Embossing Folder and attached it to the bottom of the Very Vanilla card.  I stamped “Christmas Blessings” from the More Merry Messages stamp set onto the bottom of another piece of Very Vanilla card using Melon Mambo ink.  I embossed a piece of Elegant Eggplant card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached it above the greeting.  I stamped the journalling image from the Everything Eleanor stamp set onto scrap Very Vanilla card using Melon Mambo ink and punched out the centre using the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch and then punched the remainder of the image using the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle which created a “wreath”.  034I used the ornament punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack to punch Silver Glimmer Paper.  I attached a piece of  Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the back of the ornament and then to the back of the wreath before attaching it to the Embossed Elegant Eggplant card.  I did add a Mini Glue Dot to the back of the ornament so that it would stay in position.

All in all I think this has turned out to have a real Christmas feel to it, even using such bright colours.  What do you think?

Now for some more inspiration pop over Sunny Challenges and Creations to see what the rest of the design team have created.  Once you have made your card, scrap page or 3d item add it to Mr. Linky.  I know you guys are busy with your Christmas preparations but we can always use another Christmas card, can’t we?  I look forward to seeing what you have created.

Bye for now, Kris.
