Xmas Fun!

Happy Saturday my friends,

I am here with some more Xmas fun. I have had another go at doing a grungy Xmas card using non traditional colours. I have combined stamps from Stamplorations and CAS-ual Fridays.

I used the sketch from the challenge at Stamplorations and added some embossing for the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. I was actually inspired to make this card when I saw the new challenge 'Stamps and Sequins' at Stamplorations-I don't have any sequins but after making my card for Nonni's Xmas card 'stash and scraps' challenge, I decided to have another hunt through cards that have been given to me to see if I could find any sequins. I found 3 red sequins but they didn't go with my colour combo. After hunting again I found 1 pink heart sequin that I could use! So my card only has one little sequin but I hope this will be acceptable!!

Here is the sketch I based my card on:

  7. Great colors ... love the grunge stamping - so fun! I have a few packets of sequins, but I can't seem to make them work on my cards ... hmmmm - what's that all about. I struggle with adding buttons as well, so maybe I have a problem with round things??!! :) Anyways, your heart sequin is sweet ... and adds some nice shine to your card. Loll xx

  12. Sandie, I love your modern, trendy take on the sketch! The polka dots embossing go so well with your stamping. That lone pink heart sequin is the just perfect embellishment for this sweetheart of a card!
