Over at Jingle Belles Rock blog site they do a weekly Christmas card Challenge! this week is to make a Christmas Card without using designer paper!!! It's a CARDSTOCK CHRISTMAS!!!
These are my cards for this Challenge! I drew inspiration from Splitcoaststampers Weekly Inkling #258 for a really cool side step card! It's really easy and quick! I can also see it with sand but that's another card. Since each card starts out at 5 1/2 x 81/2 you get two from one sheet of cardstock!! I then used my cuttlebug and embossed white cardstock with the Winter Village folder and 2 different snowflake folders.
It's hard to tell in these pictures but I cut the Winter village down to be the big step on the left side of one card and for the other I used it as the last step on the right for depth of field...
The snow flake folders were hand cut with my decorator scissors to mimic snow drifts. I used some stickers from my stash for Christmas Joy and found some rub ons clear in the bottom of my stash for the share Joy! Both images were colored by mom, who is 99 and still coloring strong!!! I used glitter everywhere on the Christmas Joy Card for Lauren at Jingle Belles and sparkly ribbon for me.On the Share Joy card I used stick on bling that I won from over at Betty Bee's BuzzHope you like them they were fun to do and really easy! Check it out!! and give it a try!!!
check out over at Jingle Belles Rock and see what the other papercrafters came up with sans designer paper!!! should be lots of great ideas!!!
Let me know if you have any ideas to make my photos better. I've tried editing them on Picnik but still not happy with the results.... what am I doing wrong!?! The cards are so much better in person!!!
