CCMC473 Carols of Christmas

It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at
This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:
I really like the colour combo, and I was initially going to make a masculine card, but instead I decided to go with a Christmas design, using the new Carols of Christmas bundle. Here's a few tips about this card:
  • The Dapper Denim piece behind my main panel is one of the sheets from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper pack
  • To make the border, I used the Card Front Builder thinlits on each end of the main panel. My panel is 10cm x 14.3cm so it was a little long for the thinlits. To fill the gap in the middle, I used the stars that were cut out from each end, coloured them in with a Dapper Denim marker and then glued them in place
  • As well as the Card Front Builder Dies, I've also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits on this card
  • I cut out trees in Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla, and sponged the Very Vanilla ones with Pear Pizzazz ink. I also sponged the ground in Soft Suede ink
  • To get the 2-tone sentiment, I inked up the stamp in Dapper Denim and stamped it off onto scrap paper. I then sponged Dapper Denim ink direct to rubber on the lower half of the stamp.
  • The gorgeous ribbon on this card is the Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.
I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!
