Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Guest DT Card

I'm sure that regular visitors to my blog will have noticed my love of making Christmas cards...it's my favourite type of card to make, and I make them all year round...so I was thrilled to be asked last week, to guest design for the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge

The theme for their challenge this week is a colour one:

'Chocolate & Roses'
(in other words...Brown & Pink)

An unusal, but delicious sounding colour combination for Christmas cards! I've used a Whiff of Joy image...'Ice Skating Henry Mouse'...watercolouring him to match the yummy 'Eskimo Kisses' papers (by BasicGrey), which I've matted on to chocolate brown card. I cut a snowflake using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die out of the same card, adding some 'frosting' around the edge with a white chalk inkpad, and popped a few pieces of card candy in the opposite corner.


Why not get ahead with your Christmas cards this year, and join in the fun at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long...where there's plenty of inspiration from their fabulous design team!
