It's the first Wednesday of a new month, so that means it's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge! Wilma is the host, and the themes are:
'N is for North Pole'
'O is for Off to One Side'
There's a wonderful prize on offer for the lucky winner:
I was sure I had a paper pad called 'North Pole', so rummaged through all of my papers, but all that I could find was this snippet of paper from the 'Festive Chalkboard' pad by Craftwork Cards that featured a stack of signs, one of which pointed to the 'North Pole', so that's what I used. It was already trimmed to about the right size for a DL card, so I cut a piece of red glitter card to layer it on...distressing the edges a little, then simply adding it to a white card blank.
For my 'Off to One Side' card, I stamped a selection of snowflakes (from the Creative Expressions 'Bold Snowflake', Hero Arts 'Wintertime Messages', Happy Little Stampers 'Let it Snow', Stampendous 'Delicate Snow' sets) off the edge of a kraft card blank using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed them in white. I added a sentiment from a Colorado Craft set, also embossed in white, then a touch of teal to the snowflakes using a watercolour pencil.
I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:
