Christmas Card Club Challenge #12 - Anything Goes

Hi Crafters,

It's our Christmas Card Club challenge this week and we have a nice easy one from Sylvie this time of.....

ANYTHING GOES



I started by playing with some Distress inks  and blended this red and green combination on my cardstock. The stamp is an old Papermania Christmas one which I haven't used much at all so thought I'd better give it some ink. A clearly Besotted banner sentiment stamp, matching die and gold embossing powder finished the design. Nice and flat for posting.


This next card uses Trimcrafts 'Santa's Workshop papers, a Go Kreate Tag die and a Tonic Gingerbread man die with a few card candy's and velvet ribbon. The paper was so pretty with it's glittery canes, lollipops and cupcake trees that I didn't want to cover it up too much. I embossed the tag while it was still in the die which gives it the plain border.
