Last week’s challenge at Ett julkort i veckan (A Christmas card a week), was to make a card with snow, snowflakes or monochromatic white. I made mine with snowflakes and almost only white (there’s a little blue in the backround paper).
I just finished my card for this week’s ColourQ challenge. All papers used (besides the card base) are various scraps.
I’m part of two different challenges to make a Christmas card a week, so this card is for both. 😉 One is the Facebook group Julkort 2012, and one is the blog Ett julkort i veckan. The theme for the blog challenge this week was to make a card with pink as the main color.
I’ve used a pink dotted paper from Maja Design’s Sommartider (the total opposite of Christmas, it’s from a summer collection!), Grunge Corner stamp from Inkido, embossed with Frost embossing powder, a Christmas sentiment (I don’t remember where that’s from?!) stamped with Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Fiskars border punch Threading Water, YouDo brown glitter glue and a chipboard snowflake from Little Yellow Bicycle’s 25 Days of Christmas.
Tonight I made a card for Color Throwdown #173:
I used a red card base, paper from Best Creation’s Rock Star, rubberstamp from Stapminback, silver and red punchinella, red dotted organdy ribbon, a star brad and some silver rhinestones.
Hopefully the recepient will like the card. 😀
Dang! I made a card for a challenge in the Less is More blog earlier this week. Didn’t get to take a pic of it until today though. I thought today was the last day to participate, but obviously the challenge is now closed. Oh well, I don’t know if my card really was a “less is more” card anyway.
However, the challenge was to use only one word as sentiment on the card front. I wrote Kram, which is the Swedish word for Hug, with Thickers Tiara letters. Background paper is a piece from DCWV The Street Lace stack. Then a black ribbon, and using the Fiskars Sunburts border punch on the black cardstock and – voilà!
