Hi
I love Christmas and there have been so many challenges going around but I really like Mary from Cardz TV. She is awesome. I made this card using my metallic stack by DCWV.  I chose the gold textured for my card which measures 6′ x 5 1/2″. I also used a Christmas pack from K& Company I bought last year. I used the red snowflakes background but I used silver Stickles to make the snowflakes pop. I cut my Christmas tree using my Potpourri cartridge at 4.5″. The jewels are a find from Downtown Los Angeles  garnet district (the have awesome crafting supplies here and for 1/2 the price than the big stores).  Finally, I just printed Feliz Navidad onto plain paper using my Cool Dots font at size 16. I used green card stock for the shadow of the tree and the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

 

I love 365 Cards Challenges because they always give me a visual image to work with. I did an “old” Victorian house using the Heritage cartridge. I folded an 8.5 x 11″ sheet in half from Colorbook – yellow paper – and cut the light blue layer from a piece of scrap I also had from Colorbook pastels. The layer is 5″ X 8″. The house is found on page 39 and was cut at 4.5″  I embossed with my Cuttlebug using the Houndstooth folder. I distressed the house using Martha Steward metallic inks. I cut my own curtains and the “stained glass” in the windows with older scraps from Martha Steward glitter paper. Here is mine take on the “old” challenge:

 

I made this for MPS Team Design Contest but since I did not get chosen I will now publish this card that I am very proud of.  I spent a lot of time on it. I has a lot of bling to it… I hope you all like it.

Here is my recipe for the card:

Pogoda Cartridge
 Cut the dragon on page 34 at 4″ using the following papers:

Red paper for red accent strip – By Paper Source
Copper paper for body of dragon- By Paper Source
White paper used for the shadow – by Cypress Fashion colors – The paper company


 The Lanterns were also cut using the Pogoda Cartridge on page 24.
They were cut at 2″
 Red paper – By Paper Source
 White paper – by Cypress Fashion colors – The paper company

Embellishments:

 Clear sequins that I had left over form my wedding dress (OMG.. that
is like 9 years ago).
 Silver and pink rhinestones from Bead Party.

The card:

 regular 8.5 x 11″ paper folded in half –  Black paper – by Bazzill
Basics – Beetle Black with texture

3D dots to raise the dragon and lanterns.


Stamp:

You are an Animal from The Pink Stamper’s Punny-licious set. It was set on a pre-cut
flower that I bought from Michael’s a long time ago.

I set each little sequin and bead using tweezers and Elmer’s Craft and

bond clear glue on the dragon once I had put it all together.

This is my first card using the Punny-licious stamps from My Pink Stamper. The card is an A2 size card using one of my pretty economy papers from Big Lots. I used the Create a Critter Whale and cut it at 3″. I used the printed eyes that I got from Joann’s. These are so cute as they have eyelashes printed right on them. I also used my Friskars punch to do the edging and a green scrap to cut the green accent on it.
