Christmas Card Challenges #16

One more Christmas Card finished -- are you working on yours? If you are, we'd love to have you join us this week at Christmas Card Challenges. The theme is: Chevrons.

I have to admit that after I finished this card and looked close, I think the pattern looks more like "Herringbone" than "Chevron" but it'll have to do. Once again, I used a few items from my scrap box: the border piece, lace ribbon and embossed red CS. It doesn't appear to be going down as fast as I thought it would, but it feels good every time I use a few scraps.

I stamped the image twice using VersaMark Ink. I used green embossing powder on one and colored it with Copics. On the second one I used gold embossing powder and colored the bell with gold and silver markers. I added dimensionals to the main image and also under the bell.  I carried the paper and border to the inside as well.

We'd love for you to stop by the Christmas Card Challenges blog and see what all the DT members have created this week for your inspiration. Join with us and make a Christmas Card . . . you don't have to use Chevrons, just as long as you make a Christmas Card. And, when November comes around . . . you'll thank me.


  1. I think if what is really zig-zag counts as chevron, then herringbone counts, too. ;) Regardless, you have ended up with another lovely Christmas card for your stash. :)

  2. Another lovely card for the Christmas box. Hugs x
