Christmas Card Challenge #18

Thank you for stopping by today. We have an easy challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenges:
Anything Goes

It may seem a bit odd, since our challenges every week do have an "Anything Goes" option, but this week there's no Photo or Color Challenge to inspire you. . . so you're on your own.  I can't wait to see what you create.

I have a mini tutorial for you this week; so grab a cuppa and let's get crafty.

I decided to use my "Quilt" Embossing Folder for my card. Since my 1-1/4" punch was just a tad shy of the "squares" on the EF, I had to adjust the layout; which meant the squares on the outer edges would need to be cut so they fit an A2 card and there'd be a slight gap between the squares.

All lined up and ready to be embossed.

This is the back side.  You can see the quilt pattern a bit better on solid cardstock...and you can see where the DSP needs to be trimmed.

All trimmed and ready for the outer band of green (every quilt has an outer edge, right?).  I could have just placed the squares on top of the green, but I felt the additional "frame" looked least it does in person.  I so have a lloonngg way to go in photographing my cards. :-(

I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the stars, because after all...stars twinkle LOL

I decorated the inside and completed the sentiment.

Stop by the Christmas Card Challenges blog and see what the other Designers created this week. Then, get busy and link up your Christmas card. I can't wait to see your creation.


Thank you for commenting. Your words of encouragement keep me 'crafting.'
