Christmas Card Number 17

Here we are again! It's another Sunday and another card into the Joy of Sets Christmas 2018 Challenge Album. Thank you so much for dropping in.

Do go and check out the album it's filled with Christmas card making inspiration. You can join in the Joy of Sets by clicking HERE and requesting to join. The membership is growing fast. The only reason the group is set to Secret is because we share addresses on there for swaps and RAKs and more so the group admin have to protect the privacy of the members. There's nothing untoward going on in there I can promise you that. It's one of my favourite papercrafting groups, so many wonderfully talented crafters and such a clear and clever way to share using the albums which are stamp set, paper or theme sorted. There are plenty of challenges to get involved with too, RAKs, swaps, blog hops and soon to be a design team in 2019.

Anyway this is my card and there is a full tutorial on it on my You Tube channel which you can drop in and check out by clicking HERE.



For this one I used my usual Stampin' Up! basics of cardstock, adhesives, dimensionals and ribbon. I used Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler, good old traditional Christmas colours. The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler retired as is the little bow. I used the same colour inks and also the Merry Mistletoe stamp set from Stampin' Up! which I just love and still don't feel I've used enough.

I used a paper pad which I think I bought from The Works for just £1 and wanted to show how you can coordinate budget papers with quality Stampin' Up! staples to create a really gorgeous project. I hope I pulled that off with this panelled triple z fold card which ties up with a ribbon.



Full dimensions and a run through of each and ever piece is included in the tutorial video and trust me, there are a lot of pieces. I do think it was worth spending some time cutting them all out though, I do love this card. It could be made more elaborate with the addition of die cuts and other embellishments but I really do love simple and so for me it's perfect as it is.

Enjoy giving this one a go and enjoy what's left of the weekend.

    1. Thank you. They're really quite odd papers, they have a very unusual texture but they look fab. I think Stampin' Up! cardstock and colour coordinated bits and bobs really help to make the best of more budget brands.

    1. Thank you, it's such a great fold to use up scraps and to really display a range of papers from a particular stack.
