Today brings us to our monthly Get ready for Christmas Challenge at Crafting by Designs, we would love you to join in and show us your Christmas cards you are making, we have one lovely sponsor this month A Day for Daisies will be giving the lucky winner $12 gift certificate for their store.
PRIZE $12 gift certificate for their shop
I have used one of our sponsors digi stamps Scotty Mistletoe ‘A’ and in an effort to get me on track for the number of Christmas cards I need I have made a three cards with the image, all with vintage style papers and paper pieced coats. The first card I realized after printing out my image was rather large and for the next two cards I decreased the size of the image, I tried to make them all a little different using different dies, embellishments and papers, the third card is smaller than the other two.
This challenge is open from Anzac Day to May 1st , and you can add your project by using the Linky tool on our page. Please be sure to link your project back to us.
