Get Ready for Christmas

Hello again, 

I'm running extremely late with this post, this week brought us to a new Challenge for Crafting by Designs, we would love you to join in our Get Ready for Christmas challenge and show us what you are making, we have a lovely sponsor this week All Dressed Up  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 super cute digi stamps A Star is Born and in an effort to keep me on track for the number of Christmas cards I need I have made a two of cards with the image, I have gone a little modern with my patterned papers, I fell in love with Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel papers they released last year, welllll, they are purple it was pretty much a given that they would find their way home with me. 

I printed the image twice one is slightly larger than the other, having a plan to use my Kaisercraft Bracket dies on one. Due to the larger size of the Kaisercraft paper pads I didn’t need to hide any paper joins on the C7 (5x7”) card blank, the sentiment came in the paper pad pre die cut. I added some stars die cut and punched from silver glitter paper to finish my card off.

My second card uses some of my scrappy papers from a pad called Home for Christmas, the striped paper was cut already, I cut it in half to make sure that it looks like it covers the whole card front masking the gap with the poinsettia paper, the sentiment was a part of a chalkboard page which I cut out.
