12/11/21 Winner at Make the Cards Challenge!

Hi friends! Well, we’ve done it once again – we’re near the end of another year! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #152 – Christmas BINGO! You know me and how much I love fun folds – I made a pretty side fold Christmas card. We have a fun challenge for you this time! Using our Christmas BINGO card below, choose one letter in the word BINGO and use at least three items from that column in your project! This is not your typical BINGO card where you go up/down, left/right and diagonally – you can only up and down using the columns – so let’s have some fun!

I chose column ‘I’ on the BINGO card and used four of the five items (flower, silver, pink and gemstone) in my project.

I used the TCW mini harlequin stencil with Ranger picked raspberry distress ink and a quick spritz of Tattered Angels Iridescent Silver Glimmer Mist on the background panels cut from Papertrey Ink Hibiscus Burst cardstock which I trimmed and layered on silver foil cardstock. I used my favorite Hero Arts Paper Layering Poinsettia die set to create the poinsettia on the front from American Crafts Rouge Glitter paper and a scrap of GKD Fresh Asparagus cardstock for the leaves. I adhered the poinsettia with Ranger distress collage medium with looped silver thread beneath it and added a silver foil sentiment cut from the Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Words die set. The finishing touch was the addition of three iridescent gemstones on the narrow panel.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of the pink glitter paper and silver foil cardstock along with a leftover strip of stenciled paper used on the front. I stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Trees stamp set in picked raspberry distress ink and layered the panel on silver foil cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out! There’s nothing like a Christmas card in non-traditional colors!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  3. Your card turned out so pretty! I love the thread behind the poinsettia….I swear I can never get mine to look that good! I think the secret must be to use lots more thread! Thanks so much for playing with us at Make the Cards Challenge!

  5. Leslie, this is gorgeous!! I love the bit of harlequin pattern in the background and that flower is beautiful!! I am a traditional Christmas color type of girl, but every once in a while I do like to make a non-traditional colored card for a bit of fun. Thank you so much for allowing me to be on your design team all these year. I’ve enjoyed it a lot–you’ve been a pleasure to “work” for. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
