Challenge 1 was to make a card or project with an image of a something you'd bundle up with....scarf, hats, mittens, sweater, blanket, etc.....AND to make it warm and cozy....... incorporate felt into your project. I didn't actually think I had any stamp with gloves or hats etc on, but then I found these gloves on my new Tremendous Treats set! But I couldn't find my snowflake dies anywhere! I have a Sizzix set and hunted high and low but they do not want to be found, so I had to stamp a snowflake from the same set on the reverse of the felt and cut it out! I have since been to the local craft store and bought some new dies! This card is also for SC358 for the sketch and Papertake Weekly's Christmas Challenge.
Challenge 2 was to make an all white card. I really struggle with doing these so I did add a bit of silver to it, but it's mostly white. I also used old Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #109 for the layout.
And Challenge #3 was to make a card inspired by your favourite Christmas song. Mine is Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl. This is a hard song to turn into a card, but follow me carefully. The song is about Christmas in New York. In New York, in the Rockefellar Plaza they always have a HUGE Christmas tree, decorated in the most gorgeous lights ever, so I made a huge tree with lots of lights! Got it?! This card is also for Color Throwdown's Challenge #167 to use Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party and for Cupcake Craft Challenge #167 to use papers with text on.
