Crafty Cardmakers Mega Xmas Challenge - DT Card

Hi everyone,
For the end of the year challenge at Crafty Cardmakers, you have to show your first ever card and also your last card. As this challenge lasts for 4 weeks there are lots of fab prizes up for grabs :O)

Here is the first card that I ever made,OMG how embarrasing lol. My mindframe was obviously just "stickers and a strip of paper and Bobs your uncle" haha. This was 2 years ago.




And this is the last card that I have made, my last Christmas card...so i thought lol until I got an order for 10 more :o( The stamp is from Kanban and the papers are from one of last years Papermania collection. I have used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and also a Papermania Punch for the 2nd layer of the snowflake.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 35 DT Card

Hi everyone!
Hope the snow is not causing anyone to much trouble :O) Still no snow here, I don't know if I'm sad about that or glad lol

This week the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is White with a Splash..... here is my DT card.


For my card I have used a Kanban stamp for both the image and the sentiment. I have watercoloured the poppys.I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the background (swiss dots folder) Then I used lots of layers of red card and white pearl card. I finished it with an organza bow on the side, I have added stickles to the ends of the ribbon to stop it fraying and add a little bit of sparkle :o)
