The 1st challenge is from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and their challenge was to use Red and Metallic Gold. I thought this colour challenge would be perfect for a new Memory Box Die that I bought recently while on a weekend getaway with my hubby. I stopped in at Scrappin Great Deals in Komoka (Kilworth). I bought the Memory Box Die - Glowing Candles (along with some other goodies).
The 2nd challenge is from Jingle Belles and their challenge is Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe:
Without further ado, here is my card:
I cut the die twice - 1st with the green card stock and then with the gold glitter paper. I cut out the candles of the green die cut and then layered it over the gold glittered die cut. I also added some copper coloured rhinestones for some added bling. I embossed the red card base with a Nellie Snellen embossing folder - Oval Frame 1. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the embossing folder was just a wee bit bigger than my card base. Oh well! We can't all expect to have every one of our cards turn out perfect, now can we? All in all I'm quite pleased with this card.
Thanks for stopping by!
