Time To Start working on the Christmas Cards for 2015

It's a New Year - so a good time to get started on the Christmas Cards for this year and avoid the last minute panic.  And to help you we have a monthly challenge at CHNC Extra.  The challenge for January is now live.

Here is a card I created for inspiration:



I used Fancy Sunbonnet - Christmas tree from Bugaboo Stamps.


Head on over to CHNC Extra for January to see some more inspirational cards!

January is also a special month for Bugaboo Stamps as it celebrates it's 5th Birthday.  There will be a week long celebration from January 17th through January 23rd.



As well as the digi image from Bugaboo Stamps I have used some striped Christmas paper from DCWV.  I added some red and white lace.  Colouring of the image is with copic markers with the addition of Stickles - Gold.  I also added some faux stitching with a Distress Marker.  As a finishing touch, I added three glitter domes to the lower left.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

  1. Hi Suzi,
    Love the image and you have certainly made it very festive with the glitter. I am still finding it a bit hard to think Christmas this early.
