12 Days of Christmas - Post #10



I am participating in Jingle Belles Pink Christmas Card Challenge.

This Pink Challenge ends today, so this will be my last Pink Christmas card done for a cause.

To make this card, I used Close to My Heart's Brushed Paper Packet with CTMH's Cranberry, Hollyhock, White Daisy & Pixie cardstocks.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH's Dot Embossing Folder and CTMH Pink Sparkles (discontinued).

I used CTMH's Home for the Holidays - October Stamp of the Month, Snowhaven Card Making Workshop and Merriest Christmas stamp sets with CTMH Cranberry ink.

The "Pink Christmas" Card Challenge will run on Jingle Belles Blog from 12 a.m. on Friday, October 10th to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 22nd. As in previous years, Stephanie and Lauren pledge to donate $4 per linked-up card to The Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The only requirement is that all link-ups be NEW Holiday Cards with some noticeable pink on them...so in other words, not just Rudolph's Nose, lol!

Participants may use sketches, combine challenges and include any other colours in addition to PINK. You can showcase however many cards you'd like in one post, don't worry, they'll still count every single one of them towards the total.

Don't forget...you can play along with Jingle Belles Pink Christmas Card Challenge too! Here is their link: http://jinglebellesrock.blogspot.ca/.

12 Days of Christmas - Post #7



I am participating in Jingle Belles Pink Christmas Card Challenge.

To make this gift card tag, I used Close to My Heart's Cotton Candy & White Daisy cardstocks.

To embellish the gift tag, I used CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut out the card base at 2 1/4 inch & the white tag at 2 inches, the twine is from my stash and I used an EK Success 1 1/8 inch punch to punch out the "until 25".

I used CTMH's Home for the Holidays - October Stamp of the Month, Magical Moment (24), Fill in the Blank - Holiday (until & love), Merriest Christmas (inside sentiment) and Holiday Tags (To:) with CTMH's Cranberry and Cotton Candy inks. 

Christmas Eve is spent at my grandparents' place and with my mom's side of the family. We do our gift exchange that night and I have 5 young ladies (my teenage cousins) that I buy for and so I have made five of these tags for their gifts.

The "Pink Christmas" Card Challenge will run on Jingle Belles Blog from 12 a.m. on Friday, October 10th to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 22nd. As in previous years, Stephanie and Lauren pledge to donate $4 per linked-up card to The Susan G. Komen Foundation.
