I can't believe it..I never make Christmas cards before late November, but todays challenge on Daring Card Makers was to do just that!
Here's the challenge: So, we'd like you to make and show a Christmas card which,incorporates the following: Some Paper Tearing,The colour Purple AND It has to have at least one hole somewhere in the design!

I knew I wasn't mad designing Christmas papers in purple and lilac I knew they would come in handy one day! I am not altogether happy with the scan of this card it really needs to be photographed as you can't see the sparkles etc..but I bought an all new, singing and dancing camera a week ago but I still can't get it to work yet!! I have to set some time aside to get it sorted..when I do I will take better photos of this card but until then you have to imagine that it does actually look better than this!!



The papers used are all from my Christmas themed CD Yule Be Funky The sentiment is one I bought last year which is cute as it is silver embossed writing on a foam pad which gives it real texture. I added a piece of shaped purple wire which took me a while to get in a smooth curl but I love messing with wire it's just attaching it to the cards that's the hard part!! The extra snow flakes are cut with a punch I have had since I started card making and had forgotten all about and found hiding in the back of a drawer!!

I have just had a delivery of stash arrive so I am all excited about my new goodies! I have bought a mini craft sewing machine so expect to see more stitching from me in the future..but if it's anything like the camera..you might have to wait a while!!

  13. Lovely card. Good luck with the camera - if it's a point and shoot, why don't they just do what it says on the box!?
