Christmas Card Throwdown

Christmas Card Throwdown

Sunday, 18 February 2018


Hi there everyone, hope it will be a good day for you!!  Here is a card I made to enter into  It is challenge 373 and is anything goes as long as it's Christmas with an optional theme: use some green.

I made this card as an iris folding piece and used dark cream paper for the topper and dry embossed with an embossing folder from a free gift from a magazine from Practical Publishing in the UK.  I can't remember the name of the magazine because it is a long time ago since I bought it.   The embossinng folder  is a mistletoe design, and the green mistletoe at the top of the santa is cut with a die that came with the same free gift. I used white and red paper to make the santa and used silver for the top of the ornament, and used a Tim Holtz distress pen to mark the red holly and the red bow and star are very old and came out of my stash and I used a clear rhinestone at the top for the hanger.    I hope you like this as well as I do, I haven't done any iris folding for a long while so enjoyed making this card.   I am also entering this card in the Hawkesbury Agricultural Show in April.    Thanks for visiting, cheers, Jasann
