All is Calm

 All is Calm… All is Bright!

Welcome to another Christmas Card Challenge, this week the challenge is to use something three times.  Please keep in mind that all challenges are optional. The only real rule is that you must create a new Christmas Holiday, Winter or Hanukkah card.

I just love using dies, there are so many companies that now make them – I LOVE them all.  For this card I’m using Memory Box’s ornament die three times.  Originally I had made a different card for this challenge – the card is okay but it just didn’t have the look I was going for.  I’ll show it to you at the end of this post.

Have you started your holiday cards yet?  I can’t believe it is September already, I’m so glad I’ve been making a card each week – my stack is really starting to make a dent for all of the cards I’ll be sending out in December.  Heck, I’ll even be able to start mailing them out in the beginning of December rather than a couple of days before the 25th.

Paper: Sei – This is one of my all-time favorite papers. I have a few tidbits left from last year.  I’ll be sad when my stash is used up.

Dies: Ornament and Frosty Border – Memory Box, Rectangle – Spellbinders

Embellishments: Stickles – On Frosty Border, Ribbon

Sentiment: Digital Sentiment Freebie from me to you

I almost forgot – here’s my first attempt at the challenge, which of the two cards do you prefer?  Let me know, I’d love to hear your opinion!

I hope you join us for our challenge – I can’t wait to see your creations!  Dee

  2. I fell in love with your first image the other day when I saw it and had to visit your blog to see which dies you used. That prejudiced me toward the first. Thanks for sharing it at The Perfect Sentiments Challenge.

  3. Dee, I love both of your cards, but I must say that the top one is breath taking. I love your colors and the simple, elegant design.

    Thanks for joining us in our Christmas challenge at Creative Card Crew.

    I like both of them very much, but if I had to choose
    I think I would go with the top one. the soft teal colour
    is a favourite of mine.
