Christmas Card Club Challenge 2016 #1 - Festive Food

Hi Crafters,

Just popping in quickly to share my Christmas Card Club card for the first of our challenges of 2016.
I'm a day early as usual, I have another DT card to share for tomorrow.

This first challenge is hosted by Margaret our marvellous coordinator and she has chosen 'Festive Food'.

Recipe

Image - Card Making Downloads - 'Too Much To Eat'
Fine Glitter

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafting From The Heart - #93 ATG
TTCRD - ATG
Brown Sugar - #180 ATG
Creative Fingers - #100 ATG
Not Just Cards - #28 ATG

This was a quick make using a downloadable image which I printed a couple of times and raised the circular image and holly leaves on 3D foam but it's still flat enough for posting.  A lot of my customers asked for flat cards last year and so moving forwards in to 2016 I think most of my creations will have to be on the skinny side.

Well that's all from me, take care,

Lorraine

I bet a lot of people were able to relate to this over the festive season! Super card with a really cute image. Hugs Christine xx

Ha ha, I felt a lot like this over the Christmas period! It's a brilliant image and the colours are fab. I agree that people want flat cards for Christmas and the little bit of dimension you added is just perfect...plus the gorgeous sparkle!
Big hugs, Kat xx

This is such a beautiful card! Love that image and your bit of 3D.I agree with you about most cards needing to be slimmer now. With postal rates rising all the time, it is nice to have a card fit regular postage rates!

Fab card! I find flat cards very difficult, I've made a few to post, but generally I make what I enjoy and that...like me...is not skinny lol xx
