Christmas Card Club Challenge #10 Base Your Card on a Christmas Carol

Hi Crafters,

We're another week closer to Christmas and I have created more cards for my Christmas card box thanks to our fabulous little challenge every fortnight.

This week Christine would like us to base our card on a Christmas Carol and here's mine...

'The First Noel'

Image - Woodware Stamp - Noel Tags
Various Christmas papers from stash
Distress Inking for backgrounds
Card Candy


I've created three variations using this lovely Woodware stamp, inking the backgrounds and then stamping and heat embossing the stamped image for more definition. I then stamped the images again, cut out and popped them up with foam squares for a subtle 3D effect.
I hope you like them.


Challenges I'd like to enter:
Winter Wonderland - Use your Favourite Christmas Colour Combo (Red & Green)
CHNC Extra - May Christmas Challenge
One Crazy Stamper - May Challenge - ATG
Sweet Stampin' Christmas - ATG Christmas


Thanks for visiting today, I really appreciate the time taken to look and comment here.
