Christmas Blessings

It's time for some mid challenge inspiration over at the Polkdadoodles Craft Challenge blog, the theme for this fortnight is Xmas Red/Green but you can also enter an Anything Goes project.  I have used the fabulous new Festive Christmas CD to create my rustic Christmas card.


The Gingerbread people, the papers and the sentiment all come from the Festive Christmas CD.  I fussy cut the Gingerbread people and added lots of Distress ink.


I have also used the fabulous new Bubbleicious Frame die, have you seen them in the Polkadoodles Craft Store - they cut like a treat and pop straight out of the die.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge 167 - Cute + A Sentiment
Crimbo Crackers Challenge 118 - Die Cuts
WordArt Wednesdays Weeks 254/255 - Anything Goes

Make sure you pop over to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes challenge, you might like to join the DT and follow the optional Xmas Red/Green theme.  If you need some more inspiration you might like to take a look at our Facebook page.

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.

So cute! Love that pretty die and the sweet little gingerbread folks. The paper design looks quite like corrugated paper at first. The sepia tones of the card look very 'vintage' - and the darker red shade of Ms. Gingerbread's dress fits perfectly. TFS
