December 26

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme for the next fortnight is Christmas is Coming - it rather looks like Christmas has been and gone on my card! I have used this fun image called December 26 - he is available as part of the Santa Collection, there are six Santa themed sets for the price of 4 and as you probably know each set consists of one inked stamp, one coloured stamp, one matching paper and one composition.


I have used the composition to create my card, I printed it several times to create some decoupage layers.


I added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the holly, button and stars and used the matching paper to decorate the inside of my card.


Make sure you pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiraiton, we would love for you to join us for our Christmas is Coming Challenge. If you use a Paper Shelter image you could win a $30 Gift Certificate, if you use another image you can win 3 Digis of your choice.

Cute as a Button Challenge 28 - Christmas
CHNC Challenge Extra for November - Anything Christmas Goes
