Addicted to Stamps and More #93

Time for our 'Holiday' challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and time for me to make another Christmas card! You can choose any hols you want to or even something that just reminds you of a holiday.
I have loved for a long time the snowflake stamps and dies from Uniko Studios so was very excited to use these for this challenge. And here is my card:


I had previously made another card for this challenge but changed my mind when I saw this photo at Festive Friday Challenge


The wood grain and red star inspired me immediately. I love the look of white card stock embossed with wood grain and that big red star inspired me to die cut my large snowflake die with glitter red card. I added the simple small sentiment not to distract from the snowflake and also as I thought this would be great for the 'Bright Sparks' challenge at Keep it Simple.

This week our DT have got some fab projects to inspire you and we are sponsored by A Random Fan-you could win 3 of their very cool digis!

I will also enter this into the 'glitter stash' challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and the 'Sparkle and Shimmer' challenge at CAS on Sunday

Marina my DT teamie at Inkspirational has challenges herself to make one Christmas card per week and asks us to join in and link up and I finally have a card to add to her fun!

Now it is your time to play along and have some fun x

  10. At last you've come to my lair! I love the snowflake in red - I'd have never thought of that and gone for predictable white or blue. It looks stunning against the the white woodgrain. Thanks a lot for joining in with my Festive 48. Hope you can link up again next week!

  12. woo hoo, very nice! I really liked your other card too (even though it wasn't centered very well chuckle chuckle). LOVE the glittery snowflake and with the background of the wood grain... yummo! Still missing me?

    PS - I had to snort at the comment that you left on Deborah's card. Lucky I wasn't taking a sip of tea or coke or something... It would have gone everywhere. Cheeky monkey ;)
