Brand New Challenge from Sunny Challenges and Creations

 Here we are into week 4 of  Sunny Challenges and Creations.  Kris Vicky and I hope you will play along with us this week. The challenge this week is to create a card using the sketch on the left, but you  must  use  at least one embossing folder, and the theme is Christmas. You can use any or even no stamp set, as long as the finished creation is of a Christmas theme. That gives everyone a really wide scope, to put forward some beautiful entries. For my card I used Real Red cardstock, which I ran through the Big Shot using the Framed Tulips embossing folder. I then cut panels from the Holly Jolly Designer Paper and topped that with some Whisper White that was also run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I had a scrap of Real Red cardstock on my desk and had punched out the Lace Border, so I put it on top of the Whisper White (which I know has covered the polka dots) and I really like the look of it. The stamp set I used was Contemp Christmas. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red and the tree was stamped onto a  white medium oval in Old Olive.I matted this onto an Old Olive small scallop oval (not SU). I think you will have a lot of fun playing with the sketch this week, so dont forget to go to Sunny Challenges and enter your creations. I really like how my card turned out and I would love to hear what you think too. Bye for now


  1. Like the result of your card Gwen. I would never have thought to use the new punch the way you did & I can just see the little dots poking out behind the lace.

  2. Love your Christmas card - especially the embossing and the use of the scallop dotted ribbon punch. A very unique approach
