For today’s Free For All Challenge (F4A145), we are to use fruits or veggies or colors of fruits or veggies. So ok, this may be stretching things a tad, but pine cones are fruits and so are the holly berries. Or I guess I could go w/ the colors rhubarb and celery. Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it because I really need to make some more Christmas cards.
The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs and are a mix of new and older and I pretty much gold embossed everything except the background. The chickadee image is from the new Chickadee Ornament and since I wanted to put it on my wreath, I fussy cut it out. The Apple Wreath (minus the apples) was embossed on a die cut circle. The pine cones (from Sing for Joy), were also embossed and fussy cut. I attached my wreath on top of a Wood Background I stamped w/ the sand ink. The greeting (from Christmas Flourished Verses) was die cut w/ a tag die. A bow and some designer paper finished my 4.25 x 5.50 card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a fun challenge today on Splitcoast! Use bleach (WT403)!! I love painting & stamping w/ bleach. This time I stamped the Candles Galore on the brick red panel on the left w/ bleach. The white panel on the right. I inked the brick embossing folder w/ desert sand ink before embossing the panel. The Holiday fireplace was die cut w/ labels 2 and colored w/ copics.

This is a fairly quick and simple Christmas card. I really need to finish making a bunch more so this one more for the stack. The image is from Our Daily Bread designs. The greeting was stamped, die cut and sponged. The white bg was punched all over w/ a lg snowflake punch then attached behind a die cut red frame. I put some tan c/s behind the snowflakes so it wouldn’t be too busy then attached it to a piece of Christmas paper. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
