It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC696) this week! And we’re headed to the land down under w/ a site of fab scenery & colorful beach towels. I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I really liked the black & white pattern w/ just the addition of a green leaf.

 

To make my card, I die cut the wavy frame out of white & again out of the black & white patterned paper then put back the inserts as you see. I had a sponged piece of paper left from last week’s card (here), so I used it to die cut leaves, the larger frame & the Smile word.

Here’s the inside:

Welcome to April & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my Christmas Wishes card, I used an embossing folder on the white bg, then paper pieced some strips for a faux woven bg. I used part of a box of Christmas cards I bought that are supposed to have a picture inserted so the entire back is 5×7 piece of this heavy weight Christmas print w/ little red foil accents. After I glued them, I embossed it all again.  The rest was just die cutting the holly out of green glitter card, the Wishes & backing oval out of red glitter card, then attaching a red foil frame over the bg. 

Here’s the inside.

I made these for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club July Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.

To make my card, I die cut the Merry Christmas once in white & once in red then pieced the red parts into the white outline. The solid mittens were die cut in white & the toppers were cut once in red & again in black & pieced. I die cut the wonky square then used the smaller size to cut the middle out & make a frame. The black print is part of a folded card. I bought the box of printed cards a long while back & I’ve used them more as papers on another card than as cards themselves. The red polka dot print is part of a Pebbles pad.

Here’s a look at the inside using a couple of old PSX images.
