Winter wonderland–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you’ve had a good week so far, mine hasn’t been great but I can’t go into details – suffice to say I’ll be glad when it’s over!!  I’m here this morning to share my DT card for this week’s winter wonderland challenge and I have the honour of setting the theme this week.  I decided to challenge myself and choose a theme that is the complete opposite of most of my cards – therefore the theme this week is “clean & simple Christmas card”.  Here is my card:

WW #19 - CAS Christmas card

WW #19 - Christmas card (close up)

I have used a super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Hattie & Buddy’ and coloured it with promarkers and flex markers.  I haven’t used any patterned paper only plain cardstock for matting and I crimped the base card for a bit of added interest.  I only added some twine and a punched snowflake and I was done.  I have to say that I really like this card, even though it is so different to my normal cards, but it does look ten times better IRL – honest!

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and one lucky winner will receive a $15.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store (p&p not included).


The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.

Digital Tuesday challenge – buttons and/or twine

Party time Tuesday challenge – anything goes

Scrap creations challenge – digi image/paper
