Image result for christmas in my heart dickens 

To me, Christmas is all about home. 

 Love how this turned out.  The resin wreath was just the right size for this A2 card, and the gold brad made a perfect doorknob!!  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By through January 3, 2018!!

Addicted to Clean and Simple's code word is SPARKLE. 
And Creative With Stamps has a Reindeer Challenge!

I needed a few masculine Christmas cards.  I like the contrast between the black and the gold glitter paper and heat embossing, but my husband says it's ugly.  Since he rarely criticizes my creations, I am a bit insecure about it, but I am posting anyway :). 
Recollections glitter paper and die cut layered with black linen texture paper. Check back on Wednesday for our next Words to Craft By challenge!!

Lot's of fun challenges out there right now.  Good thing, because I thought I had enough Christmas cards made, but I didn't keep track, and I am now scrambling.

Easel Card

The Try Stamping on Tuesday challenge looks like this:
with Optional Themes: Easel Card and/or Silver Bells.  Well, I managed the easel part!

The snowman is a layering stamp from Stamplistic, snowflakes from Lawn Fawn die, the Clearly Defined sentiment heat embossed in white.  I started adding the crystals around the snowman before I realized how many I needed!  Looks great, but I don't think I will make many of these!!

Metallic Christmas

The Jingle Belles challenge is Baby It's Gold.  I love using metallic papers, but hate photographing them!
The tree is cut from holographic paper and layered on red metallic paper.  The corners are a happy accident.  I thought it was a regular corner punch, but it was a photo corner punch.  I like it, though!

Color Throwdown #471

This week's challenge at the Color Throwdown looks like this: 

Here is my version:
The ornament is attached with removable adhesive for the recipient to hang on their tree.  The grey background and the nativity are metallic, the white background is embossed with a Darice Scroll Flourish folder.
