Christmas Card Challenges: Photo Inspiration

Happy Sunday, crafty friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! I’m finishing up a fun weekend with some of my friends. It’s so funny how you wait and wait for something you’re looking forward to, and then it’s over before you know it!

This week’s Christmas Card Challenge is inspired by this photo:



Here’s my card:



I decided to keep the overall design fairly simple. I stamped an ornament image from Gourmet Rubber Stamps three times in different spots and then used a ruler and a Copic multiliner to extend the “string” to the top of the card stock.

After coloring the ornaments, I added a layer of Stickles. When that dried, I followed up with a layer of Glossy Accents.

Although all of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on the CCC blog so we can stop by and leave you some lovely comments!

We also don’t require that you use Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps on your cards, but if you have them, we’d love to see you ink them up when you play along!

Don’t forget to visit the rest of the CCC team to take a peek at the beautiful cards they’ve created this week: AlannaBrigitteCandaceCorinneDeeKatieLeesaMargoMichelePat, and Stephanie…and our guest designer, Natali!
