Joan's Final Weekly Challenge for this Year


This will be the final challenge for 2011 at Joan's Gardens and she has made it an easy one - make a quick Christmas card.  I know it looks like I did a lot on my card but really it went together very fast.  The reason it was simple is because I went through a box I tossed extra die cuts that I did not use for one reason or another. Do you do that?    I pulled out a few die cuts and just started gluing them to my card.  I had the punched Martha Stewart background but did have to emboss the white piece behind the scene with the Cuttlebug "Swiss Dot" embossing folder.  Then all the other pieces were just attached either with pop dots or glue.  Glitter was added to the snowflake, and top border and a little on the church scene, the sleigh, and reindeer.  Polar White Flower Soft was glued along the bottom.  

I hope you will go over and enter a card in Joan's Weekly Challenge this week.  It always makes us happy to see all your work.  You can see Joan's beautiful card and  read all the details about this challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This will be the last week for a chance to win a prize and be entered into the drawing for the $100 Gift Certificate to Joan's Gardens.  She will be drawing that lucky name after this challenge is over.  I'll be looking forward to seeing your quick and easy Christmas card -- lets see if we can beat the number of entries we had last week.   

All the Cheery Lynn and Marianne Design dies I used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens

Selma, another gorgeous card. You "stash" drawer has been an influence on me....I now have one too and you are right, it is nice to pull something out of the drawer when you are in a hurry. Great job!

It's just beautiful and no one will know it's from 'tossed' die cuts... except all us...lol. I do keep my un-used die cuts too. Sometimes I have an idea but when laying it all out, it just doesnt look right and a die cut or a stamped image doesnt get used... and I just cant throw them away! Happy you got to use some of yours up!! Beautiful card!

Another beautiful card, Selma! Great job!
