Homemade Greeting Card: Non-Traditional Christmas Card

WOW! I am so excited about this card. For those of you that have been following my blog, you know that I’m not big on making greeting cards. I decided to give it a shot this week because I needed to play around for a design for my yearly Christmas invitations to the family Christmas party. This card turned out beautifully.


Isn’t this card just absolutely gorgeous. I’m pretty partial to this card, I think I may use this because of the lovely shade of pink underneath with the hint of gold – the gold makes everything pop! The bottom of the white is a lace looking Christmas punch made by Martha Stewart. The background is made with the a cuttlebug background as well as the flower and sentiment.

This card came together without any difficulty and I am so excited! I will be entering this blog into the following blog challenges for the week.

CCEE Stampers – Challenge using two die cuts or punches

Charisma Cards – Lace and Pearls

Coulor Create – Challenge with the color white, pink and gold

Crop Stop – A mostly white card or scrapbook layout

Lollipop – Challenge using embossed images and no designer paper

Delightful Sketches – This was a bingo like challenge where you have to choose three things from the bingo board. I chose a dimensional aspect, lace and glitter or sparkle.

Pink Elephant – Embossed challenge

Shabby Tea Room – Pastel colors

My Time to Craft – 2 of something on a layout or card
