One of my cards won a challenge this week – my Barrel of Monkeys Christmas Card. This was my second win at Just Add Ink and I was really thrilled.  It’s so much fun to play along with challenges, you should give it a try.
Well I found a new site this week called SU-Only Challenges.  Their design team has come up with some gorgeous creations, follow the link and take a look.  This weeks challenge is to create a clean and simple Christmas card and this is what I came up with. 

Picture 096

It is very clean and simple.                                                                   No ribbon, no “extras”!                                                                         Just the square punch, 1 colour (NQN) for the images and another (crumb cake) for sponging the edges and that’s pretty much it.
Stampin Up sell square envelopes now, yippee!! They measure 14x14cm. so I bought some and made this card to fit.  The envelopes are beautiful and I can stamp on them too to make the card seem even more special.

Ingredients  :
Stamps : Winter Post, Elements of style
Card : crumb cake, very vanilla, NQN
Ink : NQN, crumb cake
Other : square punch, big shot, timeless type junior alphabet

It’s time now to write on all of these Christmas cards I’ve made and actually get them posted!
