Christmas Down Under *WIN A CARD*

Well, there’s a reason for that title. See, I had this SU paper that when you brayer it with ink, you can wipe off the ink and the pattern stays white. Totally awesome stuff. Well, I saw words on it, but couldn’t read them. I figured they’d be French or something, so I decided to chance it. It turned out to be lines from Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. So… I had to figure out how on earth I could justify something from mid summer on a Christmas card. Well, I think my Australian friends are a perfect excuse!

This was for the Gina K “Non Traditional Christmas Colors” challenge. Well, I TRIED to use Gina K Stamps, but since I only own one set that is NOT Christmas, I was forced to use another stamp company’s sentiment. This was for the “unusual Christmas colors” challenge. I went with black, white, and silver.


Stamps: Gina K “Hope Grows”, SU Christmas Punch
Paper: PTI True Black, SU White on whiteness, Vellum, PTI White
Accessories: Walmart ribbon
Tools: Martha Stewart lace edge punch, Sizzix Noel label embosslitz, SU Embossing folder, Big Shot, Embossing powder, heat tool.
Adhesive: ATG tape:  SU Dimensionals

Again, since this isn’t a sketch challenge, I thought I’d give one of these puppies away.  So, leave a comment and tell me if it looks even remotely Christmasish and you’ll be entered to win.  I’ll draw sometime before Wednesday.

  1. If you didn’t have the text on it, it would look like a very elegant wedding card. With the text, it’s just fine as a Christmas card!

  3. I’m glad I read your comments—-on my screen it looks blue (navy and light). Hmmmm. In black and white and silver, it would make a great Christmas card for newlywed’s??????

  4. It is quite beautiful, I would think it a wedding card too if not for the wording.

    Tell me, how long does it take for you to create such a masterpiece!!??!?!

    • To be honest, it’s hard to know. I know I make them in anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour, but I always make two at once and sometimes I make an element that I don’t use so that can make it even longer but cut down the time on another card. It’s fun though!
