A Christmas Card for 4 Challenges

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

I made this Christmas card for 4 challenges:

Creative Card Crew Challenge #34: Snowflakes

Our Creative Corner: Create a card or a project inspired by your favorite holiday book or movie.

Incy Wincy Designs Challenge #15: Use your favorite embellishments

Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge SASSC37 : Create a card using the provided sketch:

My all time favorite Christmas movie is White Christmas. I watch it several times during the holiday season. I based my card on this movie and used the red in their outfits at the end of the movie for my color scheme and my snowflakes are from the snow that they finally got at the end of the movie. This is one of the best Christmas movies ever made. If you haven't seen it I really recommend that you do. You won't be disapointed.

So here is the front of my finished card:
I added an extra "gift" to this card by leaving the top of the card open and adding a bookmark as a "hidden gift". So here is a picture of the card with the bookmark out of it. For my favorite embellishments I used gems. I just love using gems. They can take a simple card and dress it up so much
