Dream Valley DT Challenge #97 Christmas.

This is our last Challenge of the year at Dream Valley - you have four weeks to join in! We have a wonderful list of our amazing sponsors, too many to list here, but go over to The Blog and see what amazing prizes are on offer!

My Christmas card uses items from two of the sponsors - Freckled Fawn and My Mum's Craft Shop

I used the second largest of the Die-namics Star Stax to die-cut a star, and stamped 'NOEL' in Mustard Seed ink using an alphabet set by Lawn Fawn then sponged over in Scattered Straw DI. I went over it with a Clear Wink of Stella pen. The idea came from a class I took at Online Card Classes

The sentiment is from the Avery Elle 'Noel' stamp set and is gold embossed, and I used tiny stamps in Mama Elephant inks (Rainwater and Winter) to stamp on the base card.

The Freckled Fawn Washi Tape comes from various of their monthly kits. I stuck them at an angle on a piece of scrap card and added it with foam tape. Then I added the star and a few sequins.

I'm quite pleased with this!

If you're having a last-minute burst of Christmas card making, do go over and join in our Challenge! there's plenty of inspiration for you there!

Thanks for looking!

Love your card Mags. The washi tape works so well! Gorgeous details on the star and backing paper. So sad to read in your post above about Wee Stamps closing! I LOVE those stamps. This is becoming a real travesty for the stamps businesses! So sad to be waving goodbye to you as my DT sister. I hope you'll still come and visit me. Wishing you a joyful Christmas. Hugs, Wends x
