The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #16 Anything Goes

Good morning! It's time for another Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge and as ever it's Anything Goes.

I have been inspired by the videos of Kristie Marcotte. She takes a pad of 6x6 papers and challenges herself to use the whole lot! This card is not a copy, I hasten to add!! I just wanted to make a card with a simple layout that highlights the patterned paper!

The papers came free with a magazine. The sentiment is from All the Christmas You'll Ever Need by Lil' Inkers, and is gold-embossed. The die-cut mat is from Spellbinders Stately Circles. The ribbon and gems are from stash.

I made 2 other cards with the same papers:

I hope you'll go across to the blog and have a look at my teamies' gorgeous creations and be inspired to make a Christmas card or two!!

Thanks for looking, and have a great week!

love Mags B x

These are fab Mags! That's a tough challenge to use a whole paper pack, I don't think I've managed it very often!

Thankyou for the link to making a bow. She makes it look really easy.
Your Christmas cards certainly make use of the pretty papers. The last one is very striking. Hugs Mrs A.

Great cards, love the idea of using the whole pad, there are always papers I don't like LOL so it would be a real challenge, you have done really well with beautiful cards.
