Christmas in July challenge 1

So I have been neglecting making Christmas cards so far this year as I no longer could commit to CHNC and pulled out of the DT, so decided to boost my supplies for this year with a little Christmas in July challenge.

I looked around blogland in advance and couldn’t see any being advertised so I making my own challenge up instead. I’m not doing a daily challenge… just setting myself 12 themes and in some cases will make multiple cards for the theme. I am also aiming to use all existing supplies… no new purchases to do this! After all I have six zillion Christmas supplies!

So here goes… theme 1 … CASE a non- Christmas card to make a Christmas card

OK this one is easy… I am slightly obsessed with a card that Martin from Martin’s Mayhem made … so that was my inspiration. I grabbed VERY old Papermania papers to mainly make up these cards. I then took the card making on a slightly different twist by adding stencilling in the background and twisting the layout…. but I think the inspiration from Martin’s card is still fairly evident.

So super old stash used… and CASE of a non Christmas card achieved.

Check back in a couple of days to see what the next challenge… and if you want to join in feel free and just let me know so I can come and see what you made!

Happy crafting!

Catherine
