Faux Christmas


Actually been really busy this week making cards etc but haven't had time or the light to get my cards posted. I thought I would multi-task today and get a card that hits three things. I signed up for the Christmas Swap on Docrafters but have not been Christmas orientated this week. As the month is fast running out I thought I had better get a grip.

I found a fantastic sketch to follow on Thesecretcraftsaturdaychallenge and married this with the faux/real stitching challenge on the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge.

So here is the outcome.
As usual at the moment it has a LOTV image on it and I went for the green and red theme taken from the dress.
The poinsettias were punched from an old punch I had and added some holly leaves from the Docrafters stash.

The biggest challenge for me now is to make up a pack of all the bits I used and send them to my swap buddy and see what she does with the materials. We also send our card in a sealed envelope so they can compare when they have finished. I always find it fascinating what people do with the same materials.


  1. What a beautiful card! I really like the image! Thanks for playing with us at Stampin Sisiters in Christ!

  2. What lovely Christmas colors! I am always a fan of plaid in almost any form. Thanks for coming alongside Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week!

  3. What a pretty Christmas card!! Love the plaid and the sweet image. Thanks for joining the STampin Sisters in Christ challenge.
