WaltzingMouse Christmas Card Challenge June -2012

Just for fun

I can't believe I have been making cards for this challenge for six month and I have quite the collection of wonderful Waltzingmouse Christmas cards ready for the holidays.  This month's challenge was to add stitching to your card, and it could be any type of stitching, hand, machine or faux, and since I was using WMS Sewing Box Christmas set, why add the real deal when my holly leaves have beautiful stamped stitching on them.  I pulled out my drawer of paper scrapes and found this striped paper and thought green and purple would make a fun holly day card...add a bit of bling and I was done.  Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. It's fabulous!!
    I love cards that don't have the traditional Christmas colors...
    and these are gorgeous!! :)

  2. This is so pretty. I think purple and green are one of my favorite colors together. Your trio of leaves is so sweet, and I love how you also have a trio of buttons with twine. Good to see you using patterned paper--I have 4 pads of 'wallpaper' that just arrived today.

  3. Such a great colour combo Kim and a really lovely Christmas card. Love that patterned paper.

  4. This is totally funky and fantastic for a Christmas card, Kim! And I really love how you did the layout! Pinned!

  5. Sweet card--I love the non-traditional colors! It's a perfect card that could be sent to anyone during the holiday season!

  6. I love these colors for a Christmas card, Kim! They are so pretty, and the large holly leaf is the perfect focal point :)

  7. Hi Kim! Yeah! another card down! Glad you are keeping up with the challenges - I'm behind!!! (yes again!) Love the lavender and green colors - the butons really bring out the color - really pretty!
