The 12 Crafts of Christmas, Day Three

Believe it or not, I made three versions of this card, and this is the one I like the best.


I didn't entirely think this card out, didn't plan it through like I normally would've.  I think maybe that was good though.  Usually I buy something and I know exactly what I wanna do, but this card had a mind of its own.  It was never supposed to have a green base, but I couldn't get any other cardstock in the right weight and quantity.  I wanted to only go silver but the gold helped tie in the green card.  It was just a series of ideas versus one general idea.  But I love it.

I'm of course entering some challenges:



Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!

  5. I think the green card works really well and love the dies. I am glad to find someone else who has cards taking over making themselves as it happens to me a lot. Thanks for entering CHNC Christmas extra 2.
