SVG Cutting Files & 52 Christmas Card Challenge

Happy Sunday Everyone!!  I hope everyone has had a restful fun filled weekend!

This week’s challenge over at 52 Christmas card throwdown is a color challenge; 3 shades of blue.  I will also be entering this card and another project into the SVG Cutting file challenges that ends on the 14th; anything Christmas.

As always I am using Jaded Blossom & SVG Cutting files products.  I used the SVG Cutting File Snowman Slider Card and I resized it to 80% twice.  This is so I could use it to fit on a standard A2 card (and use the Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies)

I have used the following Jaded Blossom products:

SVG cutting files Snowman Slider Card
JB Card Mat Dies
JB Flag Die
JB Winter Wishes stamp set
JB Christmas Wishes stamp set
Peachy Keen –Kawaii Faces @ 1”
Stampin’ up Night of Navy ink
Paper from my stash

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge

Friday is here!  Hello and I hope everyone is having a craftasticable day!  I am so excited that this is my third post this week. 

My "adopted" Grammy, who lives in a care home, loves to send greeting cards. It is a way for her to feel connected to others and brings joy to the card recipients. I love to make cards and have offered to be her "supplier"....of greeting cards :) Everyone wins in this situation--Grammy stays in touch and reaches out to others, I have even more of an incentive to participate in challenges and grow as a paper crafter, and card recipients are blessed with a personalized gift. 

As always I am using Jaded Blossom products.  Here is my first Christmas card of 2015  that i am entering into the first challenge of the year over at 52 Christmas Card Challenge.  (drum roll please, hehehe)

Of course a close up.  I love how this snowflakes stamps!

I have used the following Jaded Blossom products:

Candy Wrap Dies – Sentiment
Elegant Holiday Greetings – snow flake and sentiment
Stampin’ up Pacific Point ink & paper
Doodle Bug Sequins
Rhinestones from my stash
Thank you for stopping by
