Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas!

Good morning and Happy Sunday! Once again, it is too cold to go snowboarding, so I am in my craft room! (The temp is -27 C, but feels like -36 C with the wind!)

The new challenge at Christmas Card challenges is to CASE a card from a Design Team member. The above card was CASEd from this fun card below, made by Pat (see this post) for the colour scheme! I love combined black with traditional (and sometimes non-traditional) Christmas colours! I also used a recent sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Like I said, I have not yet managed to put away the burlap, so here it is again! I will share once again at City Crafter for their Burlap Love challenge - hope it is okay to enter a few times!

So glad you stopped by!

What I used:
burlap and twine
tag from a cute Walmart set picked up by my Ma during the Boxing Day sales - they came in a little clear paint can!
main patterned paper by Little Yellow Bicycle "Making Merry"
other papers from scrap bin
Sizzix embossing folder 


  1. I love burlap, so I'm glad you didn't put it away yet. Beautiful card...embossing, colors, etc. Love that tag also. Great find!! Thanks for joining us this week at Christmas Card Challenges.

  2. I absolutely love the combination of the embossed background, the twine and the burlap. Also, the vibrant colors in your patterned paper add the perfect touch of color. This is a beautiful card.

  3. What a bright and cheerful Christmas card Shanna and I think you burlap adds great texture.
    Thanks for sharing with us at Christmas Card Challenges, and I hope you will join us again soon.
