I have always been a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas cards but with so many to recycle I am becoming more of a fan with regard to contemporary designs and colours.
This is one of the recent cards I cam up with in response to the bingo challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges I chose Glitter, Blue and Ribbon as my three design elements.
I found this contemporary image and mounted it onto a lovely ice blue glitter paper that was part of a prize I won for being chosen as the star letter in Papercraft Inspirations magazine in the February issue, I added a Bow that had been made from several off cuts of blue organza ribbon and secured this with a brad and mounted it onto white gauze and fixed it to a length of ribbon wrapped round the glitter paper.
I am entering this into the following challenge

- I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. In 2011 I completed my certificate in papercrafting as a result of the work I did as part of the course I started entering challenges on line and in magazines. I applied for design teams and also started making samples for Ooh La La Creations for their shows on Create and Craft. I have now completed my Diploma in professional crafting and most recently been runner up in the Papercrafter of the Year 2013 a competition run by Papercraft essentials magazine, I don't have a particular style I like to use elements from lots of styles and techniques, although I do love all things vintage. In 2014 I started to move more towards scrapbooking to take care of the huge family archive of photographs that were stored in my attic. I have continued cardmaking and Scrapbooking through 2015 and 2016 but have also become interested in off the page projects. I hope to be able focus on these in the future.
