DeNami Design Theme Challenge #4

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Happy Sunday! Today I have a card to share for the current DeNami Design Theme Challenge: CHRISTMAS!! I've been busy making Halloween cards lately, and haven't made Christmas cards yet...until now. I just can't even believe November is just around the corner.

Here is the card! I used the Curly Garland Border (one of my favorites because it's so versatile), and stamped it twice to form the shape of a Christmas tree. I have to give major credit to my Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment! ;) I used the little bursts from the Petit Fours Party Time set to be the tree's kinda hard to see because of the yellow color on the vanilla cardstock. At the bottom, I used the present from the same set. To add some more interest, I used red and green Stickles as ornaments, and gold for the topper and presents. The edge of the red cardstock was punched using my new EK Success edger punch called jewel. More bling was added to the edge with dots of green Stickles!

So what do you all think?! I would love to hear your feedback! I am thinking of doing something a bit different this year for my Christmas cards. I've always just designed one layout and sent everyone the same card. But I would love to play around and make 5 or 6 different ones to keep it interesting. I might even do another variation of this card. I'll be sure to post them all :-) ***SO GLAD YOU STOPPED BY!***

  1. What a clever way to use the Curly Garland Border! Very fun and glitzy card-love that!

  2. I can't believe you made a tree out of that curly border! That's such a great idea! I also love the border punch, and the Stickles are perfect! Aren't they so much fun to use? Keep up the great work!

  3. This card is super duper creative, Nicki! Never in a million years would I have thought of using the Curly Garland Border to make a tree- a super cute one at that! Love how you added the presents at the bottom; perfect addition to the card!

    Thanks for joining us in the DeNami challenge!

  4. Nicki, this card is so pretty. All of the glitter is so fun and festive. And I just adore how you made the tree with the border stamp. SO creative! Great work! :)
