All New Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #90 - Use Ribbon or Twine on your card.

Have you discovered the new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge changes yet? Lesley has given it a little bit of a face-lift, and it's own blog. Click here for Challenge #90.

The 4 week  'Animal' card challenge finished with 99 wonderful entries. Congratulations to our four winners and the Honorable Mentions.

I have to admit to being a tad Christmased out but this weeks gorgeous inspiration image soon fired me up again.


When I first saw the inspiration photo, the card that came to mind had a Gift Card holder, with rounded corners and a big red bow. I had just purchased a new DSP pad and it fitted perfectly with the imagined card .  I have used a rolled Voucher rather than a Gift Card in the card holder so that it's background paper can be seen.



Stamps: Kaisercraft Christmas Carol, SSS Christmas 3 x 4
Paper:  Kaisercraft Christmas Cracker (3 patterns), Kaiser craft red
Dies: Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles, Fiskers Border Punch




Do join in this challenge. It's an anything goes Christmas Card using either ribbon or twine. Lots of scope!!

Thanks for dropping in.

How clever Karen. The gift card holder is so adorable with the matching DSP and the ribbon looks wonderful off to the side like that!
