Are you ready for another edition of the 12 Kits of Christmas?Just to refresh your memory, this is a group of 12 designers. Each has been assigned a month to provide the Christmas crafting supplies to the other 11 members. We all receive the same supplies and post our creations on the last day of every month. It's interesting to see how we all come up with something different with the same kit of supplies.
This month our hostess supplying all the goodies is Suzanne Dahlberg. She's provided all sorts of paper crafting goodness, lots of patterned and shimmery papers, stamped images, and pretty ribbons. This month I came up with three cards - it seems I've been adding one a month since this started. If it keeps up I will be in big trouble come December :) !!I cut this one at a diagonal showing off both sides of the pretty paper Suzanne gave us -Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather. I triple stacked some buttons and topped them off with a pearl half and a figure 8 looped bow. I colored my dove with green and purple to coordinate with the papers and added a little silver bling for a little Christmas sparkle.
Next I used that Winter Woods scene from A Muse Studio to create a more traditional Christmas card in red and green. I dded lots of twine - in the bow, wrapped around the sentiment, and wrapped around the card for a really rustic feel. You can put the button face up or down - I think it looks great either way - as seen in the photos.
For my last card I went back to the purple - and as you might already know red and purple are one of my favorite color combos. I think this one most represents my style.
This one is fun and whimsical yet full of the bling elements that I love. This card showcases one of my trade marks - the seam binding woven through the lace trim, and again more sparkle in the night sky as Santa makes his rounds.
If you like these, why not see what the rest of the team came up with for this months challenge? Here's a list of the designers with links to their blogs!
