Last Challenge of the year at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown

When I started this blog at the end of last year I did it so I would not be stressed or rushed making Christmas cards now. I succeeded and I hope you did too. This is our last challenge this year but don't worry we will be back in January with more challenges and ideas for getting you organised for Christmas 2013.
I couldn't have done it with out my team though: Mynnette who joined me at the beginning and Ruth, Louise, Danielle and Patty who joined us half way through the year - thanks ladies I'm looking forward to working with you next year.
For this week's challenge we are going Crackers - take a look

Interpret this as you wish - images of crackers, hats, toys confetti etc - you can even do a joke card it's up to you.
I'm afraid I didn't do anything adventurous - my card just looks like a cracker - take a look

This is actually a Diamond Fold card embellished for Christmas - here's another view

Stamps: Christmas Blessings
Ink: Midnight Muse
Card Stock: Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Naturals White
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch
Other: Square Dies
(All the Stampin' Up supplies listed above and more can be ordered through me - just check out the details above in the top tab)

Good luck with the challenge find us HERE - bye for now - Jacqueline xx


  1. This is fantastic and looks complicated to me! Great card to finish the year!

  2. You know I love this card! It looks so complicated and I think it's a fold we have made before. But it is a cracker, and I'd never noticed that before! You are a card-genius to have thought of it!

  3. This is amazing, Jacqueline! A fabulous folded creation! I feel SO blessed to have been along for this year of challenges--I'm planning on giving out most of the cards I've made this year and so glad to get to start again in January! HUGS to you! :)

  4. This is really cool Jacqueline! I really need to start stretching myself and trying some of these fabulous folds that I'm seeing lately. Thanks for your sweet words for the DT - I have been so very happy to be part of this fabulous team of wonderful ladies, thanks for giving me the opportunity. Hugs to you! D
