Christmas Card for Two Challenges

Good morning, all!  The card I am sharing with you I made and it is for 2 challenges at two of my favourite blogs: Paper Playtime where the challenge was to use a clock, ticket or tag and Made by Momo where the challenge was to use embossing.

Now I know I am my worst critic but this card is not at all as I envisioned it.  And I am not sure that I even like it that much but it's done :)  There were many little steps to get it this way.  First I used two $1.50 stamps from Michaels and water coloured them.  I used the tag maker punch from Creative Memories to make the tag and added the large ornament and button to it .  The light blue paper was run through the Cuttlebug with the D'Vine Swirls folder and the sentiment was heat embossed with silver.  All edges were inked with a blue colour.  The silver glitter paper was punched with an EK Success border punch.  And the final step was lots and lots of glitter glue.  I like the look but this is what I am not sure of as it made the white paper curl.  Maybe I should have used less. 

Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you have a great one!  I am off to work so no time to play.  Take care my friends.

  1. Very cute card Heather. I love the colours.

  2. Very cute, love the colours.

    Did the paper curl because of the glue?
    If so I would use a thicker card stock or double it up.

    And if it curled from the watercolour use water colour paper, i just bought some the cheap canson one. or wipe the brush so there is like no water and it is damp that helps prevent curling too.

    Anyway it adds character. : ]
