World Card Making Day 2012; Challenge 1, Holiday Greetings


I'm thrilled to finally get some play time in my "rubber room" and participate in World Card Making Day! It seems like forever since I made a card.

In honor of WCMD"The Classroom" is hosting a day of challenges from some awesome designers with a prize of a $150 gift card to Ellen Hutson's store up for grabs. 

The first challenge was to "create a holiday greeting", and since Julie used a collage of holiday sentiments on her sample card, I took the "greeting" part of the challenge literally. Starting with a Tim Holtz alterations folder, I created an embossed greeting layer and colored with a real red marker from Stampin' UP! a couple of the words for emphasis. Then I die cut a poinsettia using Spellbinder's dies, adding some gold bling to the center. A scrap of ribbon for leaves and a cherry cobbler card base and done! Whew! Boy am I rusty! But it definitely feels good to get inky.

Thank you for stopping by.



  1. Beautiful card. What a great idea to color some of the embossed words.

  2. This really caught my eye - over on the WCMD gallery (The Classroom). Absolutely beautiful :)

  3. Wow, this is gorgeous, Colleen! Good to see you crafting again. I've missed you.

  4. Fabulous card gf! I am amazed at how beautifully you colored those words! The letters look like they were die cut and attached. Just wonderful!


Thank you for taking time to comment . . . it feeds my mojo!
