The 2012 Christmas Card Challenge! February
Did you miss January's Christmas Card Challenge? Don't worry! Here we are in February, and ready to go AGAIN!
**Do you want to join the 2012 CCC but don't have a blog? Problem solved!! Leave a comment below, and I will direct you to where you can upload your picture and link it back here for the contest! Don't let being blogless (is that a new word??) stop you from joining the challenge!
First, here are the prizes I sent for the January Challenge - a Stampin' Up stamp set, and 4 bottles of Stickes that I consider to be the essential Christmas colors: Christmas Red, Green, Golden Rod, and Holly.
Please refer to the original rules and regs post by clicking HERE. They're easy! :)
Post the above logo on your blog, and link back to this post so when people click it, they can go right from your blog here, and so on and so forth.
OK.... so here it is!
February 2012's challenge is: Use the color RED in honor of Valentine's Day.
One exception to the challenge rule this month is to use one other color like white as a contrast.... the additional color is of your own choosing.
Make your 6 cards including ornaments, post it to your blog, and use the linky (at the end) in this post to link back here.
Remember you have until midnight on the 20th with voting starting on the 21st through the 24th! The winner will be announced on the 25th.
Here are my pictures for February's Challenge.
I used the Stampin' Up Ornament punch and the Scallop Trim border to make the focal point of the card, the Scrolls embossing folder from Cuttlebug/Provo Craft, and my very favorite Merry Christmas Stamp embossed in white for the sentiment. Behind the negative ornament image is red glitter paper, with the white trim highlighted in Diamond Stickles.
I hope you enjoy making your RED Februrary Christmas Cards!
