Holiday Hellos Creative Challenge

Since Christmas is just around the corner, I've been thinking about the holidays. I enjoy receiving Christmas cards--and not only the cards, but the personal update that is often tucked inside! So I thought this month's challenge could focus on Christmas cards--what a great way to get in the holiday spirit!

You can use anything you want, any color palletes, anything--just share a Christmas greeting with us! I'm excited to see what you come up with!

As always the deadline is the last day of the month (November 30), and please make sure that your link works once you submit your project idea.

Thanks--and happy holidays! (Is it too early to say that?)

Hi Shelli! Here are some cards we did for a recent demonstrator swap challenge. Christmas cards using non-traditional colors and at least one color from each color family.

It's not too early for happy holidays greetings! The Challenge this month is perfect--I created a Card in a Tin to include a note inside, or even a family photo.

The tin used to hold chocolates, so I hope anyone who receives this 'card in a tin' from me won't be disappointed when they open it to find... no chocolate!

The photo doesn't do this one justice, but it is my favorite so far this holiday season. I love the way it looks in person.

Here's a nice clean and simple one highlighting the new holiday bundles:

And finally, here's one I made with my stamp club using the Letterpress plates and a little rock 'n roll on the snowflake:

Here is a fun pocket card that I made as soon as I returned from Convention (one of the many great ideas I got from Convention). Loved this syle for a card!

Hi Shelli! I've been in the Christmas spirit for a little while now {hee!} Here are a few of the cards I've made so far this year. I think I've fallen in love with Cherry Cobbler and Seam Binding ribbon!:

Shelli, you must have been suffering from temporary insanity when you picked holiday cards for this month's contest theme. Don't you know that you are going to have to look at hundreds of cards for this one :) Hope you like what I have to offer!

I saw a store bought card that inspired me to create one of my own using Stampin' Up! stamps. It was a fun personal challenge!

This is another card I made using a new stamp and an old stamp. Love how they coordinate!
