Before I get to today's challenge, I want to tell you some exciting news about a new sponsor: Di's Digi Downloads. I was fortunate enough to win some of their lovely digis as prizes for taking part in a couple of challenges and, as a result, they kindly agreed to sponsor my Christmas challenges. You can get a glipse of Di's gorgeous digis here - more information next week, as they will be sponsoring my challenge for Saturday 3 September.
Now on to this week's challenge - I'm asking you, please, to 'build it up' - you may wish to include some decoupage or pyramage ... or just make sure your card has at least three layers - the choice is yours. The main reasons for this challenge blog is to help you to build up a stock of Christmas cards ahead of the 'panic' season, so I try to be as flexible as possible.
For my card I've used some Jolly Nation decoupage, a piece of DCWV backing paper and a recycled piece of card that features the star, wrapped with some fancy gold twine - more info here on my regular crafting blog.
As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please remember to use at least 3 layers on your card - apart from that, anything goes.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 2 September. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.
You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.
A new challenge will be set on 3 September - as this will be the first Saturday in the month, there will be a prize for a randomly picked winner - given by our new sponsor, Di's Digi Downloads.
Please add your link to inlinkz. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.
If you haven't done so already, please become a follower and grab my bright pink button to post on your sidebar and help continue to spread the word about this challenge blog - thank you.
I look forward to seeing your creations.
