CHNC challenge 18: use a die cut

Before introducing you to challenge 18, I want to thank all those who entered challenge 17, which wasn't an easy one - there weren't quite so many players as usual, but I guess that with Easter having just been and another Bank Holiday yesterday, making Christmas cards has been put down the list a bit.

Well, today's challenge 18 is easier than last week's - all you need to do is use a die cut - it can be one that you have cut yourself using a nestie, a sizzix or other similar die, a craft robo or cricut shape that you've cut ... or even a bought ready-made die cut - how easy is that?!

I used a Nellie Snellen die cut (ran through my cuttelebug) for my card - you can read further details here on my regular crafting blog 'My crafty outlook' and also see what other challenges I entered with it.

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 a die cut - 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 6 May. 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 7 May - and as this will be the first challenge of a new month, there will be a randomly drawn prize.

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 new challenge blog - thank you.

I look forward to seeing your creations.
