CHNC challenge 58: use a die cut

It was lovely to see so many entering last week's challenge - just a reminder: please make sure your entry is a Christmas card. So many 'regulars' from last year beginning their Christmas cards and others coming on board too - it's amazing that we are already now into February.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 57. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 3:  Pinky

who shared this beautiful card:

Congratulations, Pinky! Please email me - - so I can arrange for you to receive your CD from Ooh la la Creations.

Challenge 58

For challenge 58 I'm asking you to use a die cut -
please remember that it must be a Christmas card.

You might want to use a die cut that you create using your Big Shot, Cuttlebug or similar, using a nestablitity or similar die - or you might want to use a shop-bought die cut that is ready to put on your card.

This challenge is being sponsored by Crimson Cloud, a new sponsor for CHNC. I am so grateful to all the new sponsors that are supporting my challenges, including Crimson Cloud:

"Crimson Cloud is a mother/daughter venture - a way to indulge our joint passion of cardmaking and crafting. We only sell products that we have tried, tested and love using. We have developed our own exclusive range of dies cuts, digital stamps, svg files and "Make Your Own Card" kits which reflect our styles of card making - and hopefully yours too!"

The randomly-chosen winner will receive three packs of die cuts of their choice from the wide selection at Crimson Cloud.

For my card I've used some die cut stars, as well as some lovely embossed organza ribbon. You can read more about it and the challenges I've entered on my regular crafting blog My Crafty Outlook here:

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week you must use at least one die cut, whether shop-bought or one that you cut.

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 10 February. 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 11 February.

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.
