WOYWW #402 & Christmas Card Throwdown #3

Part of my messy desk this week is the aftermath of making my card for the Christmas Throwdown Challenge - with a head cold. Bob was kind enough to share. Front left corner is a pile of designer series paper I need to identify and some self-inflating Valentine's I want to put into the mail. The paper keeper in the center is full of the Cherry Cobbler cardstock scrap used for the card you can just see next to it... and the close up below.

As you can see, the challenge this week was to showcase 'drinks' on our Christmas card. Here's the one I came up with.

Cherry Cobbler card and mat bases
Cable Knit embossing folder from SU
EB folder used on Pink Pirouette card stock.
The cup is from Echo Park die set - Tea Time
Image stamped on the cup is SU Oh What Fun
Curly Label Punch
Cherry Cobbler Enamel Dots
Eye lash yarn
I don't know the company for the stamp image. I got it in an image swap several years ago.

I hope you'll join us over at Christmas Card Throwdown. This is a great challenge to start knocking your cards out early. 

Also, I have started a color challenge here. The Color Challenge is posted the third Monday of each month. Feel free to grab the button from my sidebar and place on your blog.

  4. As a knitter I have embossing folder envy - I'll have to look for that one! Your card has such a cosy feel. I love the very Christmassy dark red mixed with the less traditional pink - beautiful.

  9. Happy WOYWW. I used to make Christmas cards all year round, but now I seem to have the gone the other way and not making cards at all ! I am buying cards in shops, which I haven't done for years. I just want to do mixed media, painting etc. Funny how we go in stages with our crafting. Ali x #26
