Vintage Christmas At C2CU

November’s main theme at Crafts-Too-Challenge You is A Vintage Christmas. There are two parts to the monthly challenge and today we are onto the second part which is: – Polychromatic

This is the opposite to Monochromatic so now you can use colour to your hearts content for the rest of the month.

Crisp and clean was my first thought when I had finished this card so it sat on my desk for ages because I just wasn’t sure if it was the effect I wanted. Glad that I left as is, because it grew on me.

Could not resist using this angelic image from a Nellie Christmas sheet. Placed behind a very pretty frame which I painted with a rather vibrant red then heated 3 different types of distress embossing powders over it. The chipboard flower was enhanced with the same ingredients.


The rest of the design team have worked really hard to bring you some amazing inspiration so pop here to have a peek.
