Blogtoberfest 2014 Day 25 - Beat the Christmas Rush

It is the 25th so that means it is the day to link up with Sue's Beat the Christmas Rush.  I am killing two birds with one stone this month and combining this challenge with the Scrapology card challenge which is to make Christmas cards in Blue and Silver.

Remember the embossed silver cardstock and blue die cut snowflakes that were littering my desk for WOYWW well they became these (and let me tell you they were a right pig to photograph due to the holographic nature of the silver cardstock!!) -

I made 5 cards using two different Cuttlebug snowflake folders and then stuck various die cut snowflakes over the top mainly using  Joy crafts, Cuttlebug and Penny Black dies.  I then accented the snowflakes with clear and blue gemstones from my stash.  The sentiment is by Penny Black and I used Stampin' Up punches for the mats.

Please excuse the awful quality of the photographs I tried so many different ways of trying to get a decent picture - in the end I had to stand really far away with no flash on and zoom in :(

There is still time to enter the Scrapology card challenge as it doesn't close till 15th November.


  1. Aww these are gorgeous cards, Karen. Thanks so much for keeping up with Beat the Christmas Rush.

  2. I bet the cards are blinging in real life .... :D

  3. Well done on adding more Christmas cards to your stock, like Ali said I bet they look much more blingy IRL!! Always a shame when something doesn't photograph as good as it looks!!! Txx

  4. They're lovely!

    I hadn't even realised that it was 25th yesterday until you said - two months to go, then!

  5. wow, I would hate to try and photograph those ..... they look amazing anyway though :-)

  6. Super cards, as Wendy says difficult to photograph - but you managed it well. Thanks for taking part in the Scrapology card challenge.
