Whiff of Joy Challenge 83


The Whiff of Joy are having a DT call, so I thought I'd try out for it. I love WOJ stamps, and would be absolutely overjoyed if I got on the team, but it may be a bit out of my league at the moment.

The challenge is a fab sketch by Bev, which I've flipped. I've actually made my first Christmas card the year!


I've used the image Wee and Christmas tree coloured with Promarkers. I've added Dovecraft gems as baubles and gold Stickles on the star and around it. I've shaped the corners with an inverted corner punch, then inked the edges with Fired Brick Distress ink. The image has been matted onto green DCWV card, then red DCWV card, which has been punched at the base with a snowflake Fiskars punch.

 I've run some green DCWV card through the Cuttlebug using a Christmas embossing folder, then gone over the embossed parts with Shabby Shutters Distress ink to show it off a bit more. I've also punched some snowflakes at the base. All the punched snowflakes have gold Stickles added to them.


The poinsettia has been done using Marianne Design Creatables die cuts, then sprayed with Crafter's Companion gold glitter spray, and some gold Stickles added. I've added a washer with a sentiment sticker by Cosmo Cricket, and a metallic red brad, which also has some gold Stickles added to it.


The dp is by Cosmo Cricket. The red ribbon is from my stash. Cardstock is 6 x 6" red Bazzill.


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

The Cuttlebug Spot - Christmas in July
Christmas Card Challenges #33 - Inspiration pic - (I've used the tree on the stocking as my inspiration)
Magical Crafts Challenge 19 - Christmas in July
Aud Sentiments Challenge 7 - Choose your own Christmas sentiment
