Scrapology - December Card Challenge

This month we at Scrapology you are challenged to create a Christmas card using  what ever method or materials you wish. 

For my card I downloaded a vintage postcard from the Internet as the focal point of my card. The image was printed onto photo paper and then matted onto card and patterned paper before fixing to a white card blank. I embelished the card with gold peel off stickers, a fir cone metal charm, some ribbon and a Christmas spray which were decorating a chocolate box last Christmas.

Pop over to Scrapology to see all the team's cards and to find full details of the challenge.

Scrapology - December Layout Challenge

This month on Scrapology we are scraplifiting a layout by Miki Krueger.  For my layout I used a very recent photo taken just last month at Sea Palling on the North Norfolk coast. It was a lovely sunny day and I snapped this photo of my daughter walking along the shore.

The papers I used this month were from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss and Sn@p! collections. To make my photos 'pop' I mounted it on black cardstock and also added black in the embelishments. A handful of buttons were added and some stickers from Simple Stories.

Here is Miki's orginal layout ......

 .... and Lynn's sketch.

Don't forget to hop over to the Scrapology blog to see all the team's layouts and to join in the challenge.
