Hi all! I’ve registered for the 12 days of Christmas challenge. I can’t promise that I’ll be able o all 12 days, but I shall do my very best too. Here are 2 cards, these I made last night. I created the cards and envelopes for scratch. I also used techniques from the Word Art 2 master class.November 26, 2017 at 6:13 pm #15944
Nice cards. I guess you are ahead of the game!
Starting on Dec 1st, you will get templates for cards and envelopes too and you can create new ones!November 26, 2017 at 6:33 pm #15946
Thank you Cassel! I’m only ahead, as the weather is awful here, cold and snowy. I’m not one for the telly. When I have spare time I like to while it away creating cards well in advance, so all I have to do closer the time is make minor adjustments. It’s always handy having spare cards at hand. Looking forward to the challenge.November 26, 2017 at 6:59 pm #15949AprilDawnParticipant

Hi everyone! I’ve signed up for the challenge and am working on my 1st card now! What a fun challenge!

I’ve completed Day 1’s card and it was sooo much fun! I used Nibbles Skribbles kit Christmas Sparkle. That is my Christmas tree my girls decorated for me on Thanksgiving Day.
I am sooo looking forward to tomorrow! I have my grandson for the weekend and I will just have to throw him off my computer to do Day 2-3! LOL

Good Evening Folks,
I registered for the challenge. I can’t make any promises that I will be able to complete all 12 of them but I did get today’s done. Hope you like it.December 1, 2017 at 5:51 pm #16068
By the way, I forgot to say that the paper I used was from Kimberly Cameron & the rest is all mine.December 1, 2017 at 5:52 pm #16069
Very pretty DeLoris.December 1, 2017 at 6:01 pm #16071December 1, 2017 at 6:04 pm #16076
Forgot to get rid of excess space so first image was a bit small, hope the second is bigger. Told you I was tired, yawn, yawn…….December 1, 2017 at 6:36 pm #16077
Wow, quite a start to this challenge!
Welcome Rose, to the Campus. I hope you get inspired by what everyone is sharing in the forum.
I am curious to know: will you print your cards? I hope so, as they will be easier to mail, and it will probably put a smile on a letter carrier too, to see such unique letters!December 1, 2017 at 7:21 pm #16078December 1, 2017 at 7:23 pm #16079
Thank you, Cassel!
I don’t have a printer here, but I will upload mine on Zazzle so other people can print them. 🙂December 1, 2017 at 10:09 pm #16083Wanda (Sue) McGuireParticipant
My computer is in the shop with all my files and I am down with a stomach virus. Not much to work with but I gave it a whirl. I did not really understand much about the template either. Hope to get my computer back and hopefully can do a much better job on the next ones. I did not resize so hope that is OK. I was thinking Facebook.December 2, 2017 at 2:01 am #16084JoAnn GodwinParticipant
Thank you for having me. Great job on the ones I have seen so far. Thank you to my good friend DeLoris for telling me about this and inviting me to join. Should be fun.

I was asked by a very dear friend to make a Christmas card for him, using a photo of his now 6 month old puppy Rigbey. I came up with this 3D card, which can be printed on 5×7 photo paper or greeting card. The Poinsettia frame is a font, Frames and borders, small case letter w, using Bold with the foreground colour gold, and background colour red. Using the magic wand to highlight the petals, bevel tool. Select none. Select the leaves, change colour to green, and flood fill, then bevel. I made the snow, erasing the snow off the dogs face. I used the triangle shape to create the envelope and the back of the card, making sure the gold borders were all the same sized pixels. I didn’t get the first day’s email until late last night, and Cassel, I haven’t received today’s email either. Perhaps I should reregister, unless you can re enter my email address. Most of the cards I make are either sent via email, or printed off on plain Avery greeting cards.December 2, 2017 at 10:29 am #16089
Sue, you don’t have to re-register as your account has the proper access and the system says it did send you the email, so I wonder if it might have gone in the spam folder or been deleted as spam for whatever reason. The next one should be going out very shortly.
For those who might be new to using templates, there is an article on this so you can learn the basics:December 2, 2017 at 3:56 pm #16100
Here’s my day 02 card and envelope. I am having soo much fun with this challenge!
I used Kimeric Kreations new scrapbooking kit Tis The Season To Sparkle. It is a beautiful kit!
I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am and I look forward to seeing what gets posted here and in Facebook!
DeLorisDecember 2, 2017 at 8:06 pm #16103
Here’s my No.2. I did an envelope this time as the card was an easy one.
I used Christmas brushes and the plugin EC Impact-Chrome set to gold. I used a texture for the card.
Sheila xDecember 3, 2017 at 12:06 am #16106JoAnn GodwinParticipant
Hope I’m doing this rightDecember 3, 2017 at 9:09 am #16110MicheleParticipant
I love what everyone’s been doing. I couldn’t manage to do Day 1, but here’s Day 2.
I used the background and ornaments (a little altered) from Pixel Scrapper by Marisa L. I created the Happy Holidays circle, then added one of Cass’s trees and used a starburst brush to top the tree. I copied the tree to the back of the card and added some picture tube presents. Since the presents came with a drop shadow, I added one to the tree. I just hope I got the right angle; I’m not that confident with drop shadows yet. The reason I included two pics of the card and the envelope is I wanted to display what the front and back would look like since I can’t digitally fold them. (Before you ask, yes, I do have OCD; lol.)December 3, 2017 at 1:50 pm #16114
Here’s a card I made last night. To be printed on 5×7 photo paper, or emailed. Using my own photo. (Snowman was a free clipart from Corel) Made the card, envelope and stamps from scratch, extracted the pen from a photo, the other elements I found in PSP tube depot. comDecember 3, 2017 at 5:33 pm #16117
Here is my No 3. I used images from Pixabay and Cassels Christmas Lights tube. I used a brick texture for the card front. I used EC plugin to make the gold edgings. TFL.
Sheila xDecember 3, 2017 at 7:49 pm #16120
Here is my Day 2 project. I reworked the template because the square card doesn’t work on Zazzle where I upload my work.
The rest of the elements are made myself from patterns in this bundle but I don’t recommend it because the .jpg files are not print quality and I had to use Inkscape to extract the vectors to use the patterns.December 3, 2017 at 8:54 pm #16122
