Kadoodle and A spoon full of sugar challenge 71



Hi everyone! A card today for A spoon full of sugar where this time the challenge is a Christmas Creation so I thought I'd show this card which I haven't had a chance to upload. I've used my new holly swirls stamp from the Joie de noel set for Kadoodle at the Craft Barn as the focal image in dark green Ancient Page ink and also to stamp all the background papers throughout the Tri Shutter Card with a brilliance gold pearlescent ink. It's a very easy card to make, it just takes a long time to cut all the panels :D. There's a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers which shows how to make it. I used Oval nestabilities, a craftwork cards die cut greeting, some green ribbon, punched snowflakes, gems, pearls and red flower to finish.
