Happy Birthday! (oh, and Merry Christmas!)

Daring Cardmakers are celebrating their 7th birthday this week and as ever, I was looking forward to Friday morning to find out what the challenge for this week would be. I was not disappointed! The theme this week was of course “birthdays” mixed together with a colour combo – rainbow.

The cake looks sooooo good! Don’t you think? Sometimes I think about visiting other blogs but quite frankly, I don’t have the time. Plus, the teams blogs are full of great ideas. As I had some extra time on my hands today, I decided to give the Christmas card a go too. I tried to use more or less the same layout for both cards. I really enjoyed having a bit of “me” time today just sitting at my desk for a few hours. Here are the cards I made…….

Materials used:
Paper: Forever Christmas Cards Paperstack (free in a magazine)
Doodle Deux Collection 6×6
Regular plain cardstock
Premimum glitter scrapbook paper – Santa Claus
Stamps: Dani Peuß Klartext Stempel
My Paper World – Christmas Decoration and Embellishments
Ribbon: Idee
Tools: Big Shot Machine, XCUT Build a Scene Garden party set, heat tool
Other: Fineliners, embossing powder, ink pads, Martha Stewart border punch, sticky-back pearls

I really like my birthday card but I’m not so impressed with how the Christmas card turned out. I guess maybe I’m not feeling Christmassy enough yet!?

Anyway…..Happy Birthday Daring Cardmakers! http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.de/
