Stampin' Up! Pines & Poinsettias for Christmas Card Club

Gosh another fortnight has passed already and  therefore another Christmas Card Club Challenge.  This week the challenge has been set by Carol and she has set the challenge of ribbons and lace (punched or real).  I've combined punched lace and real red taffeta and satin ribbons, along with the scallop trim corner punch to lace the corners of the real red matting layer and I've also used the stripes embossing folder to create my own checked layer. 

Creeping in now and probably on a regular basis are labels made with the Stampin' Up! UK Summer Mini's new framelits dies which you can use to frame an image and matt them in different or the same colour.  By using two sizes at the same time you can create your own frames or apertures.  You can look at these in more detail by checking out the Stampin' Up! UK Summer Mini Catalogue via the link in my sidebar. 

Don't forget to visit all the other ladies in the club for more Christmas ideas and check back in two weeks for my challenge.  I can't tell you anymore about it just now, so make a date to visit the Christmas Card Club ladies again soon.

Have a great day!
