J is for....

Joy fold cards over at the ABC Christmas challenge. When my pal Kathy gave a link for this I just knew I wanted to have a go.

So with a Distress Inked Tilda I set about making this new sort of card ( new for me anyway). I have used nests to cut out my shapes and a MS Snowflake punch. Tilda is teamedbwith DCWV papers and card stock on a Papermania Kraft card stock. The various sentiments are by LOTV, D&D and a Bargain one from my craft weekend in Feb.

I have to say I do like the Crafter's Companion Water Colour Board 300g. Although you do have to be careful with the amount of water otherwise it begins to break down.

Do go and check out the ABC Challenge Blog as the DT work is lovely and the variety of styles is great. Thanks to the team for the inspiration and to Helen for the tutorial on how to make the card. Thanks for the fun. Why not have a go?

Thanks for stopping by on your travels. C xxx
