Christmas of the past

It's an olden day Christmas card for Winter Wonderland . This was a very different challenge for a Christmas card, I wasn't sure this card would work with the brown embossed holly, I thought it might be too drab for a Christmas card. It certainly isn't for everybody but the more I look at it IRL I love it and I'm going to make more to give to people. It is just one of those times when I think that is exactly the look I want for certain people but I wonder how many more challenges I'll do before Christmas and say that. I am still loving this challenge blog it is so much fun, the girls cards are awesome every week. My attempt on crackers didn't work out last week but it was fantastic to look the other creations. Happy Mondayu.


  1. This is lovely Amanda! It's not drab at all! I love the simplicity of it. Love the distress edges and the beautiful embossing ... and I love the shades of brown :o)

    Thank you for joining us at Winter Wonderland.

  6. Amanda, your card is fab! I love using this embossing folder myself and I always add some red foil to the berries. Brown is one of my favorite colours to play with so this works for me!! Thank You so much for playing along with us again! :o) xx
